Tips & Tricks for Using Fake Plants in Your Home

We know what you’ve heard about fake plants. We’ve heard it all too. We want to bust these myths by showing you the best ways to use them in your home. 

Silk plants can offer eternal beauty. Let’s discuss some of the great things you can do with silk plants including benefits and the best plants to get you started. 

Benefits of Using Faux Plants

Artificial plants have many uses and benefits. Here are six key benefits to having faux plants in your home:

  • They are great for allergy sufferers.
  • They aren’t poisonous to pets that have a tendency to chew plants.
  • They don’t need sunlight so you can use them in darker rooms.
  • They are great for people who can’t keep real plants alive.
  • They are easy to travel with if you move far away.
  • They last forever!

Here are five awesome tips to help you integrate fake plants into your home decor.

Choose realistic plants

There’s no point in having fake plants if they look fake. Faux plants can cheapen your home if you don’t purchase the right ones. Realistic plants may be on the pricey side, but they are worth it because they last forever. 

Clean them regularly

Dust will settle on your faux plants. Clean them once or twice a month to ensure they stay beautiful and realistic. 

Dress them up with nice plant pots

Plant pots can truly make your faux plants look more elegant. At Bloomr, we have an awesome selection of plant pots to complement your luxury silk plants. 

Consider where to place the plants

Find the perfect spot for your plants. Have an empty corner in your home? Add a large palm to fill the space. Missing something on your bathroom counter? Add a gorgeous fern. The placement of your plants can make a difference in the look and feel of your space. 

Mix it up

You don’t have to have either fake plants or real plants. Add a mix of real flowers and plants with your fake flowers and plants.
