Help Make The Right First Impression

26 Jan 2015

Plants help make a great first impressionFirst impressions are everything, which is why it is essential that you make the right one. As a business, you want your property to look inviting, and aesthetically appealing to ensure that you are attracting your targeted clientele. Office spaces can often be lacking in personality and character which can make them incredibly unappealing for potential clients, as well as current staff. Luckily we here at Benholm have come up with some fantastic ways to make that first impression count.


You may think this is obvious, but having a clean and tidy building can instantly put someone at ease. If a reception area looks cluttered and messy, it can often make people think that the company is unorganised. Make sure that surfaces are clean, floors are vacuumed or mopped regularly, the reception area is gleaming and you should also encourage your staff to work to a clear desk policy.


No one wants to walk through a place that looks sterile and uninviting, you should add a splash of colour and life into the place to give it some character. This can be done easily by adding some plants into the area. This can be anything from a small flower arrangement on the front desk, to a much larger scale live plant display. Not only can this act as a focal point, it can also improve indoor air quality. Discover how by clicking here.


The atmosphere of a workplace is extremely important when it comes to first impressions. You want to make sure that everyone is extremely welcoming and professional, as this can have a detrimental effect on the company as a whole. You should ensure that the first point of contact that they have, for example the receptionist welcomes them with a smile as this is sure to put them at ease.

By ensuring that these simple yet effective techniques are used, you can be sure to make a brilliant first impression on any potential or existing clients. Here at Benholm we offer a wide range of services including interior and exterior plant displays, landscaping, floristry, water fountains and much more.
