‘Everyone can do simple things to make a difference, and every little bit does count’ – Stella McCartney
Of the many ways that a home can be made special, making sure that it is eco-friendly and sustainable ranks very high. For a home to feel sustainable, stylish and eco-friendly, you must think outside the box and come up with creative ideas that are both functional and aesthetically please. To get the wheel in motion, here are some eco-friendly home decor ideas that will provide both creative and environmental touches that will make your home green and filled with love.
Use energy saving light bulbs for the perfect lighting that brings your home alive at any point of the day. Oh, and we we mention, that these are super in trend at the moment?
Up-cycle old furniture, fixtures and other reusable items of home decor whenever you can for a chic and a sustainable look.
Go for natural instead of artificial lights where ever possible, it saves energy, it’s sustainable and there’s something about sunlight that can make any room look fabulous.
While picking linens for decoration or utilization purposes, go for organic instead of inorganic products.
If you have old and used bottles lying around, give them a new lease of life by converting them into something useful, like vases. It’s good for the environment and works as a great DIY decor idea that the entire family can get involved in.
Yet another lighting solution that is both eco-friendly and incredibly stylish and quirky. Use old and rusty cans to make chandeliers and bedside lamps, you’ll utilize the cans which would otherwise have accumulated as waste material while creating something that is entirely unique and one of a kind, simultaneously. The same would apply to empty wine glasses, mason jars and the likes.
Reduce, reuse, recycle, that should be the motto of every home owner. At the end of the day, happiness is knowing that you have a home that looks beautiful and is sustainable at the same time.
