Decorating with artificial plants is one of the simplest ways to bring a touch of freshness, nature and life into your home, and there are so many options to choose from. In this article, we’ll discuss two of the best ways you can incorporate artificial climbing plants into your decor.

The advantages of artificial climbing plants

Many people feel that artificial plants can look a bit cheap and tacky. However, this doesn’t have to be the case, and there are actually many advantages to having artificial plants rather than real ones.

We recommend artificial plants for anyone who doesn’t have the time to take care of real plants. Plus, with artificial plants, you won’t need to spend hours picking up leaves in the fall.

Another reason we love artificial climbing plants is you can put them in places it would be impossible to have real plants. As you’ll soon see, decorating with artificial plants can produce some truly spectacular results.

1. Balconies

If you have a balcony, you’ve probably experienced that moment where you’ve felt like you’re in full view of the entire neighborhood. A meal with friends, an afternoon sunbathing, or simply enjoying a drink on your balcony can leave you feeling watched. And even more so if your balcony is joined to your neighbor’s. Often, they are only separated by a small fence, which offers next to nothing in the way of privacy.

Decorating your balcony with artificial climbing plants is a great way to solve this issue. We recommend buying a wooden trellis that you can attach your plants to. Make sure it is high enough to give you all the privacy you need.

As well as being aesthetically beautiful, you’ll be able to enjoy your wall all year round.

2. Natural entrance hall

Whoever said that you could only have climbing plants outside? In this section, we’ll show you one way to decorate your interior with artificial climbing plants. Using artificial plants means you don’t need to worry about the temperature or how the humidity from watering your plants might affect your walls. However, this idea will only be suitable for the most adventurous interior designers.

If you like bold, original decor, this is definitely an idea to keep in mind. For the purposes of this article, we want to focus solely on entrance halls, as artificial plants are the perfect way to decorate one of the most boring areas of the house.

Though it can take a bit of time, this idea is very simple: line the walls of your entrance hall with artificial climbing plants. While it might seem a little out there, this is a great way to really bring your entrance hall to life. Plus, it’s the perfect way to surprise your guests as they walk in the front door.

To create a more realistic effect we would recommend buying some narrow plant pots that won’t take up much room. Another option is to place stones along the floor to keep your plants in place and make sure they don’t start to take over the entire hallway like some kind of miniature rain forest.

While we’ve only looked at hallways, you can actually try out this look anywhere in your home. For example, artificial plants can be a great way to decorate your headboard or create a dividing wall between the living room and dining room.

Maintaining your artificial climbing plants

There are so many options when it comes to climbing plants, and the best part is they need very little maintenance. All you really need to do is dust them from time to time. If you notice them starting to get dirty, you can simply wipe them down with a damp cloth.

We recommend buying good quality artificial plants so that they keep looking great year after year. Cheap artificial plants have very thin, flimsy leaves, and tend to deteriorate quickly. We only recommend this option if it’s only going to be temporary decor, like for a special occasion.

As you can see, decorating with artificial climbing plants is really easy. These plants are really versatile, so you can put them almost anywhere, without needing to do much maintenance.
