The restaurant business is a competitive one, and with that competition comes the need to provide, not just great food and service, but an engaging ambience for patrons. The design of the restaurant is an integral part of the experience, and many restaurants are using plant life and green elements with their modern décor. But what if you could get the same look at a fraction of the cost and maintenance?

Faux Plants for Unique Restaurant Décor

Height, texture, color: you can add it all with faux plants for your restaurant décor. Lifelike artificial trees, succulents, palms, hanging baskets, and decorative reeds are all great additions, and have multiple functions that go beyond the aesthetic. For example, hanging baskets filled with faux vines and flowers can be used to draw the eye up to a high ceiling, and leafy boxwood hedges can be used as space dividers between the louder bar area and a quieter dining room.

Say Goodbye to High-Maintenance Greenery

Running a restaurant is hard work, so why complicate matters with plants that you have to babysit? And even with the best plant care, there are no guarantees that leaves won’t brown and greenery won’t fade. Replacing plants can be expensive and maintaining them, time consuming.

Faux plants, on the other hand, always look their best. They can be placed high up, in hard-to-water places since they require no water. They can be put in a dark corner and thrive without light. Or they can be lined up on an outdoor patio, and their UV-protected greenery won’t fade from the sun. On tabletops, faux plant arrangements will shine beautifully without worry of attracting pests that pester your guests, or root rot and mold growth from overwatering. And guests with allergies to certain plants can dine peacefully in an atmosphere that uses faux greenery.

Don’t Want to Go “Full Faux”? Mix it Up!

There’s no crime in mixing in faux plants with the real thing. Many designs have real plants in areas where people can touch, smell, and see them close up: such as on tabletops, bars, dining areas, etc. However, for out-of-reach areas where it’s not practical to have live plants (on high shelves, second stories, etc.) faux plants are a great way to keep the green theme while halving the cost and time of plant maintenance.
