Elevate Your Living Room with D&M Garden Centre's Top 6 Houseplants

If you're seeking a refreshing change in your living room, it's time to welcome some new houseplants into your space. Not only do plants bring a cozy and inviting ambiance, but they also have significant mental and physical health benefits. In fact, a well-known NASA study from 1989 found that houseplants can reduce indoor air pollutants, including benzene and formaldehyde. Recent research has further demonstrated that plants can boost mood, creativity, and reduce stress—an especially valuable quality in today's world.

Before expanding your plant family, consider your lighting situation. Bright light-loving indoor plants thrive in south-facing windows, which receive the most concentrated light. East- or west-facing windows are also suitable, although the light intensity is slightly lower. If natural light is limited, fret not! LED grow lights offer a practical solution. These lights come in various forms, from floor lamps to clip-on fixtures for end tables or bookshelves. The great news is that plenty of plants thrive in low light conditions, providing options for every living room.
