Biophilic design has proven to increase wellbeing, health and productivity. As a big part of Biophilic interior design, plants are great at producing oxygen, removing VOCs and creating a beautiful calming space. Having the right plants in your bedroom will significantly improve your sleep environment, boost your mood and creativity.
When choosing the best plants for your bedroom, look for those who work hard at night to release oxygen, remove air toxins, and don't produce a strong scent.
