Outdoor planters offer the opportunity to breathe life into office entrance ways, receptions and the office itself. They help make the space inviting and visually pleasing to the eye.
You may see restaurants and coffee shops lined with outdoor planters. They’re typically filled with luscious green plants, trees or beautiful flowers. We can’t deny how this small touch can elevate our expectations of a business as we enter or sit down.
Plants are becoming increasingly popular inside the office too. Research suggests that plants can boost employee morale and productivity.
Research also says plants improve the overall health of employees.
Introducing plants into your office, or even your home office, can be a fun and fulfilling experience. You can also get creative by using a wide range of small planters to place plants around the office.
Don’t be afraid to use large outdoor planters inside the office. They can drastically uplift the interior if you use big, visually stunning plants. Fiddle-leaf fig, rubber plant, Africa fig, Ficus Alii and the majesty palm are all great choices. Each does well with minimal sunlight, water and general maintenance.
