Artificial plants can have a large impact of homes and offices. They look great, but they can also have strong psychological affects.
Studies show that introducing plants into the workplace can help lower sick leave and increase productivity. These are facts that are scientifically proven, and are a major reason for the increase in the popularity of office plants worldwide. So much so, that it's rare to find an office that is not fitted out with plants. Green foliage creates a change in environment whether it is artificial or real.
Gone are the days when silk plants and flowers were clearly artificial. Our artificial plants' modern design and printing techniques gives you, the customer, realistic artificial silk plants and flowers that are difficult to distinguish from the originals.
Our artificial plants are becoming more popular than ever before. Technological improvements mean that silk plants are now being used more and more in people's homes, as well as in offices and high profile environments.
There are also many other benefits from using artificial plants or flowers. Artificial foliage needs little upkeep; with a quick dusting every few months being required to keep them looking in tip top shape.
Another advantage of artificial plants is that they can be used in places where it's not really practical to use live plants. Low lit positions, or environments that may be too cold or too hot, can all use artificial foliage to great success.
Also, many health inspectors frown on live plants if they are placed in close proximity to food. This has created so many problems, that most restaurants avoid using real plants in the food serving areas. This ensures that food is never contaminated with plant debris or bug droppings.
Our artificial plants are ideal for allergy suffers as there is no pollen. As silk plants and flowers need so little maintenance (if any), you can be certain they will always look their best. There will be no problems with leaf drop in the fall, or bugs in the summer months. Unfortunately, these are all disadvantages that must be contended with when using living plants.
Since artificial foliage needs so little maintenance they can be far more economical in the long term. Many of our clients are businesses whose offices are changing over from live plants to their artificial equivalents.
Plants are an established and important part of architecture. That's why it is interesting to discover that many architects & designers around the world now recognise the distinct advantages offered by silk plants, and are even using them in high-profile settings.
Artificial plants have finally come of age, and are now a very worthwhile alternative to real plants, but without any of the headaches. Real plants still have their place, yet there are now a wide range of advantages to be gained from considering artificial planting.
