Humidifiers can be extremely useful when you're dealing with dry air. Unfortunately, a lot of options can be quite the eyesore, but there are plenty of stylish humidifiers out there that look as good as they are functional.
What are the benefits of using a humidifier?
There's no doubt that using a humidifier can do wonders for your health. According to Eric Neher, chief marketing officer at Canopy, humidifiers can help with your skin, when you're dealing with allergies, or when you're sick.

"When the relative humidity in your space drops below 40%, the dry air will suck moisture from your skin, compromising the skin barrier and increasing the appearance of rough texture, redness, and lines," Neher tells Hunker. "Using a humidifier adds moisture back into the air, giving your skin an extra boost of hydration and increasing the efficacy of your topical products. Increased humidity also helps with cough, congestion, sinus irritation, and allergies, making for easier breathing and better sleep."

"We designed the Canopy Humidifier to fit with the decor of the modern home, with clean lines, rounded edges, and neutral colors," Neher says. "We heard that customers were trying to find a place to hide their humidifiers because of poor aesthetics and we wanted to provide an option that design-conscious folks could feel proud of."
