Plants are transformative to corporate, retail, and health care spaces. We all know how much more pleasurable and uplifting a shopping trip can be when plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs are a part of the picture, for example, or how much more reassuring a doctor’s visit is if there’s a lovely display of plants to calm us in the waiting room. Plants are more than just attractive pieces of decor that bring life to a room; they’re practical, functional additions that enhance the environment in other ways.
In this case, an entryway area reveals a cascade of green, a living wall focal point that signals the transition from one space to another. An arrangement of plants in a lobby, waiting room, or otherwise transitional space can provide a focal point that gives customers or guests something to look at while they wait. It can also help guide them through a space or highlight an area where they should sit and relax. In fact, plants, shrubs, and trees often operate as frames and screens too, especially in a large corporate or retail area like a mall. They can hide blank or unused spaces from view or offer privacy. And because they’re also sound absorbers, they can reduce the din in a large area such as a shopping mall, making for a more pleasant, more intimate experience.
Malls, airports, office parks, and the like can benefit from the visual and auditory benefits a plant or tree grouping can provide, but these spaces receive all the health benefits, too. As proven stress-reducers, plants can help create an atmosphere of serenity and put people in a restful state, but that’s not all they’re up to. They also clean and recycle the air, removing pollutants and producing more co2. Where there are calmer, happier people, there are people who are enjoying where they are, a crucial consideration for commercial and retail interests. Studies show that plants increase the perceived value of a place and contribute to its sense of vibrancy and activity.
