Why You Should Install a Green Wall in Your Office
Green walls, or as they are sometimes called, Living Walls, are walls comprised of lush greenery.
Not only are they beautiful, but they also have a wide array of benefits! From adding levels of privacy to evoking a natural, stress-free environment, there are many reasons to install a green wall.
Whether you use them as a focal point of your office or lobby or as a natural divider, below are a few of the top reasons to install a green wall.
Did you know that green walls improve air quality? Having green walls or greenery of any kind in your office is a great way to ensure old air gets cycled out more quickly. Not only that, but studies have shown that living walls can reduce noise- up to 40 decibels! This is extremely beneficial for businesses that are in a busy city and want to ensure they have a more quiet, serene office.
In addition to the above benefits, living plant walls have been said to reduce office temperatures and increase office energy efficiency. It should be noted that these benefits are mainly achieved by their position and what level of shade the walls provide.
More people are deciding to decorate with plants and living green walls, and for good reason! Living green walls are beautiful, and immediately elevate any room. The effects of greenery on mood and stress have been long studied, and many of these studies have found that greenery not only increases happiness but also decreases stress while improving productivity. Having a beautiful green wall, plus the added benefits of happiness and stress reduction, is a winning situation for all involved!
Not only are green walls beautiful to look at, but they can also serve a purpose! Living walls can be used as a way to create natural dividers in your office. Green walls are for you if you want to separate your reception area or other departments, but don’t want the look of barren walls or cubicles.
You can also use your green wall as a focal point. For a striking entryway, your green wall can be placed behind a reception desk to emphasize the area. Rather than be greeted with a blank wall, or a sign pointing towards the reception area, your clients will instead be greeted with a gorgeous green wall!
