What flowers to choose for the bedroom? A green wall or potted plants?
Safe plants for the bedroom.
The bedroom is a place where we can rest and recharge before another day. When designing your dream home, it’s worth paying more attention to this room because we spend approximately a third of our day there. When choosing flowers for the bedroom, consider not only the aesthetics but also the functionality of the design.
Consider carefully where to place individual specimens. Some plants may not tolerate too much light or proximity to a heater, while others may be harmed by drafts or frequent leaf touching. It’s essential to know plants predisposed to indoor spaces, especially bedrooms, to select the healthiest flowers for the room. Pay attention to their ability to absorb pollutants and the type of photosynthesis they undergo. Remember that some species may be toxic despite having many other positive characteristics. Exercise caution if children or pets have access to the plants. For example, peace lilies combine medicinal and poisonous properties. On one hand, these flowers purify the air by absorbing electromagnetic smog and harmful chemicals while increasing humidity in dry spaces. On the other hand, they contain dangerous calcium oxalates.
Carefully chosen bedroom plants will facilitate falling asleep and maintain proper air moisture. Now, the only choice left is: a vertical composition or traditional potted flowers? It’s valuable to understand the pros and cons of both options and choose what best suits your needs. On our website, you’ll find plants for vertical gardens and explore various types of vertical gardens where you can apply them.
Flowers on walls, excess, or the future of interior design?
Vertical gardens, known as ‘green walls‘ or ‘living walls,’ are gaining popularity every year. Besides enhancing the interior’s attractiveness, a green wall is also highly functional.
With automatic irrigation, you no longer need to worry about accidental overwatering or soil drying out. You can leave the plants at home worry-free during vacations. A living green wall is also not costly to maintain. A new vertical garden will be even more affordable if you opt for a self-assembly kit.
Uniquely designed vertical arrangements outclass ordinary potted flowers due to simplified maintenance and space-saving attributes. Nevertheless, regardless of the chosen solution, the most important aspect is creating a harmonious atmosphere that facilitates relaxation.
Well-maintained, happy bedroom plants will reward you with healthy, fully relaxing sleep.
In recent years, living green walls made of live plants have gained popularity. A vertical garden allows for utilizing wall surfaces without occupying valuable floor space.
If you dream of plants on the ceiling, a good choice would be moss and stabilized plants suspended, for instance, above the bed. These natural decorations require absolutely no maintenance, allowing for constant contact with nature. They work wonderfully in tight apartments or small block flats. Imagine waking up every morning to a view of a forest floor.
No space on the windowsill for plants? A vertical alternative.
Saving space on the windowsill or nightstand can be achieved with a vertical composition. Our green walls can accommodate many potted plants in a small area without taking up as much valuable space as a horizontal arrangement. The best bedroom plants for really busy individuals are pictures made of moss or walls of stabilized plants. For those who don’t plan significant renovations and like to rearrange furniture frequently, a good idea would be a mobile vertical garden. Here, we offer significant assistance, as ready-made portable green walls are available in our online store.
A creative solution might also be placing flowers on shelves or decorating walls with pictures portraying botanical motifs. Besides botanical illustrations, you can also place dried laminated flowers and leaves of selected species in frames.
An original idea would be live plants maintained in transparent jars. Create your small ecosystem in the form of a forest in a jar. Plants suitable for this specific cultivation are usually ivies, peace lilies (Spathiphyllum), wandering jews (Tradescantia), ferns (Polypodiaceae), or club moss (Selaginella kraussiana). Of course, feel free to experiment with other varieties.
For the closed jar, select plants that like moisture, while for open containers, you can place succulents and cacti, which require less frequent watering and are very resilient and easy to maintain. Apart from the plants, place decorative stones, bits of bark, and twigs in the jars. Ensure the right type and depth of the substrate for your plants to root properly. By using reused jars or any glass container, you contribute to the planet. Do something for the environment, produce less waste, and avoid buying unnecessary items. Achieve an intriguing decorative effect by placing several glass containers, maintained in a similar style but differing in size, next to each other. A forest in a jar is also a fantastic idea for an original gift for someone close who also loves plants.
Bedroom plants producing oxygen at night.
