Are Artificial Plants and Flowers Good For a Baby Nursery?

Everyone has had a little more time at home lately with their loved ones, and history tells us that those are just the right circumstances to create a baby boom. Whether you’re expecting your first child or you’re adding a seventh family member, every baby deserves a space created just for them.

There are so many baby girl room themes (and baby boy themes) that have classic decor like those flower paintings and have blue or pink wallpaper. I think it’s time we switch it up and add plants for your baby nursery room and maybe add flower wallpaper to your nursery.

If you are considering adding a new touch to your baby nursery, think of fake plants instead of real plants.

Artificial flowers and plants are the perfect way to beautify a nursery. They can add color and charm without creating hidden dangers that live plants can. If you’re decorating a room for a soon-to-be member of your family, consider these reasons to choose faux flowers and plants.

Artificial flowers and plants are allergen-free.

When you choose faux flowers and plants for the nursery, you can be sure you’re not bringing in any unwanted allergens that could be harmful to your new little one. Clean your fake plants regularly, and you’ll avoid any dust build-up as well.

You don’t have to worry about toxic plants.

Some plants and flowers can be deadly if a child ingests them, but with fake flowers and plants in your baby’s nursery, there’s no need to worry you might accidentally use a plant in your décor that could cause harm if a curious toddler ingested it.

Faux plants and flowers aren’t as messy.

Pots with live plants require dirt, which can end up being a mess if a small child decides it would be fun to dig in the dirt or accidentally tips the pot over. Pots with live plants in them can also be heavy, which means they could cause a lot of damage to a small child if they tipped over.

Fake plants and flowers are less messy and lighter, making them a perfect choice for a decorated flower baby nursery.

It’s not hard to find the perfect arrangement.

When you choose artificial plants for your child’s room, you can get exactly what you want without worrying about if the plant will grow well in your house or having to find a sunny space for it in the room. Faux plants can sit on a shelf well out of the sunlight, providing a pop of color and requiring no care except for the occasional cleaning.

Fake plants also allow you to match the color scheme of your room with ease.

Artificial flowers and plants are more versatile.

Using fake blooms opens up a world of decorating possibilities. There are so many things you can do with flower nursery decor.

You can string faux stems around the ceiling of the room as a border, create 3D artwork or even make a plant wall. The possibilities are limited only by your decorating imagination. Grab some inspiration by checking out this Tracial Homes Pinterest board.

As you decorate your nursery in anticipation of the happy arrival of your child, consider using artificial flowers and plants to create the perfect room for your new little bundle of joy.
