Last Updated on April 12, 2022 by Kravelv

Decorating and changing your home is something that everyone loves to do. It gives your home more personality and allows you to choose how it looks and functions. It also keeps you from getting bored with how your home is designed and looks. People are spending more and more on renovations, but these changes don’t have to be big.

In fact, something as simple as adding a few plants to your home can have a huge impact on the look and feel of your home. It can also have several benefits for your mood and mental health, as well. But with so many flower seed options out there, which are the best?

With that in mind, this article is going to look at some of the best houseplants you can have to de-stress your home and purify the air.


Bamboo is already one of the most common houseplants for people to have in their homes, and for good reason. In particular, bamboo palms can provide many different benefits for homeowners. First of all, they are great for cleaning up the air within your home, to ensure your air is pure. Also, they add a good amount of moisture into the air, which is great for dry areas.

They can also contribute to a beautifully designed home, with their tropical appearance. However, bamboo can be a bit of a pain for some people to grow as it does need some sunlight and requires a good amount of water. But if you can remember to water it and give it some light, it is a great option for your home and won’t be too tough to handle.

Aloe Vera

While most of us will use aloe vera gel for a sunburn, the aloe vera plant itself makes a great houseplant. Aloe vera can soothe the skin, help to detox our bodies and offers us several other health benefits as well. So while making your house look great, the plant can also improve your health at the same time.

The plant is also awesome for the quality of air in your home or apartment. It can keep your home’s air fresh from various pollutants, especially those that are found within the household cleaners we all use so much. However, if you don’t get a lot of natural sunlight or don’t have a decent light source, this plant might not be for you. Aloe vera is most comfortable in a desert setting, so it definitely likes to get a lot of sun every day.

English Ivy

When dealing with houseplants, many people like smaller plants that can fit in pots or planters. These are often easier to fit and make work in a home. However, there are definitely other larger and more prominent options available if that’s more your style. One of the most common and best is English Ivy. It climbs as it grows and you have likely seen it both inside and outside. It can hang on a wall, on a piece of furniture or really anywhere else you’d like it.

While it looks good and can provide a very unique design to a home, it also has many other benefits. For example, it is among the best plants on the planet at filtering and purifying the air. Also, the plant is relatively easy to grow and keep alive, as it can adapt to a number of situations, as long as there is some light available. 

In conclusion, we hope this blog post has been able to help you find some great houseplants for your home.
