Biophilic interior design can be accomplished with just some indoor plants. If your budget doesn't allow a full remodel you can integrate plants and stained wooden decor. The principles of biophilic design don't call for only structural integrations.
Having large doors and windows that open right up to your yard gives your living space a nice visual aesthetic. Fresh air flowing through your home on a spring day will improve your mood but also benefit your wellbeing. Just because you are indoors doesn't mean you can't have a little taste of the outdoors as well.
Fire is the warmest of the biophilic elements. You can incorporate this element into your design through a fireplace, western-facing windows for warmth, or through warm colors like oranges or reds. Warm spaces (and I mean that literally) can have a positive impact on humans. For example, warmth increases blood flow which can boost your immune system and lower your heart rate.
A nice tub to soak in never hurt anybody! Like we mentioned before, warmth can benefit circulation. Soaking after a long day at work can relax your body and ease stress. Trust me when I tell you, a soaking tub will absolutely improve your wellbeing.
