Your home will never look better than when it is decorated by artificial plants.
On the market today you will be able to find all kinds of different varieties.
Plants with flowers, all types of ivy looking plants, and hanging basket plants are just a few that you will be able to purchase for your home. Artificial plants will look so real that your friends and family will want to touch and smell them.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Artificial plants are virtually maintenance free. The only thing you have to do for them is dust them every now and then. Just imagine never having a potted plant fall over again with water and mud going all over your carpet. Wouldn’t that be great?
Plants that are artificial do not drop dead leaves all over your floor for you to sweep up. They will not need to be set in the correct sunlight so you can place any kind of plant anywhere you want to.
Another advantage is that you will never have to worry about over watering them, because they require no water. No pruning is ever needed, and they never lose their shape.
There are a few disadvantages though with artificial plants. Over exposure to the sun can fade them. You will not want to set them in strong sunlight for long periods of time.
The only other drawback of artificial plants is that they don’t release oxygen into your home. All and all, artificial plants are a great way to decorate your home.
Outside Your Home
Flower blooming, artificial plants that you can hang in beautiful chain baskets, will look very stylish on your porch. You can also use these plants and flowers in flower boxes, or on an outside trellis for a fantastic look.
In the winter artificial flowers and plants can also brighten up your patio, and bring color to your home on a dreary day.
Uses of Plants and Flowers
Decorating your whole house with artificial plants and flowers will make it seem like a different world. Potted plants and flower arrangements in your living room will give you the feel of walking in the woods on a spring day.
Other rooms in your home will also benefit from artificial plants. To give your bathroom that lush jungle look, you will want to decorate it with dark green artificial foliage.
Your bedroom can take on the look of a rose garden with carefully placed artificial roses and greenery throughout.
Ivy hanging across the top of your windows in your kitchen, twirled on your wine rack, and entwined amongst grapes on your wall, can give your kitchen the look of an old wine cellar, filled with vines.
Whatever home decorating scheme you choose with your artificial plants, it will surely enhance your home.
