Thinking green for home furnishings
Incorporating sustainable materials into a home decor sets the tone for an environmentally responsible lifestyle. Doing so needn't involve abandoning your sense of style or making huge changes, either.
There are a number of methods for incorporating environmentally friendly ideas into the home.
â¢Choose energy efficient appliances for kitchens and laundry areas.
â¢Consider all-natural materials, such as hemp and organic cotton, as the fabrics of choice for upholstery.
â¢Use LED or CFL lighting throughout the home.
â¢Repurpose materials from one room to another instead of buying new.
â¢Turn recycled items into pieces of art. For example, drill a hole through a plate or even a car hub cap to invent an innovative clock.
â¢Choose non-toxic natural rugs and carpets.
â¢Use natural table linens.
