There are a lot of moving pieces and parts when it comes to designing and decorating office spaces. From furniture to carpet, to paint colors, lighting and plants, attention to detail is important.
After selecting the perfect plants to bring a piece of the great outdoors inside, make sure you don’t skimp on selecting the proper plant containers. You want to select containers that will not only look good but will allow your plants to grow and thrive.
Plants containers not only provide a home for your plants, they complete your décor and help define the personality of your office. Your employees will thrive and your customers will take notice when you select the right container.
Here is the Raimondi Horticultural Group’s list of seven helpful tips to select the right plant containers for your office:
- Spend the time to find the right container; don’t settle for a dime a dozen planter.
- Pick the right size. The planter should be several inches larger than the pot.
- Coordinate and complement color schemes in your offices. Creamy, rich colors for a traditional look. Or, bright colors to make work places pop.
- Stagger the heights of plants vs. bunching them into a corner.
- Creatively use plants to separate work spaces.
- Consider the lifespan and how high or full the plant will grow before selecting a plant.
- If you have questions, consult with an interior landscape professional – it can save you time and money.
