Work consumes a good portion of our everyday lives. For most, nearly 40 hours per week is spent working inside. Inside an apartment, office building, retail store, theater or something enclosed. If you add in the hours spent sleeping, we spend more than a majority of our lives indoors. When we’re not inside, we’re doing […]
The impacts of interior landscape design are becoming increasingly known and justified, especially within professional and corporate spaces. Increased productivity, reduced stress, and overall better health are only some of the benefits of plants indoors. Despite understanding the benefits, many businesses and individuals don’t know where to get started in interior landscape design for their spaces, and even less, who to trust. Let’s take a look at the top three features to look for in an interior landscape design company.
1. Look for Experienced Landscape Design Specialists
On the surface, interior and exterior landscape design may not seem all that different, but to the experts, they are entirely different worlds. To get the best quality design, you’ll need more than a one-size-fits-all company — you’ll need experienced professionals that strategically specialize in interior and biophilic landscape design. Using specialized professionals will ensure that you don’t receive the same generic treatment used in every indoor space. Every individual room and every corner are different, and a specialized interior landscape design company will rightly adjust their techniques and recommendations based on the intricacies and nuances of each space.
2. Look for Experts in Biophilic Design
Biophilic design taps into our human appreciation and connection to nature. The interior landscape design company that will be most effective in your indoor spaces will be those with extensive experience in biophilic design. And with the pressures of productivity, especially in corporate spaces, generic indoor plant treatment is no longer enough. Based on the many physical qualities of a space, the number of individuals typically in the space, and the kind of activities those individuals perform, a biophilic design expert will be able to recommend and install, for example, a combination of green walls, commercial plants, succulents, or moss art to benefit the specificities of the space.
3. Look for Landscape Design Educators, Not Just Executors
The interior and biophilic landscape design space is an evolutionary one, with new techniques and studies constantly advancing. With this in mind, you’ll want interior landscape design professionals that are frequently involved in the training and education of biophilic study and are refreshed on industry techniques and expertise.
