Why You Should Decorate Your Kitchen With Artificial Flowers And How To Do It
I bet you saw a lot of colorful plants and flowers on the design sketch when you tried to redo the kitchen, maybe on top of the sink or near the oven. That’s reasonable because now people don’t just take the kitchen as a merely functional place. It needs some deck, too. But after you really tried to fit some floral into the cooking place, you realize that things are not that simple. Many factors make fresh flower decoration something impossible in the kitchen. So today we’re going to talk about using artificial flower as an alternative.
Why you should decorate your kitchen with fake plants instead of real ones
To get rid of all those troubles real flower might bring to you. Above all, the priory factor is that it might contaminate your food. Planting something next to your cooker would get dirt in your dishes. And if these plants happen to have flowers with a lot of pollen, your food might become an allergen in summer.
Also, plants have to be of very strong vitality to grow prosperously for the high temperature, humidity and lack of sunlight in the kitchen. That’s the reason why you’d always find kitchen decoration plants to be ferns or spider plants, because those plants are shade-loving. Well the color and shape of those shade-loving plants are very similar, bringing in a lot of limitations when decorating your kitchen. That’s why artificial flowers came as quite an alternative for many families.
To be clear, I’m not referring to those low-cost fake vine with ugly, plastic-looking. Actually many types of artificial flowers are made to be extremely realistic that you won’t be able to tell it’s fake unless you give it a very very close look. Those real look and real touch flowers have no trouble “living” in anywhere or at any time of year. They are totally neat and pollen-free.
