If you're like me, you love adding a touch of nature to your home, but you don't want the hassle of having to take care of a live plant.
It's hard enough keeping up with regular house plants, let alone ones that need constant watering and sunlight.
Preserved moss walls are the perfect solution! Not only do they look beautiful and add a touch of nature to your home, but they also require very little maintenance.
But before you buy, there are a few things you need to know. In this post, we'll cover everything from how to hang your art, to how to take care of it. So if you're curious about preserved moss wall art, read on!
Living Moss Walls - What are they?
Living walls have been around for a while and can be very beneficial to your indoor air quality. Here is why:
Moss holds moisture in the air. When dry, it absorbs water and when wet, it releases water into the air. This means that by having moss wall art inside your home, you are adding humidity to the air.
Living walls have been proven to increase your quality of sleep and productivity .
Moss absorbs toxins from the air that cause damage in our bodies.
So what makes a preserved moss wall art different?
Unlike a living wall, a preserved moss wall doesn't require any upkeep. Once it's set up, there is no water involved in the process, these pieces of wall art are much less expensive than their live moss counterparts, and they don't require direct sunlight.
Visually they appear just as beautiful as their live counterparts and they look just as good up close as they do from far away.
Moss walls also naturally purify the air, helping to remove toxins that cause damage in our bodies.
What to Know Before You Buy Preserved Moss Wall Art
Although they require very little upkeep, you do need to know a few things before you purchase your own piece of wall art.
The size of the preserved moss piece that you choose will depend on where you plan on putting it and what kind of look you're going for. This also depends on how much room you have to work with.
If you want the piece to be the focus of your room, choose a larger piece. You can go smaller if you want it to be more subtle. Also note that because preserved moss is heavier than live moss, the bigger the piece, the heavier it will be.
Keeping with the theme of low-maintenance plant art, most preserved moss pieces come with care instructions that are extremely simple to follow. The basic idea is "do nothing." The piece will last for years.
However, because the preserved moss material absorbs moisture from the air around it, you should avoid hanging it in direct sunlight or near heating sources.
Do preserved moss walls need to be watered?
Since preserved moss pieces are completely artificial, there is no water involved in the maintenance process. This makes these art pieces an amazing addition to your decor space. In appearance they look and feel like live walls, but they require no upkeep and they maintain their beauty for years to come.
How to Hang Preserved Moss Wall Art
To hang preserved moss wall art is extremely easy. Most pieces come with a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. If not, don't fret as all you need for that is wire and an eye hook or nail (to hang onto your wall).
Benefits of Moss Wall Art
Moss wall art will give you the same benefits of having a living moss wall without the hassle. They purify air, add humidity to the room they're in, and look beautiful while doing it.
If you're looking for an easy way to decorate your home that also brings nature inside, preserved moss wall art is perfect for you.
Preserved moss walls also vary in price, depending on how much you want to spend. Simple, less expensive pieces tend to be smaller in size. Larger preserved moss walls will have intricate details that smaller pieces do not possess.
However the best way to get exactly what you desire is to hire a botanical artist to create a custom piece. This will guarantee the size that will fit your space best.
Preserved moss wall art is the best decision for those who want easy and low-maintenance decor that will also add beauty to their home. Because it doesn't require any water or sunlight, this type of wall art is perfect for anyone who wants a beautiful piece of art that requires very little upkeep.
