Incorporating Biophilic Design Into Your Home

Welcoming plants into your home has many proven benefits. From teaching about responsibility to improving air quality, houseplants have the potential to impact your home. But why do we stop at houseplants? What are other ways you can learn to let nature into your home?

The concept of biophilic design is based on the idea of biophilia, a hypothesis that humans have an attraction and connection with nature. Biophilia explains the awe you may feel when looking at a waterfall or the content feeling of laying in the grass and letting a summer breeze tickle your skin. Biophilic design works to incorporate elements of nature into the home.

Whether you are adding a living wall to your living room or working to create a more natural airflow throughout your space, simulating the natural world can create a more peaceful and relaxed environment. 

To help you understand the many ways you can incorporate biophilic design into your home, ApartmentGuide has a guide on the 14 patterns of biophilic design. Each pattern is not set in stone. They are just suggestions for how to create a more natural space. Read through to find which ones you already have in your home and what you can work on adding.
