Benefits of Live Plants in The Office
When it comes to bringing natural elements into the office, many people buy a few artificial plants and call it a day. However, natural-looking artificial plants can cost a pretty penny – which means that not only are people spending almost the same amount that they would on real plants, but they also miss out on all of the amazing health benefits of real plants.
Whether you bring in a tabletop shrub, a colorful orchid display, or a moss wall, live plants add a unique aesthetic appeal that artificial plants just can't replicate. However, their benefits go far beyond their appearance – below, we'll review a few more benefits live plants can bring to your office.
Fresh Air and Peaceful Surroundings
One of the undeniable benefits of live plants is their ability to purify the air, giving you cleaner and fresher air to breathe. This enhancement of air quality is complemented by the calming presence of greenery, promoting a more focused and relaxed mindset.
In addition to cleaner air, some plants, such as our preserved moss walls, can even act as sound-dampening devices to create a more peaceful atmosphere in your office! These innovative solutions not only uplift the aesthetics but also contribute to a reduction in ambient noise, fostering a serene and productive work environment.
Your Stress-Busting Companions
Technology is an essential part of any office’s daily work. But studies have found that frequent use of screens actually disrupts your circadian rhythm, leading to everything from daytime fatigue, decreased alertness, and memory issues. Believe it or not, plants can help! Plants offer a vibrant reprieve from the screen, and even better, studies have shown that biophilic design (the use of building and interior design, including plants, to promote connectivity with nature) promotes a positive well-being and a regulated circadian rhythm, meaning happier employees and increased productivity.
