Plants for offices
Work. Life. Balance
Plants bring homes to life and they can also bring life to your office. Whether it's a little Bali for your desk or a Big Ken for reception, plants look great, make the air cleaner and create a calmer atmosphere.

Why are plants important in an office?
Plants make people happier, healthier and more productive.
Plants can have a massive impact on how a space feels. Putting 5 medium-sized plants in a 20m² space will absorb 75% of airborne pollutants.
And, by promoting relaxation and focus, studies have shown that the same number of plants will result in a 60% improvement to one’s mental wellbeing.
Patch was brilliant at helping us find the perfect plants for our stores.
Patch suggested some great ideas that have creatively complemented the design without getting in the way of customers using the space.
The plants look awesome – thank you!

Our top tips for office greening
Start with the natural light. Switch off the lights during the day (if possible) to get a measure for how the sunlight fills the room, as indoor plants can't feed off light bulbs. All plants need some natural sunlight to survive, but each one has different needs — so check out the product page description for each plant before you checkout.
2. Picking the plants
Mixing plants by height, volume and texture will make your space look fresh. But keep in mind that the fewer varieties you choose, the easier it will be to look after them. For a fail-safe selection, check out our Best Office Plants collection above.
3. Styling your plants
Look for surfaces that feel a bit sparse and could use some livening up, or frame doorways by placing tall plants on either side. If floor space is at a premium, keep your chin up: you can always use a hanging planter and a trailing plant that’ll look good at a great height.
This is the most crucial bit: do everything in your power to keep your plants away from those sneaky air conditioning units, radiators and winter drafts — dramatic temperature changes tend to upset them.
