Offices can often be dreary and demotivating. A bit of colour and greenery from artificial flower hanging baskets would rarely go amiss, both to enliven the sight of the area and the attitudes of the people working within it. Yet offices can be big places, with lots of spots to choose from. Each of these has its merits.
Within every office, there are often countless individual desks where employees toil away for hours most days of the week. Companies like Powerhouse Group optimise these spaces to ensure productivity. The design of these desks will likely affect the practicality of having artificial hanging baskets at them – for instance, if they’re low-build structures with no suspended platforms above head-height, then there’s nowhere to hang anything from. However, if such platforms exist then that means you can add some much-needed colour to your desk, providing something pleasant to look at whenever the workload begins to get stressful.
On a more collective basis, most offices have some sort of kitchen area where coffees and teas are made, lunches eaten and gossip passed. Such zones or rooms are often intended as a chilled out location where employees can wind down, so the addition of artificial flower hanging baskets only adds to the already upbeat atmosphere. Yet aside from their merits, neither of these options are as visible as suspending a basket from the windowsill, either on the inside or outside of the glass. Such a location is often on show for the entire office to see and, if many baskets are lined up one after another
The benefits of mixing up the sizes
As with colours and types of flowers, it is always preferable to have a range of basket sizes. It mixes things up and breaks up any overwhelming sense of uniformity to provide a more appealing and diverse view. And on top of that, each type of basket size has its own benefits, whether in a collection or on its own.
Most of the time such artificial hanging baskets come in either small, medium or large sizes, with each basket ranging from and around 30cm to 40cm. Small and medium-sized silk piece options are better suited to interior assemblages, as they provide a bit of colour and greenery without taking up so much room as to be inconvenient. This is especially true of small baskets in close-knit quarters such as bathrooms, office desks and sheds. When it comes to outdoor, wide gardens however, it is worth mixing things up with a few of the larger varieties as too many smaller ones can appear as if the space isn’t being best used.
Large artificial flower hanging baskets also expand the amount of colour on show, which can boost your mood while sitting outside on a sunny day. When decorating larger spaces – for instance, a warehouse or centre during an exhibition or other big event – then the broader the basket, the more visible it will be the passers-by. The height at which you hang your flowers will also make a difference: whereas a tall doorway may require a bigger basket in order to make the flowers clearly visible, a short porch frame at head-height is easy to see and as such could make do with just a medium-sized option.