When selecting flowers for the bedroom, opt for species that remove toxins and air pollutants commonly found in buildings. Using cleaning agents, aerosols, and deodorants unknowingly disperses harmful volatile substances. Many new interior elements, such as newly purchased furniture, carpets, textiles, and laminates, emit toxic formaldehyde. Dust from furniture or bedding, pet dander, and mites are the most common allergens indoors. Smoking or cooking emissions are also significant. Thick carpets, poorly ventilated, damp spaces are a haven for all kinds of molds and fungi, which can cause respiratory and skin irritations and allergies. The air quality indoors might be worse than outdoors.
It’s essential to practice airing the room just before sleeping and ensure proper ventilation, especially at night. Primarily, maintaining order in the apartment and regularly cleaning all flat surfaces and nooks from dust is crucial. To increase oxygen content in the air, choose a few of the recommended plant species. Bedroom plants conducive to better rest produce oxygen at night while simultaneously absorbing carbon dioxide and the aforementioned pollutants. This process is known as reverse photosynthesis. Examples of such species are peace lilies or snake plants.
Even if you have plants that only produce oxygen during the day, don’t worry. In a well-ventilated room, their carbon dioxide production is negligible. Green walls made of living plants will absorb pollutants and release water vapor, which will humidify the air and facilitate breathing.
Green wall – the role of colors in interior design.
Living in constant haste, we need a place where we can find respite. Walls in delicate pastel shades reduce stress and promote tranquility, while intense, saturated colors can cause anxiety. The most calming color is green. The color green signifies calmness, hope, and is associated with nature and relaxation. Introduce plants into the bedroom to enjoy their positive influence without changing the wall colors. Plan the area where the green wall will be and choose the best flowers for the bedroom.
Remember that color perception is influenced by hue and the intensity of lighting. Pointed lamps (directed, for example, at the vertical garden) or those placed near the bedhead to enable reading before sleep create a more pleasant and cozier atmosphere than strong overhead light. An aquarium is also an interesting decoration and, at the same time, provides subtle illumination. If you don’t plan on having animals, you can set up a striking aquarium planted only with plants. So-called Dutch aquariums, where greenery takes the lead, resemble underwater botanical gardens. Plants act as natural water filters, so maintaining such a tank shouldn’t be challenging. With few fish or none, you won’t see green algae on the aquarium glass. Proper care and fertilization will ensure that the plants thrive, becoming an attractive interior decoration.
When choosing a color for the bedroom, follow your preferences, temperament, and the style of the entire apartment. Besides how a color affects your mood, it’s essential to match it with the accents in other rooms.
What if you can’t decide on one color because you like too many? Opt for a neutral background in white or gray. Thanks to this approach, accessories in various shades won’t create a cluttered impression. Experiment with different color combinations to create a palette that suits your taste. Graphic programs will be helpful. It’s worth examining digital visualization first before translating the project from your mind onto the apartment walls.
Do you like unconventional ideas to liven up the interior? A wall of live flowers will introduce new textures and shades, elevating the bedroom or any other room to a higher level.
Appropriate plants for the bedroom, or which ones?
Stressful work and an unhealthy lifestyle contribute to weakening the body’s immunity. From a young age, we start dealing with lifestyle diseases and perpetual fatigue. For an increasing number of people, health becomes a priority. They seek the best ways to improve it.
Not everyone knows that plants in our immediate surroundings have such a crucial impact on our quality of life. Plants in the bedroom are particularly important because that’s where we spend a significant amount of time. Depending on preferences and needs, select the best flowers for your bedroom. For a room with high pollution levels, you can choose ferns or snake plants. These are air-purifying plants. Lavender or jasmine, known for their relaxing aromatic properties, can improve sleep quality and aid in falling asleep. To combat dry air, aloe and fig trees work best… Don’t limit yourself to our suggestions; confidently utilize the wide selection of the most interesting plants available on the market. Remember that even the healthiest bedroom plants won’t be able to fulfill their function without proper care. With the needs of the most hardworking individuals in mind, we’ve designed a vertical garden that automatically waters and illuminates plants.
In summary, a green wall made of living plants will allow you to use even a small space more efficiently than traditional potted flowers in the bedroom. Considering the numerous benefits a vertical arrangement brings to the interior, transferring plant cultivation from windowsills to a vertical garden seems to be the most convenient of modern botanical solutions. Plants will create an environment conducive to health and relaxation, and caring for them will bring you much joy.
