Decorating with plants is more popular than ever, especially this time of year. Studies show that houseplants are good for health. They release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, removing up to 87% of air toxins in 24 hours. Seeing greenery and nurturing its growth reduces stress and create feelings of calm which leads to more productivity and happiness.
But as any nature lover knows, caring for plants indoors can take a toll on floors. The solution? Floors that’ll weather what happens when Mother Nature retreats inside your warm, cozy home during cold winter months.
With its abundance of natural light, this garden room is a perfect place for plants to thrive whether grouped near the French doors or on the wall as a vertical garden. For messy tasks like repotting, watering and drying herbs, Mannington’s Horizon LVS is a good pick. This concrete-look floor is waterproof, won’t trap dirt or other allergens and is easy to clean (most spills clean with gentle soap and water).
In this sunroom, Chart House (part of Mannington’s new ADURA®Max APEX collection) plots a stylish -and sensible- course with its spin on one of the hottest trends in home design—shiplap. This luxury vinyl plank floor is also a good pick for spaces like this sunroom because it’s fade resistant, stain resistant, waterproof, easy-care and made with Mannington’s exclusive ScratchResist® protection that creates a surface so tough it wears away the ridge on a quarter.
Floors made for bringing the outdoors in make it easy to welcome Mother Nature and invite her to stay for a good, long time.
