Advantages Of Decorating With Artificial Flowers

  • Written by Koch & Co

Adding some flowers and greenery to your space can have a truly transformative effect, not just by brightening up the room but even improving your mood. However, buying fresh flowers isn’t always feasible and may not necessarily be the best option for you. Luckily, there are some incredible faux flowers out there that look just like the real thing, and they even come with their own set of benefits that you may not have considered.

1. Longer Lasting

One of the biggest perks of faux flowers is that they have the potential to last for years. Even the freshest flowers will only last you a maximum of 12 days. Artificial flowers and plants however don’t wilt and discolour, nor do they have that stale smell that real flowers can have when they’re on their last legs. If you take care of artificial flowers, they will keep looking beautiful even years down the line.

2. Put Them Anywhere

Flowers and plants can be a fantastic way to fill up awkward spaces, but often these areas don’t have the best conditions for real flowers to thrive. Whether it’s too warm, for instance right by a heater, or in a spot that gets little natural light, often even the hardiest plants won’t be able to survive. Faux flowers, on the other hand, will look great just about anywhere, offering a great solution for turning unused spaces into beautiful corners of your home.

3. Available All Year Round

Everyone has certain flowers and greenery that they like the most, but some species can be hard to get a hold of at certain times of the year. Take the sunflower, for example, a bold, bright flower that is known as a symbol of joy. If you want to decorate with the real thing, you can only get hold of them between January and March. Buy an artificial sunflower instead, and you can enjoy it all year round.

4. Budget-Friendly

A fresh cut bouquet may look beautiful, but there’s no denying that good flowers don’t come cheap, and the cost of replenishing your arrangements soon adds up. Buy an artificial flower bouquet, however, and it’s an affordable one-off purchase that will brighten up your space. Koch & Co have a huge range of artificial flowers that can change the look of your home for just a fraction of the price.

5. Low Maintenance

Different kinds of flowers and greenery all have very different needs, from watering schedules to fertiliser to preventing pests and diseases. There’s a lot to learn, and with our busy lifestyles, we don’t always have the time to take the best care of our plants. Faux flowers not only look just as good as the real thing, but they need basically no looking after. Just a quick once over with a duster when you’re doing your weekly clean and they will look good as new.

6. Pet-Friendly

Some of the most beautiful varieties of flowers and greenery are toxic to animals, and some of them are even deadly. Lilies, for example, can cause severe kidney damage in cats, while English ivy can have similarly devastating effects on other animals. With artificial plants, you can still enjoy your favourite home decor looks without having to worry about any consequences for your pets.

7. Hypoallergenic

If you suffer from hay fever during the summer months, then fresh flowers and greenery are probably the last things you want in your home. However, there’s no reason you need to miss out! Faux flowers allow you to fill your home with whatever plants you like without having to suffer, getting all the aesthetic benefits without the sneezing fits and itchy eyes that accompany the real thing.

8. More Creativity

If you want to keep real plants and flowers looking their best, then you’re fairly limited in how you can use them. As they don’t need water, faux flowers can make for hugely versatile decor. You can create a flower garland or backdrop, make your own wreath, or display them in something unconventional like a basket, lantern or upcycled box. The only limit is your creativity! Plus, when you want to move on to your next project, you can simply reuse your existing faux flowers if you don’t want to splurge on something new.

9. Something To Suit Any Interior

When dealing with fresh plants and flowers, it’s not always easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. The beauty of faux flowers is that they’re available in almost any colour and style you can imagine, meaning that there’s something to suit any aesthetic. Whether you want to go bold and bright with a summer bouquet or keep things neutral with a dried arrangement paired with some candles, there’s bound to be the right artificial flowers for you.
