Yes, You Can Use Fake Grass At Home

Artificial grass—or turf—isn't the strange and cheap-looking material that it was before. Turf can now be a trendy and stylish accent when real grass isn't an option.

Originally intended to be used in sports fields, artificial grass or turf has now become a popular choice material to be used in modern homes—not just because it is non-toxic, non-flammable, and 100 percent recyclable characteristics, but because of its versatility. Some examples of faux grass are so realistic, they have dead or browning grass "blades" in between the green ones!

With the fast-paced life we live in this concrete jungle, consider incorporating faux grass into your dwellings to bring in a relaxed energy and fun atmosphere.  Get going and go green, here are six ways you can use artificial turf in your homes:

Add a faux organic accent wall.


Living in condominiums can sometimes feel stuffy, especially when you don’t have a balcony to bring in a light and airy feeling. Change the ambiance by installing floor-to-ceiling faux grass (or in this case, sheets of faux shrubs, also available in most home depots). This will add a touch of green to a space and create texture on a flat wall—bringing the outdoors in, so to speak. To see the rest of this starter home, click here. 

Build a garden paradise.


If your rooftop is not strong enough to have real grass (and the landscaping soil underneath it), then artificial grass will fill in very nicely. It also means that you don’t need to worry about cutting or clipping growing grass every now and then. To build your own rooftop Zen garden, click here. 

Create a picturesque setup.


Love being surrounded by nature and the fluttering of birds and tall trees? Create a space that shows just that! Have a flooring of fake grass, a furniture with wooden elements and harmonize everything with accessories with prints of birds and other nature’s wonders.

Make your condo balcony brighter and fresh.


Now, if your condominium unit has a balcony, chances are you are surrounded by tall, concrete buildings as well. Offset the urban scenic background by playing joyful colors such as sunny yellows with a flooring of vivid artificial grass. (And add a few potted plants to create your balcony "garden.")

Use as an area rug.


Using faux turf as an area rug will certainly add a bit of quirk to a space. It is also low in maintenance compared to ordinary area rugs as it is easier to clean and also strong enough to withstand regular foot traffic. To see the rest of this industrial condo unit, click here. 

Complement your surroundings in a vacation home.


If you are lucky enough to have scenic views of greenery anda  mountain range, spoil yourself and complement the space with more greenery! Dress up your balcony and carpet the flooring with artificial grass so as to create a continuation of the beautiful nature background into your home. This being a vacation home, there might not be anyone to water an actual lawn daily, and artificial grass is perfect for this situation. To learn more about NEST @ Tagaytay, follow them on Facebook.
