More than the beautiful effect, green walls benefit the home with many advantages. This form of plant cultivation offers a natural setting, integration between different spaces and a very charming way of decorating. Do you know what a green wall is? Basically, it is a set of plants grown in an extended way on a wall. Some houses use climbing plants and other species so that the walls can gain a more natural effect throughout their structure. However, vertical gardens are not always a green wall  installed on wall space. Often, potted plants can also be arranged vertically. 

The green-walled effect is great for just about any living space in the home, whether in living rooms or bathrooms. What counts is your personal preference and the supervision of good professionals. In addition to visually beautiful effects in the home decoration, the ambiance with green wall brings numerous advantages, such as noise insulation in the home and thermal insulation in the environment. It can also serve as air filters and its maintenance is easy, since for the most part , the green wall consists of small plants with short roots, which do not grow much over time and provide easy pruning. To let you know a little more about the benefits of decorating your home with the use of green walls, or vertical gardens, we have brought some fantastic design suggestions made by great professionals at homify India. We are sure that you will consider with great affection the installation of this type of  garden, which in addition to adding value to the property, will also improve your quality of life.  Come with us, check out some wonderful ideas and start thinking about your project today!

1. Thermal insulation

If you suffer in regions of high temperatures, a great way to control the heat in the environment, is the use of vertical gardens. This is because plants assist in humidifying the environment by holding water at its roots. In addition, the presence of plants prevents the heat of the walls from condensing inside the house, making it easier to control temperatures, especially in the summer. 

In this project, the use of a large green wall was the excellent solution to connect the balcony to other environments. Besides providing a good temperature control, visually the design was fantastic, especially with the perfect combination of the colors present in the blue upholstery and the green background of the plants, besides the whole environment is decorated with elements of wood that perfectly match the idea of keeping the environment looking natural.

Like thermal insulation, living walls, or vertical gardens, are excellent for acoustic insulation of the environment. This is because the presence of the vegetation absorbs and isolates the external and internal noises, thus avoiding the sound reverberates in the environment. This solution is great for homes that are located in large urban centers where the movement of cars and people is constant.

A good example is this project which used a beautiful green wall to serve as a background element to work acoustically on the external porch of the home. Perfectly set in classic white upholstered furniture, the vertical garden makes the setting of the environment even more beautiful and elegant.

4. Natural touch

The possibilities of covering the walls of your home are many. The most common, of course, is the use of colored paints to add a special touch to the environment. However, you can go beyond how to make the environment more colorful and protected. The natural decoration with plants gives a perfect touch to the environment, making it more colorful and alive than many types of paints available in the market. In addition, maintenance is easy and also serves as a way to hide irregularities in the wall structure.

The advantage of living walls as air filters is great. As an example, try setting a small space in your bathroom to house a small vertical garden. The difference in ambient air quality is incredible.
