What Houseplants Can Make a Difference at Home?

One of the best inexpensive investments any homeowner can make is adding a houseplant (or a few) to their trove of treasures. Whether you’re looking for a leafy green that can add aesthetic value or one that can offer some benefits in addition to appearance (i.e., such as healing sunburns), there is a wide variety to choose from!

So, if you’re looking to add the perfect splash of green to your humble abode, here are a few top picks for plants that can genuinely make a difference in your space!

Aloe Vera

If you’ve spent a long day outdoors without any shade or sunscreen, there’s a chance you've experienced a sunburn once or twice before. When that happens, one of the most popular ways to help soothe the pain is to slather some aloe vera onto the burn. If you’d like to make sure that you always have some on deck, or like the look of the sharp, jagged leaves on the plant, consider having an aloe vera plant in your home!

Spider Plant

Are you looking to help improve your home’s indoor air quality? If so, you may want to consider setting your sights on a spider plant! Naturally adorned with long, elegant blades of leaves, this plant will make the perfect statement piece, as well as help your humble abode’s “IAQ.”

These beautiful specimens are the perfect fit for rooms with natural, pooling rays of sunlight and are ideal for all climates — consider them a “year-round” plant. Another benefit of spider plants is that they’re deemed low-maintenance, so they’re perfect for the homeowner that’s always on the go!

Areca Palm

Do you suffer from allergies? Whether they’re indoor, seasonal, or both, you know that they’re not pleasant in the slightest. However, if you’re wary about introducing a plant into your home (since there’s a chance it may flare up your allergies), consider going with an areca palm.

These beautiful, tropical-like plants provide an elegant touch of paradise in any setting. And since they’re deemed to be an allergy-friendly plant, you’ll feel much more at ease knowing that you can enjoy their stunning deep hues of green without the added concern.
