I’ve been spending a lot of time at home lately, and if you’re like me, you’re getting tired of seeing the same décor around your house, especially in spaces you use frequently like the living area. It can be costly to redo an entire room, but just adding a few touches here and there can make the whole space seem new again.
Adding faux plant décor to your living room could be just the thing your room needs to feel bright and new again. Choosing the best artificial plants to meet your needs can seem tricky, though. With so many to choose from, how do you know which ones to pick?
Well, we have a few tips to help you choose the right artificial plants for your home that will add some interest to your living room.
1. Make it a centerpiece.
Many living rooms are centered around a large coffee table in the center of the room. Add a large, colorful arrangement of flowers or several smaller ones to the top of the table to draw a person’s attention as soon as they enter the room. Keep arrangements relatively short, like this Protea arrangement, so that they don’t impede conversation.
This Protea arrangement is simple, yet beautiful, and would look lovely on any tabletop!
2. Fill a corner.
Those corner spaces can be tough to get right. If you put a chair in the corner, there’s a lot of wasted space behind it, but shoving the couch or shelf in the corner doesn’t always work. Make your corners interesting by putting a large faux plant or tree, like our Faux Smoke Tree, in the corner. Large artificial plants can even sit behind a chair and peek out over the top of the chair.

Pro Tip: Instead of setting a large arrangement in the corner of your room, consider adding a Multipurpose Corner Shelf. This way you can add multiple flower or succulent arrangements along with other things like books, candles or picture frames. Adding a corner shelf can spruce up your space and add to your feng shui.
3. Create conversation.
Choose interesting artificial plants for your home décor that will spark conversation. Place a faux flower arrangement in a whimsical planter, like these Unique Head Pot with artificial flowers, or choose an interestingly shaped artificial plant, like this Artificial Jasmine Twig Bundles, that will make guests want to know where you got it.

4. Go green.
Add green plants to fill spaces on bookshelves or on the mantel. Succulents like our Faux Agave plant are perfect for small spaces on shelves. Using faux plants gives your living space a fresh, outdoor feeling without the care and upkeep of live plants. Sticking with green plants doesn’t draw undue attention to the plants and will keep the focus on the other items on your shelves and mantel.
This Agave plant is the perfect addition to a bathroom, living room or kitchen countertop.
5. Make small changes.
Small flower arrangements or plants can make a big difference. If you don’t have a large budget for faux flowers and plants, choose something smaller or switch out what’s in your living room with artificial plants you have elsewhere in the house. You’ll be surprised at how much difference a small change can make.
While adding faux flowers and plants is a simple way to change up your living space, other small changes can make a big difference, too. Check out some of these ideas from Good Housekeeping. And don’t forget that adding seasonal touches can keep your space looking fresh and new, as well.
