We’ve all heard the research about the benefits of natural plant life inside office spaces, but what happens when your office just isn’t suitable for natural plants? Maybe you don’t have the light, or perhaps you simply don’t have the time to take care of plants. Sure, you can rent greenery, but that’s an entirely more complex issue and often with a considerably higher ongoing cost.
That’s exactly why you should really be considering investing in artificial plant life instead. Fake plants can absolutely change your office space, making it a more beautiful, and more inspiring, place to work.
They Require No Maintenance
One of the biggest costs associated with bringing live plants into your office environment is the need to care for them. When your employees are busy maintaining office plants, their efficiency just isn’t as good, and they’re torn from work tasks. Why use your admin staff, or other staff, to keep your plants alive when you could just get fake plants that require no maintenance at all? The most your artificial plant will ever need from you is a dust and a wipe down. They’re very simple, and startlingly easy to look after. How much money have you sunk into real plants that die in office environments? Instead choose artificial and invest in something that will last.
They Can Improve Efficiency and Morale
Studies suggest that plants can reduce the stress levels when they’re present in an office environment. Many people assume that only live plants will provide these benefits, but in some studies benefits were recorded just from having plants present, meaning that artificial plants are just as good. This also links in to a common belief among some mental health experts that human beings have a natural affinity towards greenery, and that it improves focus and efficiency. Obviously, you’ll want high quality fake plants, ones that are difficult to distinguish from the real thing, for better success.
They’re Fantastic For Decorating
Let’s be honest here, plants just add something to a space that other décor items cannot compare with. With fake plants there’s no limitations on where you can place your plants, or how you can use them to complement your décor. Offices become more exciting places with a few stunning artificial plants, which these days look so real visitors and employees will struggle to tell the difference! If you’ve dreamt of having an office space bursting with greenery, but you have no idea where to start, we think that you should start with artificial plants. Not only can they be placed anywhere, regardless of light or watering needs, they also look great.
It’s easy to see why fake plants have found such a welcome home in offices across the world when you look at the benefits for their presence. As artificial greenery develops and evolves, there are even more reasons to add it to your office décor with nobody being the wiser. Now that is a win for everyone.
