6 tips for an eco-friendly interior design makeover!



Home or workspace designing is not merely on aesthetics but it also includes the proper usage and choice of items and materials to be used.

Designing a space with the environment and the people's well-being in mind is called sustainable designing.
So, if you want to achieve an eco-friendly interior, here are some tips to help you. Read on and learn from them.

1. Use furniture made from natural or recycled materials.
For example, look for wood with the Forest Stewardship Council certification stamp to ensure you’re not using an endangered species for your furniture. 

Of course the majority of our wooden furniture is FSC certified: our wood comes from well-managed forests, trees are replanted and biodiversity is protected.

Not to mention our latest new entry, FOREST OCEAN: our sound-absorbing panel now available in Sealife fabric, made from SEAQUAL® YARN certified recycled polyester, containing upcycled marine plastic.

2. Choose only products originally designed to be easy dismantled when no longer in use.
Wood and metal are the core natural elements of the circular economy, as well as our most used materials: by applying the principles of the circular economy, all our products are designed and made to be easily disposed of.

Our manufacturing method allows to reduce waste, keep materials in use and regenerate natural systems.

3. Use natural textiles & finishings.
The best fabrics are hypoallergenic, biodegradable and recyclable, odour and dust resistant, moisture-absorbent and anti-bacterial.

Our tip: choose natural fibres or recycled fabrics for your furniture and wood, ceramic or cork for your wall finishings. It would be a great choice!

4. Bring a little of the outside into your space by using plants as decorations.
Nothing could be much better than placing plants in your house or office. Plants provide oxygen, and filter out harmful chemicals from the air. Plus, they offer a natural beauty, ambience and freshness, bringing a little of the outside into your space.

5. Use old-school formulae or try eco-friendly brands for your cleaners.
Ensure you’re not cleaning your space with toxic cleaners, or all this hard work will be undone!
Making your own natural cleaning products is cheap, easy and effective; for example, vinegar tops the charts and works so well because its acid kills bacteria and destroys mold and grease. You can also use baking soda, lemon juice, cooking oils, etc.
Not into making your own cleaners? Love an easier life? Choose natural cleaning companies!

6. Free your windows of heavy blinds or curtains and take full advantage of natural light.
Let sunlight in: using daylight in lieu of electrical lighting can be of great advantage to you because it can save electrical bills and prevent the emission of pollutants.

If you don’t have huge windows, opt for LED system lighting that can help you save energy and electrical power. For example, our suspended sound absorbing panels FOREST and ECHO Cloud can be integrated with an efficient CE electrical certificated LED lighting system: a useful and stylish solution.
