Using artificial green walls for homes is a great way to introduce colour into your life without needing to worry about any ongoing maintenance, especially if you’re not particularly green-fingered. But what is the best way of going about it? Where should you install a green wall to have the most impact? Ultimately it will be down to personal preference, but here are five planted wall ideas to consider when choosing your design.
1. A Green Wall on a Fence
Fencing in your garden can look unappealing, especially if it’s been there for a while. While functional, it probably doesn’t do much for the overall aesthetic of your garden. Why not install an artificial green wall on the fence to make a real feature of it. Our plant wall panels are completely natural looking and will seamlessly blend in with the rest of the planting in your garden. And, because our green walls are relatively lightweight, especially compared to real planting, most fences should be strong enough to support them without any additional bracing.

2. A Green Wall in a Bathroom
You want your fake living wall to look completely natural, and so what better way than it getting a splash of water on it? Not only can the panels improve the whole interior design of the space, but they can help you feel energised in the morning. Studies have shown that having planting around the house makes you feel better, and so why not go big and go for a whole wall?
3. A Green Wall Next to a Swimming Pool
Ok, so we’re not all lucky enough to have our own swimming pool. But for those of us that do, it can be the ultimate relaxation spot. By introducing a faux living wall alongside the pool, you can create the perfect chill-out spot, perfect for a dip of entertaining guests. Just by having an artificial green wall next to your pool, you’re adding to the luxury, creating an experience to be enjoyed by all. Vistafolia’s green walls are tested to the highest standards on the market, so there’s never any concerns about longevity in the sun, or it being affected by the chemicals from the pool.
4. A Green Wall on a Balcony or Terrace
While often functional and a great link between indoor and outdoor in spaces where a garden might not be possible, if you want to be closer to nature, you’ll probably find that it’s just not the same as a green space. By adding a fake plant wall to your balcony or terrace, you can still have your own piece of Eden, but without any concern regarding the longevity or suitability of the planting. Protected by our 5-year warranty, our green plant walls are perfectly suited to areas where wind exposure or strong sunlight might be prevalent. It might also give you the added benefit of a bit of extra privacy, especially if your balcony or terrace is overlooked by others.

5. A Green Wall in a bedroom
You may not even have considered the possibility of using an artificial green wall in a bedroom. But there’s absolutely no reason not to. Why spend hours choosing the right paint when you could add a few green wall panels and instantly become the envy of your friends. Even having a small green wall could instantly transform the room into your own little urban jungle, but without the need to ever worry about watering or pruning.
