The office is a place where you work and don’t want any distractions while you do so. But the office is also a place where you probably spend a major chunk of your day. When this is the case, you need something to liven things up for you. Indoor plants can make a much needed addition to your office space and can be more beneficial to the health of other employees than you may think. And liven up the atmosphere in the office too.
1. Fresh Breathable Air for Everyone
When you have plants strategically placed inside your office to garner sunlight through the windows, it can help provide the necessary oxygen in the air that your employees need. Oxygen provided by these indoor plants will be supplied to the different parts of your employees’ bodies and allow them to feel fresh and rejuvenated, ready to perform better.
2. Aesthetic Pleasure
It is good to look at pretty things and what better way to liven things up than with indoor plants. They give different shades of green to give an otherwise dull and dreary office space life. They offer a surreal meditative experience that isn’t otherwise possible. All of this means that your employees are happier and healthier than before. Your own office space may give your colleagues and your customers an elevated perception of your space.
3. The Green Impression
An overall greener office space will improve brand perception with customers who do visit your office. It will show them that you are environmentally conscious and care about the environment.
Indoor air quality in modern offices is suffering because it has sealed air. Since the air has nowhere else to go, it remains trapped and the number of pollutants increase. There needs to be a natural way to clear up those pollutants. Indoor plants are the way to clean up your indoor air and remove the harmful pollutants that are affecting the health of your employees.
Playing a role in Reducing the Noise
A modern office can be a very noisy place. An indoor plant may help to dampen and absorb some of that noise and help you get better productivity.
There is an inherent need for people to be close to and associate with nature. This is called Biophillia. In modern office and home environments, there are limited options to be closer to nature and seek affiliations. The limited contact that we have with our fellow employees does not satisfy our innate desire to be close to nature.
There is a way that we can get close to nature, however, even inside a modern corporate office. That is by way of indoor plants. They help you to get closer to nature, fight off feelings of isolation and prevent you from falling ill.
