4 Reasons To Add Plants To Your Workspaces

At Das Packhaus, we are not only coworking enthusiasts but also plant lovers. However, we have noticed that some people still need convincing. There are several reasons why everyone should consider adding plants to their workspaces, no matter if it’s a home office, a coworking space or a private office. Here are our top reasons why:

  1. Creativity
  2. Improved air quality
  3. Feeling of achievement when your plants are thriving
  4. Noise reduction


We have noticed how different your space can look with a little bit of green, and how different you can feel depending on your environment. Since Das Packhaus is a loft-style coworking space there is a lot of space to decorate, plants have been very helpful with that. No matter how big or small your space actually is, you can make the room look more complete and put together using plants. This is also a great option if you don’t have the budget to buy multiple pieces of furniture but still don’t want the space to feel empty. The answer is PLANTS!

Since we are proper plant collectors, they are also just nice to look at. A green environment can reduce eye strain and give you a pleasant view, helping to reduce stress and fatigue. While plants reduce stress, it leaves more space for creativity. Who wouldn’t agree that a little bit of nature helps you express yourself?

Improved air quality

Plants increase air humidity, which can be particularly beneficial in dry workspaces or offices. So if you are stressed about having an office with stuffy air, plants shall fix it, at least partly. For us at Das Packhaus, this is especially important because having a coworking space in Vienna means a bit more air pollution.

Feeling of achievement

Plantcare can be extremely rewarding, especially when you start from zero. Spending a bit of time during your workday to take care of plants can give you a break from your screen and a fresh feeling of accomplishment. And since your office spaces act as a business card during client visits, you will also feel extremely proud when someone acknowledges your green achievements. You might as well give it a try!

Noise reduction

This is especially important if you have a shared office space or a coworking space. Plants can help to reduce noise and create a more acoustically comfortable working environment. Again, this is particularly crucial in open office environments where noise can be distracting. You might also want to consider this if you have many calls or recordings in your space.

We hope to have encouraged your office green thumb to start developing, good luck!
