The flowers improve the mood, the creativity and the general well-being in a work environment.

Having silk flowers in the workplace will add a dash of colour to improve the mood of workers, and increase their productivity. Flowers also make the bad days seem less dreary and brighten up the atmosphere of the entire office floor.
Research suggests that brightly coloured decorative displays, like art and flowers, increase creativity in people. A creative mind can come up with new and innovative ways to solve problems and improve existing systems. Both men and women respond positively to flowers in the office. It was found that both sexes were able to generate up to 30% more ideas in an office populated with flowers as opposed to a dull and drab office space.

It has been shown that exposure to aesthetically pleasing flower arrangements can drastically reduce stress in an office environment.

People work better in an office environment that is happier, and lower stress levels are conducive to better work.

Why Silk Flowers make Sense in an Office
Artificial flowers are often stigmatised as inferior and cheap, but SilkSense is turning the tide on that perspective. With multiple benefits over traditional real flowers, and just as much beauty, the artificial flower arrangements provided by SilkSense are the better option for a multitude of reasons.
Flowers are expensive, and having year round fresh flowers will be extremely prohibitive in cost. With SilkSense, that cost is drastically reduced as the flowers are rented out. As they are artificial flowers, they won’t wilt and die, which means as long as they aren’t damaged their lifespan is effectively indefinite. They are in bloom all year. So, you need not pay exorbitant import costs in the off-season to get that splash of colour you desire. They need no watering and no maintenance besides an occasionally dusting, and work 24/7. The high-quality silk used in their creation remains bright and vivid for years.
Unlike real flowers, which release pollen and attract bugs, silk flowers are completely hypo-allergenic. This means that they won’t trigger any form of allergic reaction in the people who are in their vicinity. This makes them ideal for shared workplaces where you don’t want someone to be coughing, sneezing and feeling uncomfortable while working. They also make for great decorative pieces in places where you can’t risk allergic reactions, like in a doctor’s office. An artificial flower arrangement adds that dash of colour where there would otherwise be a dull and dreary area because of the necessity to keep it hygienic.
An office is a place where work gets done. By sending out someone to buy flowers or even getting florists into the office to set up an arrangement you are cutting into valuable working time. SilkSense holds customer service at the core of its brand and this is reflected in the way we deal with orders. Each order is made with the customers’ unique needs in mind. It is delivered already professionally arranged in a glass, ceramic or metal vase.
Why a Franchise-Like Distributorship Is the Way to Go

A dash of colour and an aesthetic focal spot are must haves in any office to break the monotony and reinvigorate the bland space – and silk flowers are the perfect items to achieve just that.
