SUSTAINABLE HOME DECOR: HOW TO MAKE ECO-FRIENDLY CHOICES FOR YOUR HOME

SUSTAINABLE HOME DECOR: HOW TO MAKE ECO-FRIENDLY CHOICES FOR YOUR HOME

Eco-friendly home decor is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and create a healthier living space.  To do this, we need to:

 - Choose only eco-friendly materials.
Furniture and decor made from sustainable materials such as reclaimed wood, bamboo, cork or recycled metal. These materials are renewable and have a lower environmental impact than materials such as virgin wood or plastic.

- Buy used or vintage items.

Furniture and décor at thrift stores, flea markets or online thrift sites. Vintage items add character to your space and help reduce waste by giving new life to used items.

- Avoid "quick" furniture.

Avoid inexpensive, low-quality furniture, which is often made of particleboard or other composite materials. Instead, invest in higher-quality pieces that will last. Look for furniture with sturdy construction and timeless designs that won't go out of style.

- Use natural and organic fabrics.

When choosing textiles for curtains, bedding or furniture upholstery, choose natural and organic fabrics such as organic cotton, linen, hemp or bamboo. These materials do not contain harmful chemicals, are biodegradable and are often produced in a more environmentally friendly way.

- Choose non-toxic paints and finishes.

When painting or finishing walls, furniture or cabinets, choose paints and finishes with low or no VOCs. These products release fewer harmful chemicals into the air, improving indoor air quality and minimizing your impact on the environment.

- Use energy-efficient lighting.

Use energy-saving bulbs, such as LEDs or CFLs, which use less energy and have a longer life than traditional incandescent bulbs. Install dimmers or timers to further optimize energy use.

- Incorporate plants into the interior.

Bring nature indoors by incorporating plants into your interior. Plants improve air quality, add natural beauty and create a soothing atmosphere. Choose houseplants that are low-maintenance and suitable for your lifestyle.
