Join the crowd and create a low-maintenance, easy lifestyle with lifelike artificial plants in your living areas, bedrooms, bathrooms and even your alfresco!
Whether you call them faux plants, plastic plants or fake plants, artificial plants are not real. Artificial plants are made from a range of materials including silk, polyester, nylon and plastics such as polythene. They are modelled on specific plant types and crafted to closely replicate the look of real plants such as monsteras, ferns, succulents, dracaenas, palms and more.
Faux plants are affordable homewares accessories. Any nook in the home can go from drab to fab with the addition of a faux plant, a piece of wall art, a stylish rug and a lamp. Voila! You’ve created that glossy magazine look already!
Artificial plants look perfect all year round. They don’t drop leaves or flowers and they don’t wilt or turn brown. The cat doesn’t pee in them and the dirt doesn’t end up on the floor. They need no watering, fertilising, pruning or repotting. The amount of sunlight in the room is always perfect for faux plants! And best of all? Artificial plants don’t die.
Using artificial plants indoors is the perfect way to bring the outdoors in without the mess or the maintenance.
Available in a wide range of sizes and styles, popular faux plants are sprouting in rooms all over Australian homes, from fake succulents on the kitchen windowsill to fake palm trees in open plan living spaces, decks and alfrescos!
A touch of greenery in the bathroom can brighten a cold space, adding a soft touch to hard surfaces. Depending on the space available, artificial succulents such as the sweet green Sedum look cute on the vanity or bathtub, while trailing plants like fake ivy or fluffy faux plants like Silverfalls work well too.
Add stylish sophistication to your living areas by using quality artificial plants indoors. Place large artificial plants in corners or beside big furniture items and add cute little faux plants alongside vases on surfaces such as:
In spacious living areas a combination of artificial trees and small trailing plants or fake hanging plants fill those empty nooks and crannies high and low. Pop a dangly string of succulent bean leaf so that it trails down a bookcase or down the side of a tall piece of living room or dining room furniture.
Kitchens, hallways, home offices and bedrooms also take on a fresh look when you include artificial plants alongside your decorative homewares items.
Cleaning is about the only maintenance your artificial plants need but even that is still easy! There are a number of ways to clean an artificial plant:
If you have artificial flowers such as artificial orchids or artificial sunflowers check if they are made from plastics or silk before cleaning - gently wiping them with a damp cloth might be the best method for your more fragile artificial plants.
