The exterior of commercial buildings can often be formal and uninviting, even if the businesses within are warm and friendly. This cold exterior can make a business seem outdated, bringing to mind a time when corporate austerity ruled the business world. Times have certainly changed and consumers want to see beautifully modern, green buildings. Completely remodeling your building may not be possible, so instead look to your property maintenance efforts. Enhancing your landscaping endeavors is one of the quickest ways to modernize and renew your building’s appearance.
Green Space Is Welcoming
Nature has a calming effect on the human mind. Placing well-thought-out landscaping around your entryway will have a similar effect on those entering your building. While they may not linger long enough to take in the aroma of the flowers, they’ll still receive a gentle serotonin boost from walking among the foliage. A professional landscaper can help you choose the perfect greenery to make the face of your building beautiful and welcoming.
The front of the building isn’t the only place where you should consider a property maintenance update. A break area with beautifully kept trees and flowers can be a very inviting place to spend downtime. Not only will this tranquil space bring peace to employees, but the possibility of increased social interaction between workers can improve general wellbeing as well.
Indoor Plants Are Helpful
Your indoor space should mirror the beautifully manicured exterior. Consider adding potted plants to your business interior to give employees and visitors the sense of calm that plants induce. This will increase employee health, as spending time around indoor plants can have a positive effect on the brain. Furthermore, they help clean and filter the air, which is, of course, a benefit to everyone’s health.
Property maintenance is about keeping the entire property, both inside and outside, as beautiful as it is functional. Consider bringing in a professional eye to modernize your business with beautiful landscaping.
