When it comes to plants, going artificial can be the perfect solution.
Many used to think of artificial plants as being the poor relation to real plants and resembling a sad, plastic-y ‘thing’. Although that was the case many years ago, we now couldn’t disagree more. These days the artificial plants available in stores and online are so lifelike that we need to touch them to make sure they’re not real.
In case you hadn’t caught on previously, we have to admit that we do have a bit of a thing for artificial plants. We just love having some greenery in a room as it adds a touch of colour, some texture and most of all, makes the room look clean and crisp.
Artificial plants are perfect for all types of homes and that is what makes them so great. Real plants rely on being in a home where there is a lot of light and also involve a lot of watering. Instead, artificial plants require no upkeep or maintenace and are perfect for homes where there is little light. Not only this, but they will also last for years and will only need to be dusted. This means they are super ideal, especially for those of you who may be accidental plant killers or lucky enough to go away a lot. Additionally, they also work well for families who have pets as certain plants can be poisonous to them.
By using artificial plants in your home, you don’t need to choose a plant that would usually thrive in your climate, meaning you can go for any type of plant. The choice is simply, all yours.
To save you doing the work of looking through the internet, we have selected a few of our favourite artificial plants.
