Limited lighting and always remembering to water a living plants can be a challenge. For the interior plant lover these problems are resolved immediately with an artificial planting – all the charm, non of the chore! Whatever your space, style or budget we will work with you to find the artificial planting solution for you.
When thinking about artificial plants for the kitchen, you might want to bear in mind what space you have free. For kitchens with little surface space free, looking to the window ledges is a good place to start. Opting for some extra small plants with tighter structures will ensure you get a touch of green without dominating the window. Keeping the natural light source as uninhibited as possible is also a key benefit of more petite artificial plants. If there is a larger space like a breakfast bar or a kitchen table, this is ideal for a more leafy plant. Similarly, an artificial lemon tree will introduce some colour with its fruit’s vibrant yellow.
The purpose of a hallway is to provide a sense of welcome, but it can also be quite difficult to populate due to its limited function. The hallway is an ideal place to put a tall artificial plant. Doing so breaks up what can sometimes be an otherwise empty space. A perfect artificial plant for the hallway is a palm tree – such as an Areca or a Dracaena. Some hallways do contain furniture, so it might also be worth thinking about a statement artificial floral arrangement to co-ordinate with the room’s colour scheme.
Bedrooms are spaces that support many different kinds of artificial plants, so getting creative is a certain route to success. High surfaces like the tops of wardrobes and shelves are a great place to position some trailing plants like ivy or eucalyptus, which draw the eye and elongate the space. Sideboards and drawer tops also deserve some attention. Broad plants are a great choice to add to the dimension, as they are not too tall. Don’t forget about the window ledges, either, where a gathering of smaller plants can really add to a maximalist look.
The bathroom is possibly the most humid room in the house. As such, you might want to think about plants that thrive in those conditions. Plants like Sansevieria, Palm Grass, and Dracaena will all aid in helping your bathroom look like a lush, tropical paradise. Placing these around bathtubs will provide a natural frame around most bathrooms’ largest features. Placing smaller plants like Taro and Zebra on ledges and window frames are also a nice way to add some greenery to your bathroom if space is at a premium. For a creative flourish, add some Ivy or Monstera garland around your mirror to accentuate another main feature of most bathrooms.
When thinking about decorating your office space with artificial greenery, the main focus will be on the desk. Extra small plants are perfect for sitting on top of the surface of your desk alongside photos, desk tidies, and computers without taking up too much space. Bookcases regularly feature in home offices, so it's a good idea to think about how to use these surfaces. In these areas, placing some hanging or trailing plants will help add some character to your space and prevent it from looking too formal or austere. Some simple, minimalist grass plants are also great if broadleaf plants are too attention-grabbing.
The living room is a place where you can really express yourself with the kinds of artificial greenery you display. With the additional surfaces, you can combine a mix of floor and table-top plants. When thinking of the floor space, opt for large plants like Areca palm, ferns and bamboo variations. As well as large floor plants, medium-sized options like potted palm grass are ideal for sideboards and coffee tables. Zebra plants and potted Fig plants are a great consideration for smaller areas like window ledges and shelving.
The porch area of your living space is a halfway house – not quite outside and not quite considered one of the living areas. With this in mind, opt for smaller trees like variegated Ficus plants and miniature artificial Willow trees. Each of these will easily slot into the edges of a porch whilst taking up vertical space rather than horizontal. Conservatories are a great opportunity to introduce some fruit or herb plants – such as rosemary or a lemon plant. Another consideration for these spaces is artificial outdoor topiary and Buxus shrubs, particularly in the case of the porch. Explore what more we have to offer in terms of outdoor plants.
