Did you know we spend 90% of our lives indoors? Are you stunned by this number? I know I am. Luckily Biophilic Interior Design is extremely beneficial when it comes to creating a healthy living and working environment. Those benefits are much more than interior aesthetics. In short, Biophilic Interior Design means incorporating nature into our indoor environment. It comes from the word Biophilia – meaning Love of Nature. Biophilic Design focuses on creating a calming space with a visual connection with nature while improving wellbeing, health and productivity.
Here is How To Incorporate Biophilic Design Into Your Home
Biophilic Interior Design is bringing nature closer to us by implementing vegetation, natural light, textures and materials providing a positive impact on our everyday life and here is how:
1. Fresh Air
Open those windows widely and let the fresh air and sound of nature find the way into your home and your mind. Listen carefully to the sound of birds, rain or wind. Breathing in fresh air improves your immune system function and your mood.
2. Maximize Natural Light
Embrace natural light wherever possible.
Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin — vital to the regulation of calcium, lowering high blood pressure, helps muscles and overall health. Try to maximize natural light in your entire home by repositioning any piece of furniture, blinds, curtains, anything that’s blocking the full potential of sunlight.
