Come December and the only thing that comes to mind is Christmas – the season of joy. There is color everywhere, shops and homes are well lit and everyone is busy picking their favorite clothing to look their best. Christmas is the time when families come together, friends meet up and all that is exchanged is love and good times.
While everything around us gives out that festive vibe, our house also receives a look that keeps us feeling right from the time we are up in the morning. With bright and colorful Christmas decorations that last for a month or so, we put in all the efforts just so that we match up to the festive spirit in the right way.
When it comes to decorating the house, people tend to look out for ideas and quite often make use of real decorations rather than the artificial ones. What they fail to realize is that such an arrangement doesn’t reap good benefits and choosing the artificial ones are a better option. To know why, read on.
There is minimal maintenance involved
As already said, artificial decorations are made up of plastic, metal and other non-perishable substance that does not need maintenance other than storing it safely when the season ends. When it concerns putting up the real tree for Christmas, there has to be someone to constantly monitor the wilting pine needles, the growth of mold, and spray water from time to time just to keep that freshness alive.
You save money
Buying a real pine tree that would pose as the Christmas tree can turn out to be expensive on your part due to numerous reasons. Firstly, it is something that would be cut and not uprooted for you and so after a few days, there are chances of it wilting away depending on the indoor temperature. Secondly, since it is lifeless now, the pine needles would break away from its place thus making you purchase a new tree within a week or so and that would cost you extra money. Therefore, compared to a real tree, buying an artificial look-alike is a feasible option where there is no need for replacement and you can use it over and over again for the years to come without having to spend multiple times.
You receive a value if you sell it
There are times when people get bored of the same old Christmas decorations and intend to sell off those at a minimal price just in case people want to buy them. A well maintained Christmas decoration set consisting of the tree and other ornaments would attract a good resale value and isn’t something as that of a real tree that turns out to be a waste after a few weeks of installation.
There is better longevity
Artificial Christmas decorations are often made of plastic or probably metal and when cared for and stored in the right place, they would be there to brighten up your house for multiple Christmas seasons in the years to come. A real tree and floral decorations for Christmas doesn’t last for long while making you waste money on something that doesn’t have longevity for itself.
You get to pass it on to the generations to come
Christmas is one of those significant celebrations in our lives and the decorations associated with it are something that is very precious. There are people who own decorative pieces owned by their grandfathers and so when you have a collection of the best decorative pieces and take good care of them and store it well, you too can pass them on to the generations to come thus making it antique in nature.
There is vibrancy all around
Artificial decorations come in vivid colors that are always vibrant and catchy. Since it is the season to be merry, the color adds to the joy, which is something absent when you make use of natural decorative items to put up a Christmas tree. Christmas decorations come in various designs both modern and traditional and adorning them to the tree is something that peps up the mood in the best possible way.
It is hygienic
When you store a real tree indoors with all that water sprays and extra care that it receives just to stay fresh, it tends to contract mold and fungal infestation. This is something that is unhealthy and unhygienic for the indoor air that you would eventually breathe. Apart from that, there would be this dirty mess all around especially when the leaves of the tree wilts away and falls off everywhere that you have to put efforts to clean later. With artificial decorations, there is nothing of that sort that you have to deal with. All you need to do I simply put the decorations back in place once you make plans to wrap up.
Your house doesn’t get infested with pests secretly
There are numerous pests that find trees a warm and nice place to thrive in. When you bring home a real tree as a Christmas decoration, you may bring along pests such as wood borers and termites that may unknowingly transfer to the furniture indoors or probably make way to other warmer places in the house. That would be something that you wouldn’t want at any cost especially when you know how difficult can it get when it comes to getting rid of those pests. It may happen that you are completely aware of their presence while it does all the possible damage. With an artificial tree, there is no chance of pests coming along as most of them are made up of high-quality plastic that is known to be sturdy and strong with no intention of causing problem s to your house.
Therefore, the next time you plan on bringing along the best of the decorations for Christmas, you must remember to buy artificial ones and not the real ones as it does not good to you and your family in any way.
