Indoor Plants - Health, Therapeutic & Work Productivity Benefits
Indoor plants can provide your workplace with a wide variety of cost-cutting, health-boosting benefits including:
Interior plantscaping adds aesthetic and other value to the interior and exterior of any premises. Utilized indoors plants can add colour, emphasis a building's architectural features, direct traffic flow within large open areas as well as moisten and freshen internal building air.
A well-designed plantscape creates an area in which employees or patrons can enjoy their surroundings.
Plants have many qualities that make them invaluable in addressing environmental conditions. They have the potential to define space, provide privacy, supply shade, control glare, block wind, improve air-conditioners, absorb sound, and curtail corrosion. Perhaps the most importantly, plants absorb noxious gases, act as receptors of dust and dirt particles & cleanse the air of impurities while consuming carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
Office Productivity Improvements
Many office inclusions release particles that affect air quality - including printers, copiers, computer screens and upholstery. Properly installed plants indoors reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide and other potentially harmful substances such as formaldehyde and benzene. Plants minimise contamination - leaving the air you breathe fresher.
Environments with healthy attractive indoor plants are more aesthetically pleasing. Such environments have been shown to reduce stress, headaches and fatigue.
Research shows that an adequate installation of indoor plants can deliver bottom-line benefits and are a solid return on investment. Interior plants can reduce airborne moulds in sealed office environments by as much as 50%, significantly lower workplace stress, decrease fatigue, and enhance productivity by as much as 12%. The proper selection and placement of plants can also lower heating and cooling costs by as much as 20%.
All of these benefits increase your bottom-line.
