They have also become a hugely popular trend in recent years, with #houseplanttok garnering over a whopping 92 million posts on TikTok! But with the plethora of houseplants to choose from, where does one begin? Here at Purely Shutters, we’ve curated a guide of our favourite houseplants for around your home, based on their maintenance and longevity.

Aloe Vera 

Our first pick of the best houseplants you could choose has got to be the super low-maintenance aloe vera plant. Not only is it very easy to care for, only requiring a water once or twice a week, but it also has many health benefits, making it essential for the home. It does however love a sunny spot, so make sure to place it right on your windowsill where it’s able to soak up the light. With our shutters, you can ensure that the slats are positioned for optimal sun-soaking potential!  

Snake Plant 

The Snake Plant, or by its proper name, the Sansevieria, is one of the best plants for improving air quality indoors. In fact, it is said that it is incredibly effective at purifying air and removing harmful toxins that naturally build up within the home, through its release of oxygen during the night. What makes the snake plant even more suited as a houseplant is that it happily be neglected and doesn’t require too much upkeep, just make sure to water it at least once a week!

Peace Lily 

The Peace Lily is our third pick, and very similar to our previous two, is a lovely low-maintenance plant that purifies the indoor air and improves our general well-being overall. They flourish in bright, indirect sunlight, where they will happily bloom, making them an ideal centre piece for your living room or kitchen. Bright, indirect sunlight plus our wide range of shutters equals a perfect living environment for the peace lily – no wonder they’re a household favourite!  

Devil’s Ivy 

This household plant is the one for those of you who tend to forget to care for your plants. The pothos, otherwise known as Devil’s Ivy, is arguably the easiest plants to grow, and incredibly adaptable to its surroundings. They are a fast-growing plant, meaning your home will radiate serenity and greenery in no time, yet with zero effort. It thrives in pretty much any environment, making it a great addition to your home office or a room with solid panel shutters, all whilst improving your indoor air quality and making your working environment cleaner.
