5 Tips to Help You Incorporate Artificial Plants into Your Home Décor

Posted on
Apr 22, 2023

When it comes to home décor, different people have different tastes. There are two types of arrangements, though, that look good in every room, every home. Books and plants are classic and timeless. They bring joy and add character to the home.

Plants, in particular, are an eternal favourite. However, given the air quality, space constraints, and designs of modern flats and apartments, maintaining real plants may pose a challenge. Besides, with our hectic lifestyles, maintaining plants becomes very difficult. However, this need not deprive you of the pleasure of having a green corner in your home. Artificial plants are the perfect solution to this challenge. 

Why pick artificial plants?

Artificial plants can add a wonderful aesthetic appeal to your home without any fear of adding to the dust or dander. Those who love the way green plants look but are prone to allergies can pick home décor plants as an alternative. These are easy to maintain and need very little maintenance. Artificial flowers and plants also help maintain the decor because they do not grow in size and do not require repotting. There is no fear of spoilage or spills. These are favourites with people who do not have a green thumb but need a green addition to their households.

Home décor tips incorporating artificial plants

  • Size and Space - Pick your artificial plants as carefully as you would pick the best plants for indoor use. Consider the size and lighting of your room and the placement of the plant before you buy them. Artificial plants with large leaves may look good in open spaces, but you may want to pick a small-sized plant for a bedroom or a home office. One way to identify the right plant for your living room or study is to imagine how the plant will look in natural and artificial light.
  • The Right Colours - Pick artificial plants to match the theme and décor of your home. You can opt for bonsai or cacti in small but attractive pots for an earthy look. Artificial ferns can be a great addition to rooms with pastel or cream tones or golden accents. If your bedroom has a floral or paisley accent wall, you may want to add artificial plants with small green flowers on the other side to create balance and harmony. An artificial areca golden palm can be a good addition to a room with an empty corner that draws attention.
  • Mix and Match – To get a green balcony space with a busy look, mix real plants with artificial ones. A bamboo grid or a plant wall with several different plants can have a healthy mix of easy-to-maintain greens with artificial plants. If you have a balcony or a gazebo that receives sunlight on one side, it may be a good idea to use artificial plants on the other end to balance out the placement of greens.
  • Overheads and Overflows – For homes with high ceilings, overhanging flowerpots with artificial creepers, money plants, and flowy vines are a great addition. They take focus away from the empty spaces and distract from shelves or overhead cabinets, making the room look plain. Artificial plants are a great addition in these cases because they do not require sunlight or regular watering, and being on a high perch works rather well.
  • Pop of colour – Not all artificial plants are made equal. It may well be worth investing in a high-quality artificial plant that resembles the natural shades of yellow and green. Plants with small flowers, too, can add a pop of colour to a pastel-themed room or space. Placing a realistic flower arrangement or plant in the foyer or entrance area livens up an otherwise dreary space.

Caring for artificial plants and flowers

  • The most important thing to keep in mind when caring for artificial flowers or plants is understanding the composition of their material. Plastic plants are common but do not look very real. Polyester plants produced from a combination of synthetic and natural materials are among the top home decor items. Use the instruction manual for cleaning or use a microfibre cloth to clean them regularly.
  • Replace old, worn-out artificial plants and flowers, as they tend to make your room look shabby.
  • Keep artificial plants away from direct sunlight or heat sources to avoid fading. Do not use strong detergents to clean them.
  • Invest in high-quality artificial plants. Though they may be slightly more expensive, they provide a realistic look, blend in easily, and offer an excellent aesthetic appeal.

Final Thoughts

Setting up a green corner in your home is one of the best ways to create a colourful and beautiful corner. Artificial plants have been observed to last a long time and are a great investment.
