Thinking green for home furnishings

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

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.

•Choose energy efficient appliances for kitchens and laundry areas.

•Consider all-natural materials, such as hemp and organic cotton, as the fabrics of choice for upholstery.

•Use LED or CFL lighting throughout the home.

•Repurpose materials from one room to another instead of buying new.

•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.

•Choose non-toxic natural rugs and carpets.

•Use natural table linens.
