And why are they worth including in your commercial space? Incorporating plants into the workplace can have numerous positive impacts on the health and productivity of employees.
From improving air quality to reducing stress and increasing creativity, the many benefits of plants in the workplace are well-documented.

Office plants can help with sensory zoning
So, what is sensory zoning? Sensory zoning involves creating designated areas within a workspace that cater to various sensory needs. These areas provide different sensory experiences for workers. Changes like noise level, lighting and temperature can be controlled to create zones that suit individuals, recognising their different needs.
The ultimate goal of sensory zoning is to create an inclusive and accommodating work environment for employees with different sensory needs. So how can plants help?
Plants can help control temperature, sound and how much light and shade gets into a workspace. Interior planting plays a massive part in interior zoning, the next biggest work trend since working from home really began to take off in 2020.
Interior plants can even help your workers who work flexibly
Since the beginning of 2020, the way we work has changed forever. Many offices have switched to hybrid working, and have upgraded their offices to ensure employees are comfortable when working both from home and the office.
Ensuring a smooth transition between office and home is crucial, and plants are a key part of this, too. A 2010 study by the new University of Technology, Sydney, found significant reductions in stress among workers when plants were introduced to their workspace.
A well-planted office brings employees together
With four different generations working together in the office, creating breakout spaces to encourage collaborative working is more important than ever. Plants can create inviting spaces and encourage creativity.
Indoor plants, trees, and flowers can help to increase creativity in the workplace, according to research from Texas A&M University. These types of plants have been shown to boost creativity by 15% or more in office environments.
From keeping staff healthy and happy to encouraging higher attendance in the office, plants play a major role in the office of the future. We have over 30 years of experience creating inspiring office environments and can improve any space with the power of plants.
