Our top 15 most realistic artificial plants for home decor

When it comes to artificial greenery, faux plants get some of the worst reps; perhaps it's because they were tacky and cheap-looking in the past. Nothing is worse than artificial indoor plants for home décor, looking less than lifelike. Or the worst, when it's harboring dust, it feels icky and sticky. That's where we come in; we saw an issue with the way faux greenery was manufactured and set out to create the most lifelike plants out there. Who better to design silk plants than horticulturists with species of plants named after them? At Nearly Natural, we design all of our artificial plants using the latest advancement. Our experience allows us to pay particular attention to the architecture of flora and create an artistic rendition of nature.

As humans, many of us want to feel closer to nature. But might be limited by our lifestyles with the stresses of having kids, pets, and lacking a green thumb. That's why decorating with artificial plants is a perfect solution for those that want to get the look without the hassle or upkeep of maintaining live plants. There are many benefits of artificial plants; some of them include cognitive and spiritual. According to studies, both real and faux plants can help humans concentrate and relax because we naturally flock to nature. Browse our artificial plants today to see yourself the texture and experience the Nearly Natural difference.

Where should you decorate with artificial plants?

Bathroom

The bathroom is a place where you often might not think about decorating with small plants, but did you know? Plants during a long bath can help you relax and unwind after a long day but with the humidity of the water and oftentimes, a lack of sunlight, it can be difficult to maintain real ones, but get the look with fake plants for the bathroom. Large floor plants are a proven way to still experience biophilia because they’re perfect for low light areas and those spaces with much humidity. Even if you have a small bathroom consider hanging artificial plants that are a space saver in any space.

Nursery

Some of the most precious moments for a mommy include decorating the nursery and making every last detail perfect. Here at Nearly Natural, nurseries are some of our favorite spaces; there's something so intimate and special about nurseries. We know nothing is more important than keeping the baby safe, and since babies are unpredictable, many parents prefer faux greenery to real flora because it's easier to maintain. Sleepless parents can relate…. One of our customer-favorite fake trees, the olive, is perfect for any little nook and looks great next to the nursing chair.

Outdoors

Creating your outdoor dream area can be tricky. This is because of natural elements that we have no control over. Hurricanes in Florida and snowstorms in Texas are unpredictable. But imagine if you live in the winter wonderland, most of the USA does, you might find it hard to get that tropical oasis look. But with artificial plants for outdoor, you can quickly get the look without the maintenance. For example, if you want to add a living wall in your outdoor area, consider an artificial plant wall for home décor. This is a trend we cannot get enough of. Add multiple wall mats alongside a bland wall for a tropical oasis look.

Bedrooms

We spend much time in our bedrooms, a sanctuary, and a place to escape after a long day out. Because the bedroom is so unique, it's essential to nourish it with the best there is. Nothing is more relaxing than decorating with artificial indoor plants for home décor. Especially when you want your space glowing without the added maintenance of taking care of plants. The best silk plants for the bedroom depend on your style, as every plant is beautiful and unique in its way. Creating a bedroom to suit your palette is where you can be as private as possible; although we know this is a personal decision, some of our favorite plants for bedroom are fiddle leaf figs, olive trees, palm trees, and succulents.

Kitchen

Spruce up your kitchen with artificial plants. There's no better way to feel that organic element in one of the most memorable spaces of any home. A popular trendy look includes the use of hanging plants in open shelving kitchens. The overarching long, droopy leaves add color, depth, and texture to otherwise flat areas. Another more classic and traditional look that we love is fresh flowers in the middle of the kitchen sink. However, instead of dealing with the hassle of running to the store and buying a fresh bouquet, why not opt for realistic lifelike silk flowers always in bloom.
