Brighten your Reception Area with the Perfect Foliage

In a workplace, the reception area is one of the most important places. This is the first port of call for all your visitors and you want them to feel comfortable and happy when they are waiting there – from good quality reception chairs to good lighting, there are many ways that you can make your reception area appealing. One of the most popular ways is by adding plants – here are some of the best indoor plants for your reception area…

English Ivy – Trailing ivy is a lovely addition to the reception area, giving a softer look to the room. English ivy is easy to care for and doesn’t need large amounts of either light or water to do well. Once it starts to grow longer, you can create your own office art by wrapping the tendrils around the desk legs or a separate wire structure.

Aloe – The humble aloe plant, widely adored for its health benefits, is also a great addition to the reception area. This plant does require a lot of natural light, so if your office is on the darker side this is not for you. But for forgetful folk it is perfect as it doesn’t require much water at all!

Philodendron – This is a great all-rounder – whether your office is light and bright or has hardly any light at all, this plant will happily flourish either way. This gorgeous plant is also a trailing plant, so like the ivy can also be used to break up the harder lines of the desk and can be wrapped around a structure.
