Coming up with sustainable bedroom decor ideas doesn’t have to be difficult. By being aware of the materials used in construction, one can have a comfortable space that also remains ecologically conscious. When designing a room, consider using items that serve multiple purposes to eliminate the need for extra space.
One of the biggest areas when it comes to furnishing a bedroom that can help reduce the carbon footprint, is through the use of recycled materials; whether one chooses to reuse an old bed frame, or to opt for renewable resources, such as bamboo, for construction. Reclaimed furniture can be given new life through the use of non-toxic stains, as well as being re purposed from other areas of the home.
Consider looking at thrift stores for items, such as lamps, and storage options instead of purchasing new. Use bedding composed of renewable resources such as soy and organic cotton. When it comes to lighting use lamps with energy efficient bulbs and natural lighting from windows. Curtains help keep the temperature in a room stable and cut down on heating usage. Painting a room can be done using low-VOC paints to prevent harmful chemicals from being released into the air.
