Whether you are trying to add a touch of nature to an office or you want to incorporate a tropical feel into your home, artificial trees are the perfect solution. While live plants are an option, they tend to be more expensive, require a lot of maintenance, and can be hard to find depending on the variety you are interested in. Faux trees come with none of those problems and are a welcome sight in interior spaces located in urban environments.
There are several benefits to choosing artificial trees, not least of which is that these plants require next to no care. Real plants require trimming, watering, cutting, pruning, and re-soiling, all of which take time and effort. On the other hand, artificial trees can be placed and all but forgotten about. This is a huge benefit, especially in large offices where plants would need to be maintained every day to keep them healthy and vibrant.
Faux trees and other plants are also great in corporate locations because they increase inspiration and motivation among workers. This can create a workforce that is productive, creative, and efficient. While the plants are “fake,” they look just like real plants and have the same psychological benefits of being near nature.
Artificial trees are often lightweight and can be installed in minutes by our team of professionals. There’s no need to bring in heavy machinery, professional gardeners, or landscaping artists. Instead, one or two people can move the plants and put them wherever you want. These plants are much lighter than live plants and can be installed, moved, and managed quickly and easily. If theft is a concern, our fabrication team can ensure that our planters are weighted to help prevent unwanted movement or theft. The plants themselves can also stay in pristine condition for years; this is something live plants aren’t capable of.
Now that you know the benefits of artificial trees and plants, let’s look at the top three most popular for the year:
One of the most popular trees for indoor spaces right now is the humble olive tree. As urban jungles become increasingly popular, Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds are consistently showing off the beauty of these gorgeous trees. As one of the top artificial trees today, an olive tree adds a touch of the Mediterranean to any home or office.
With a faux olive tree, you don’t need to worry about the issues that can come with live trees such as outgrowing your space. You can customize the tree design to fit your space perfectly and it will not encroach beyond the space allocated. There’s also no need to make sure the plant is in a sunny area for multiple hours each day or receiving adequate water and nutrients. Instead, this beautiful tree adds a touch of greenery to an indoor space for all guests to enjoy.
Another tree that you can see rising in popularity is the fiddle leaf tree. As artificial trees, these are sculptural and lush with a great aesthetic for photograph backdrops. When you go with an replica fiddle leaf, you don’t have to worry about the intensive care a live version of this tree needs.
Unlike real fiddle leaf trees, this version doesn’t need a room filled with light to flourish. There’s no need to water it or maintain its leaves and limbs. All you have to do is find the perfect spot for it. Once you set it in the right location, it will make an impact without taking time out of your day.
The final of the top three artificial trees for interior spaces this year is the rubber tree. This is a gorgeous tree that has a look you won’t find in other plants. It has leaves that appear to be leathery and smooth with vibrant colours that add appeal to any indoor space. The best part is that it adds a feel of the tropics to your home without requiring any maintenance.
Rubber trees come in several colours, but with artificial trees, that number only goes up. You can choose a leafy green model or one with darker greens. If you want, you can even select a rubber tree in a colour that isn’t available with a live tree. And, if you believe in feng shui, this plant can offer good luck and fortune, which most of us could use a bit more of.
If you are redecorating a corporate office or other space, artificial trees are an excellent way to build an elegant space without spending a lot of money. You can select the trees that you find most appealing and place them wherever you like, without concerns about shade and sunlight. Doing so is sure to be appreciated by employees and clients alike.
