The best way to level up your home is by having a living wall. You‘ve seen such design in hotels, corporate offices, airports and possibly café & restaurants. The living walls, also called Green walls or vertical garden design have become increasingly popular these days. Most of the green walls we can see indoors are an artificial green wall but still provide the same vibes- naturally relaxes our mind & body.
If you’re planning to have one here’s some tips you can rely on:

First things first! Determine the location where you wanted to build your living wall. In Sydney, the artificial green wall is more popular indoors. This is to provide an accent within their home, providing an eco-friendly ambiance. While others choose to have it installed outdoor mixed with their vertically designed garden.
Other homeowners rather have outdoor artificial green walls in their terrace with their coffee table where they can work or simply relax.
