Eco-friendly ideas for decorating and furnishing your home
1. Plants decorate your home rather than anything else
Plants filter the air in your home and remove all the toxic elements you breathe in. Apart from that, it gives a fresh ambiance to your rooms. The more the plants in your home the more energetic and fresh you will feel. You can choose plants you like but we would recommend using Bamboo palms and peace lilies for better indoor air quality.
2. Let there be more windows and more sunlight
Most of the houses we see have a minimal number of windows and hence transmission of light into the rooms will be extremely poor. This would bring down the positive energy of the house to a large extent as there is no light or energy in those rooms. In eco-friendly interior designs blending in with nature is a vital element. Including more windows and making them face south would invite more light. This would help you not to the pollutants emitting electric lights. Also, eco-friendly windows are available in the market these days which will protect you from the harmful UV radiation from entering your home.
3. Switching to energy efficient lighting
Most of the ordinary light bulbs you use at home emit pollutants that are not good for your health. So in eco-friendly interior designs, it’s necessary to use pollutant free and energy efficient lighting system. You can use fluorescent lamps or LED bulbs instead of ordinary bulbs as they are pollutant-free and have a long life too. Also, more focus should be given to including natural light wherever you can. Incorporating table lamps, chandeliers etc. are also another way to go for energy efficient lighting.
4. Say no to plastic and chromed metal
It’s no news that plastics aren’t eco-friendly at all. In almost all places of the world, strong movements have been going on to eliminate plastic completely. So your eco-friendly home too should also say a big no to plastics as they are not easy to recycle. Chromed metal is also not recommended as it is considered as a serious pollutant.
5. Go for eco-friendly paintings and wall coverings
The truth is every single thing we use in our homes contain pollutants so it’s impossible to eliminate it completely but choosing things that are more friendly to the environment can be done and this is what we should go by while opting for eco-friendly interiors. This can be applied while choosing the painting as well. Go for paints that contain fewer amounts of VOC’s and water-based paints are the best in that case.
