As many people have realized, the development in the field of silk trees has grown tremendously in the last five years. They are being looked at as the ideal replacements for real trees that are used for interior decoration. And all the hard work seems to have paid off because the contemporary silk trees tend to look and feel better than ever.
There are many reasons for why you should use silk trees for your house or office decoration. They require minimal maintenance, do not die after a stipulated time, your pets cannot destroy them with their teeth and they won’t dirty your precious floor if they trip over.
However, you cannot compromise the looks for all the other benefits put together, because their primary purpose is decoration. The ideal thing to do in this case is to choose silk trees that look extremely authentic. With new technologies like real touch, there are many special stores that have devoted themselves to sell fake trees that look as authentic as possible. Go for fake trees that are potted in something that looks like genuine soil. The old straw filters are something that you must immediately rule out because they have the word, “FAKE”, written all over them.
Another thing that you must be sure to remember is choosing trees which are suitable for the given space. For example, you must not choose a silk Palm tree if you want to decorate your window sill. Most people will immediately realize that your tree is a fake one. Also make sure that the silk trees you buy should suit the climate of your immediate surrounding. For example, you shouldn’t buy a tropical silk tree if you happen to live in a cold climate.
The best way to decorate your house or office with silk trees is to arrange a bunch of them together. The resultant effect will look far more appealing and authentic. When a bunch of these trees are stacked together, they tend to blend with each other extremely well.
If you study trees closely, you will notice that each and every tree is unique not only in size but in shape. With the exception of nursery grown trees, which have an ornamental shaped canopy, most trees have a natural flowing shaped canopy. An immediate give-away that your tree is fake would be if the canopy shade looks too contrived. Real trees never look too organized and have a sense of wild glee associated with them. You must try and reproduce the same effect with your artificial trees by shaping the leaves to look as they would in nature. Shape the leaves in varying directions so that they fill the voids in the canopy. Plant some real plants at the base of you silk tree as this will act as an excellent disguise.
