3 Reasons You Should Add a Plant to Your Home

Adding a plant to any room of your house adds life to it in a big way. They go beyond traditional home decoration and actually inject a layer of nature into any space, providing an immediate added sense of comfort. Because there are so many different kinds of plants and so many ways to show them off, check out this guide from Yates Home Sales on why we think you should add a plant to your home.

Plants Purify Indoor Air

One of the best benefits of adding plants in the home is one you can’t see happening. All plants naturally consume carbon dioxide as part of their photosynthetic process, exhaling oxygen at the end. Because humans breath carbon dioxide out and oxygen in, this is a match made in heaven. It also means that the more plants you have in your home, the better your air quality will be. Think about adding more plants to spaces where you spend a lot of time to truly feel the effects. A few extra plants in your bedroom can leave you waking up much more refreshed than you would normally, giving you a more restorative sleep and leading to a happier morning. Adding plants to your living room can help perk you up throughout the day, keeping the air clean. That way, you’ll feel more energized throughout your day.

Natural Humidifiers

Although you may not be aware of it, there’s water in the air all around us. In most cases, a little humidity goes a long way toward a happy human body. Because plants release 97 percent of the water they take in, having multiple plants has the advantage of keeping your home humid enough to promote good health. Some of the benefits of humidity release from plants include:

  • Decreased Respiratory Distress
  • Improved Skin Health
  • Decreased Colds
  • Decreased Sore Throats
  • Reduced Risk of Infection
  • Faster Healing
  • Improved sleep

A Pop of Personality

In addition to the several health benefits that houseplants offer, there’s also the more apparent benefit of simply looking good. Adding houseplants to your home is a fast, easy way to express yourself without having to break the bank on decorations. Because of the plethora of types of plants, options for containers, and choices for display, there are millions of ways you can show off your taste at home with plants. Want to add a subtle touch? A snake plant in the corner adds a lively element without visually encroaching on your space. A viney plant creeping down from the top of a shelf or table adds a layer of mystique. More adventurous? Why not hang a potted plant from your ceiling to show off your wild side?

Five Star rating across the board!

We have had a wonderful experience (start to finish) with everyone at Yates. I sent an e-mail earlier in the week letting all know how much we really appreciated everyone. I think we met or spoke with most of you staff and everyone was more than helpful with any questions we had.

Your folks definitely make this painless (for us anyways) as possible and we are truly grateful.

"I love my new home!"

I love my new home! I have received so many compliments. One couple in particular wanted to come by and see how we customized the outside. They also wanted a 2 story house and couldn’t visualize how it would look. They asked us about our experience with the home process. This couple is now purchasing a new home from Yates!

My home is “comfortable” and I got the kitchen I was dreaming of! Thank all of you at Yates Home Sales!

"...expertise and professionalism..."

We would like to thank Yates Home Sales for their expertise and professionalism with our new home. Our sales representative was very knowledgeable of her job and she knew what we wanted for our first home. We had toured many modular dealers but, my heart kept leading me back to Yates. The staff that built our home and the workers that put it together was on point with everything. We were never left with unanswered questions. Their tour homes is well kept and beautifully decorated inside so you as a customer can actually see yourself living in one of the modulars. That’s when my husband and I decided that Yates Homes was the place to go to have our home built.

So thanks to the staff at Yates for a job well done and a special thanks to our sales representative Lydia Gibson.

"We are very pleased..."

We are very pleased with our beautiful Yates home. The staff was very helpful and patient as we planned our custom built modular home. Since we had recently lost our first home to a fire we needed to move quickly to rebuild and move back on our land. Yates worked very hard to have our family in our new home as quickly as possible.

"...we highly recommend them..."

My wife is a nurse and I handle warranty claims for one of the largest companies in Southside Virginia. We both work in fields where we know how important customer service is and should be. We don’t mind one bit telling anyone about our experience with Yates Home Sales. In fact, we highly recommend them to anyone that asks about our home. If you are in the market for a new home, go by and meet Lydia, Scott, C.R. and everyone else at Yates Home Sales. Then go look around at other places. If a top notch home, honesty and customer service are what you are looking for, I’m willing to bet that you end up right back where you started.

"My family and I are so pleased..."

My family and I are so pleased with our new home from Yates, I cannot say enough about the quick and courteous service we have received! The entire process of buying our home was made easy by the excellent staff at Yates and the service after the purchase has been great! We had one small problem with our plumbing after we moved in and the service staff from Yates was on it and had it repaired very quickly with absolutely NO FUSS. In times when good products and service seem to be getting hard to find, Yates Homes stands out as a great local company! I would recommend Yates Homes to anyone who is in the market for a well-built modular home – sold by people who care about the customers they serve!
