Using plants to create a welcoming office space
Indoor office planting creates an environment that people want to be in. Here we explore why they are so important to positive, healthy workspaces.
How people feel when they enter are in your office is what they will remember about your company. Be it clients, suppliers or staff, creating that great impression from the outset is invaluable. An indoor office planting scheme is a straightforward and cost-effective way to achieve just that.
Plants have a transformative effect on corporate interiors – they influence the whole mood and feel of the space. Here we have explored some ways that plants will enhance your working environment, making it a welcoming, engaging place to be in.
Bring the outdoors in with indoor office planting
Being amid nature has a hugely positive impact on humans, which has driven the recent ‘bringing the outdoors in’ trend of office design. We can all relate to feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after spending time outdoors. Office plants enable these green, summer atmospheres to be created throughout the whole year, resulting in a far more engaging and productive workspace. Entering an office with a creative planting scheme is warm, inviting experience for visitors too.
You can breathe easy with plants around
Everyone loves being in spaces that make them feel fresh. This is even more the case in London, where the air is often anything but!
Indoor office planting not only absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, but also absorbs other irritants that negatively impact humans. These air-borne particles, such as dust, pollen and bacteria, are broken down by plants and used for their own growth. The ability to absorb irritants from the atmosphere leaves your offices feeling fresh and healthy, contributing to happier, high-performing staff. The alternative ‘sick building syndrome‘ effect is what you want to avoid!
