If you think your home is lacking a little color and you want to make it just a bit greener, perhaps using artificial grass is the way to go. It’s safe and incredibly durable. What’s more, it looks so natural that nobody would believe it’s actually fake.
Just think about it, using a synthetic turf is actually a lot easier than using natural grass all around your home. For starters, there is no need to wake up early on a Saturday morning just to water or mow your lawn. That’s because artificial requires little to no maintenance at all so you can spend your weekends lounging around and enjoying the comfort of your home. What’s more, any dirt that gets on it can be easily cleaned up thanks to the drainage system that it typically comes installed with. It dries quickly too so it would never feel icky to step on.
That said, did you know that you there actually a number of clever ways that you can use artificial turf right inside your own home. To give you some inspiration, here are some design tips on how you can utilize synthetic grass inside your own home:
Indoor Weights Room and Gym
Especially when you have someone in the house who loves sports, having a part of your home gym resemble a playing field can help them train for a big game even when the weather outside is not good. Not to mention, artificial grass can also help protect your floors especially if the family athletes drop weights often.
There’s no reason why artificial grass should just stay on your floor. In fact, you can line your walls with it to get a nice nature theme going. Use this near your home entrance to make a statement. Meanwhile, it also makes a nice wallpaper for any of the rooms in the house.
Indoor Dog Playroom
Admit it, it’s quite hard to keep your dog occupied when they are inside the house. They can just be lying in one corner one minute and chewing off one of your pillows the next. The situation gets worse from here when the weather is bad and there’s just no way you can let them out. With their very own playroom inside the house though, that should never be an issue again.
You can cover a room with artificial grass before installing a track that your dog can run on all day. For them, it would almost be like being able to go to the park, but with much less hassle and effort on your part.
Keep these design ideas in mind when you go about making your home just a bit greener and livelier. Bring a bit of the outside in without the need to clean up as often. This way, you can always feel like you’re closer to nature even if it’s raining hard and you can’t step outside.
