1. They’re Hypoallergenic
Are you allergic to certain types of flowers? Does your hay fever kick in anytime fresh flowers make an appearance on the dining room table? If so, you might want to consider decorating with artificial flowers instead. You get all the beauty of your favorite flowers without all the sneezing and itchy, watery eyes.
2. They Leave No Mess
Sure, real flowers are beautiful, but they leave behind quite a mess when they begin to wither and die. Furthermore, if you get lucky enough to have flowers that last a long time, it’s important to change the water periodically or the smell will turn your guests away.
Artificial flowers, on the other hand, leave no mess (because they never die), and since they require no watering, you don’t have to worry about that awful decaying smell.
3. They Last Forever
Fresh flowers die, artificial ones don’t. It’s as easy as that. If you love the look of flowers around your home but hate having to replace expensive bouquets weekly, give artificial flowers a try. They last forever!
4. They’re Safe For Kids And Pets
Certain species of flowers can be toxic for kids and pets. You can’t keep your eye on them every second of the day, so do away with the fresh flowers and use fake ones instead. You won’t have to worry about Fluffy’s health when she decides your new artificial bouquet is her new plaything.
5. They Work Well In DIY Projects
If you’re the DIY type, you know how much you like for your projects to stand the test of time. If you use artificial flowers in your projects, you can be sure they will look as great in 5 years as they did on the day you made the project. You can’t say that about fresh flowers, can you?
6. They’re Cheaper
Artificial flowers don’t have to be replaced like fresh flowers do. Your initial investment will continue adding beauty to your home for years to come.
Artificial flowers as home décor are making a comeback. With today’s fake flowers looking as lifelike as their real counterparts, there’s no reason to deal with the mess and hassle of fresh flowers as décor anymore. Read through the benefits above and decide for yourself whether artificial flowers would be a good choice in your own home or not.
