For interior styling and bright decoration, you'll love the effects of an artificial hanging plant. Made from plastic or cloth, a shortcut, leafy or flowery foliage can upgrade any room from bathrooms to bedrooms without the hassle of plant maintenance. For people who have allergies or simply don't have the time to water and care for natural plants, artificial plants are an easy way to enjoy the luxury of indoor and outdoor plants without the hassle.
We've sourced a wide selection of UK products, including the notorious IKEA 'fejkas', and we've also created a short and handy buying guide to make your decision-making process easier. From Amazon, eBay, and Argos, you're sure to find these realistic plants useful for decorating, whether it's for dangling in pots or baskets from the ceiling of your home or decorating a beautiful wedding venue.
In this section, we'll talk you through the steps to help you buy the most suitable artificial plant for you. Whether it's to decorate a wedding reception or add a splash of colour to your living room, we'll guide you through what makes a great artificial plant.
You can mix and match plants in your home, just as they would be seen in their natural environment. That said, it's good to know a little bit about the plant you're buying, even if it is artificial. This way, you can make it fit in as naturally as possible.
Adding a touch of greenery to your home can create such a welcoming vibe, and it's a style that will never go out of fashion. Wrapping some leafage around a mirror or dangling a Fejka from a shelf, although being small changes, can make a significant difference to the feel of a room.
Plants like Ivy, Fern, and Moss are most commonly seen on Pinterest's interior design moodboards and rightly so, thanks to their natural ability to brighten up a room. Usually, these plants tend to require a lot of maintenance, so buying artificial versions is an easy way to cheat the system.
From bedrooms to birthday venues, flowers will never fail to put a smile on your face, and that's what decorating is all about. Flower vines such as Rose and Wisteria are vibrant with enough colour to brighten up any display, and the best part is they won't wilt when out of season!
With artificial hanging flowers, you can bring springtime colours such as yellow, pink, and violet into any room at any time of the year and be sure that they won't rot and leave dead petals everywhere! Artificial flowers can be added to archways, stuffed in plant pots or hung from ceiling rope to add a splash of colour to a dull corner.
Are you looking for a plant to add to your hanging basket, or would you rather have one that's potted and ready to go? Both of these serve their own benefits, although we think it's better to opt for a plant that hasn't been potted yet as that way, you're free to decide where it's placed.
In addition, if you choose to buy multiple plants without a pot, you could combine them all in one hanger to create a unique artificial plant with your favourite leaves and flowers. If you're buying for yourself, you'll appreciate the freedom of a plant without a pot. If you're buying for a friend, a potted plant is a ready-to-go, complete gift that they won't need to buy any additional pot for.
Every artificial plant is made from durable plastic to ensure that it can withstand day-to-day environments such as cold weather and sunlight. Of course, they're much more durable than a natural plant and don't require maintenance unless it's a quick dust or clean. While plastic is strong and flexible, it can sometimes lack a realistic effect. This is when cloth comes in handy for recreating delicate petals and leaves.
Cloth is a thinner material that doesn't stretch or have a shine to it as plastic does. It also creates a subtler display that looks as close to a natural plant as possible. These two materials are the perfect combination for a realistic floral plant although, if you're shopping for leaves like Ivy that has a natural shine, some plastic artificial plants wouldn't go amiss.
