This Winter, Focus on Your Indoor Office Landscape

Your space is the first impression your employees and customers get from your business, so it is essential to make sure your approach reflects your business values to impress everyone who enters your doors.


Like any garden, your indoor landscape begins with design. When taking this into consideration, you will need to reimagine your space in a whole new way.

Rather than seeing rooms, see spaces. This might sound abstract, but mapping out your space can help you see what you have to work with. Make sure you note natural light sources, high traffic areas, and any other key factors, and let these areas influence your design. Once you’ve accounted for the features of your office, choose a functional focal point (like a desk or check-in area) as this will act as your centerpiece for any visitors.

Remember that your design plan is the underlying structure of your interior landscape, so make sure that every part of your plan has a purpose.

Living Spaces

What better way to make your space come alive than with living plants? Whether it’s a living wall, a built in bed, or even some potted plants scattered throughout the design, live plants bring a natural feel to your landscape.

When making the decision to invest in live plants for your interior landscape, make sure you consider the practical aspects as well as how amazing they will look. Does your space have the light needed for plants to thrive? What maintenance system will you use?

Fortunately, we at John Mini are experts at helping you bring plants into your space, so be sure to contact us for advice about your workplace.

Color and Texture

Once you have determined the design that will give you the look and feel you want and how you will incorporate living plants, you need to bring some color and texture to your vision.

Color and texture are a primary part of any landscape, but when you take your garden indoors, their role goes from important to essential. In an interior space, you have control over every surface and object that your visitors see, so their experience rests entirely on your choices.

Thus, you want to consider your overall decorating goals when choosing the colors and textures of your interior landscape. Going for a stark, modern feel? Try using sleek grasses to compliment your space. Want something more welcoming? Use some bright Kalanchoes to add a pop of color.

No matter what you want your interior office landscape to look like, you can’t afford to be careless with colors and textures.

Winter is the perfect time to transform your office into a memorable landscape designed by John Mini. Our experts take your space and company culture into account while we create a unique project tailored to your needs. Contact us today!
