Using plants and greenery in working environments has been proven to increase productivity in the workplace. Now, you may be thinking that it doesn’t apply to artificial plants as they don’t improve the air quality, however you’d be wrong, many of the benefits are related to perception.
Adding plants to your office make the environment more interesting, colourful and relaxing which can help your employees focus. When your employees are more focused and calm in the office it can reduce stress and increase concentration. This is turn can increase productivity by up to 15%, increase employee wellbeing and reduce sickness and absentism.
Artificial office plants offer a number of extra benefits over their natural counterparts. They’re incredibly low maintenance. Once they're potted up and in place, they require no watering, pruning or training for their entire lifespan saving your employees time or the cost of a gardener. They also won’t need to be replaced each year or seasonally.
After factors such as ongoing maintenance, pots and plant feed are taken into account, artificial plants can cost substantially less over the course of their lifespan, providing a higher return on investment. The difference in cost becomes even more significant when comparing the cost of artificial plants verses natural plant hire and / or care companies.
Allergies like hay fever are incredibly common in the UK and lead to itchy eyes, stuffy noses and fuzzy headaches. Faux office plants are ideal as they bring many of the benefits of having greenery in the workplace but without this potential productivity-killing drawback.
So, we've brought you round to our way of thinking and you've decided that artificial is the way to go. We’ve put together a few simple inspiring ideas for using artificial plants around your office.
Green screens and nearly natural partitions are a great way to split open plan offices. Replace the boring blue and grey dividers with artificial hedging or use a long slim trough and fill with tall greenery like bamboo and grass plants to create a stunning natural looking divider.
Feature walls are a classic way to make a first impression. Create your very own green wall with artificial living wall foliage mats. They clip together seamlessly allowing you to cover a large space with ease. Simply attach the matting to a wooden frame and screw fix to the wall in question.
Hard to reach areas can be a pain. Try using window boxes or trailing foliage like ivy as an ongoing hassle free solution for adding interest for those hard to reach areas.
Don’t forget about the outside of your premises. Spiral topiary trees offer a stunning way to frame the entrance to the building or car park. You can also add instant low maintenance colour with artificial window boxes and hanging baskets.
