Imagine an office and in your mind’s eye you’ll likely see an image of computers, office chairs, white walls and office partitions. Delve a little deeper into that image, and you might see that it’s peppered with greenery. There are lots of reasons why you find greenery and flowers in workplaces:
Research has been done that suggests that greenery and floral arrangements in a workplace can go a long way to improve worker morale. The reasoning is that if such an unnatural, “manmade” environment like an office is tempered by flowers or greenery then this becalms workers, making them happier and more in-tune with their surroundings.
Flowers and greenery in a workplace doesn’t have to be the real thing. Whilst there are some studies that suggest that real greenery helps to oxygenate the environment which too can have a calming effect, much of the positive effect of blooms in the workplace is down to their aesthetics.
The aesthetics of artificial flowers and artificial greenery is as close as you can get to the real deal. This makes them great for improving the aesthetic quality of offices, not only for employees but also for visitors to offices or workplaces.
Floral arrangements can be situated anywhere and everywhere, and they don’t require constant upkeep like real flowers. It’s funny, that in such an artificial setting as an office or workplace an artificial flower can give the environment that natural touch it needs, missing only the heady perfume.
