office flowers

Bright lights, white walls, dark carpet, the distant noise of a radio and the constant sound of the loud typing and clicking. No matter what your area is, offices are often pretty much the same all around the country.  This is the place where we exchange our time and skills for money and where we spend most of our days. People usually tend to personalise their working areas and cubicles with photos or beautiful mugs, but the shared space remains blank and dull. If you want to bring fresh and positive vibes to your workdays, our ultimate tip is: start decorating your office with plants and flowers.

A touch of green in your workspace brings many wellness benefits: they can purify the air, boost productivity, reduce stress and minimise allergy symptoms. Get to know more about the mood-boosting properties of plants and flowers in this post.

Which plant should I choose for the office?

You need plants that can survive in an environment with low sunlight, and that have lower maintenance needs. It’s preferable to pick plants that come from tropical or subtropical parts of the world since the climate in offices tends to be warm or mild. Don’t forget: blooming flowers require a higher level of maintenance, and usually, they last for a shorter period.
