What To Consider When Choosing Flowers For The Office

Fresh flowers are a great addition to any office. No matter the size, an office will thrive with the addition of colourful flowers to brighten up the working space. Not only will your workspace look brighter but employees with benefit from fresh flowers as well.

There are a number of benefits that employees get from having fresh flowers in the workplace. These include improved concentration, creativity and overall mental health. There are, however, a few things to consider before you jump in and choose your fresh flowers.

  1. Where Will the Flowers be Displayed
    Before you think about what flowers you want, you need to think about where you will display your fresh flowers. This is a big factor in the decision process as you want the flowers to fit into the space, not stick out like a sore thumb. If you are looking for a boardroom table arrangement then consider smaller bouquets or longer runner style arrangements that still allow for easy conversation. Alternately, if you are looking for an arrangement that will sit in your entrance way then you may want to look for a taller more vibrant display.

  2. How Long Do You Want The Flowers
    Longevity is another key point that you need to think about. If your flower arrangement is only being used for an event or celebration date then you can take advantage of pretty much any flower available from your florist. However, if you are looking for a longer-lasting display, speak to your florist about options available for longer-lasting blooms. Carnations and Chrysanthemums are a great addition to any long-lasting fresh flower arrangement.

  3. Colour Scheme
    Does your office or workplace have a colour scheme? Consider this as part of your flower arrangement. Your fresh blooms can work harmoniously with surrounding settings and complement your working area. Looking for something more subtle? No worries! Working with a reputable florist will ensure that your colour scheme is as subtle or as vibrant as you like.

  4. Consider Employees
    Hang on, how can flowers affect employees? For some people fresh flowers are beautiful to look at, for others fresh flowers can be an allergy nightmare. Consider your employees before you invest in office blooms. If you do have any employees that suffer from allergies and you still want to invest in a stunning flower arrangement then speak to your florist. They will be able to advise what blooms are hypoallergenic.

  5. Care and Maintenance
    Before your new blooms arrive in your office make sure you appoint an employee to care and look after the fresh flowers. While it’s easy to set and forget, fresh flowers need a little bit of TLC to keep them looking their best. Freshwater and removal of any old foliage will ensure your blooms are kept looking their best for as long as possible. You can learn more about looking after fresh flowers here.
