Invest in eco-friendly bedding
Invest in sustainable bedding, like stonewashed linen or organic cotton, the first and most comfortable step to making your bedroom more eco-friendly.
Eco-friendly bedding is both good for the environment and highly breathable and comfortable. This is especially beneficial if you live in a hot climate or suffer from night sweats. Although durable bedding may cost a little more than traditional bedding sets, the excellent quality and 100% cotton means it will last a very long time. It’s a worthwhile investment.
Decorate with nature friendly To paint
Are you planning to redecorate your bedroom with a fresh splash of paint? Using green products is essential if you want to have a sustainable bedroom. Traditional paint contains a lot of harmful toxins and contaminants that are harmful to the environment and to you. Non-toxic, low-VOC paints are the best option, and they’re environmentally friendly and safe around children and pets.
Use Low consumption Lighting
Are your bedroom lights energy efficient? Although we depend on modern luxuries such as light, you can choose eco-friendly lighting to create a sustainable habitat in your bedroom. Make sure all your lights and lamps use energy efficient bulbs. Create good habits for turning off the lights when you leave the room. Use timers if you want the lights to be on at certain times for security reasons.
Go Green – Literally
Bedroom decorating ideas don’t have to depend on manufactured goods. You can beautify your room with beautiful indoor plants to create a more eco-friendly environment. Adding greenery to your room allows you to decorate with organic rather than artificial materials. Indoor plants also work to purify the air and create a calm environment. What more could you want?
Picking out Ecological furniture
Last but not least, why not opt for eco-friendly furniture? For example, a reclaimed wood bed will pair perfectly with your stonewashed linen and organic cotton sheets. Put effort into DIY furniture that reuses and recycles instead of always buying new things. For example, you can use pallets for beds or sofas or repurposed wine crates for storage. The possibilities are endless with a little creativity and hard work!
Round Your Room in an eco paradise
The best thing about a sustainable bedroom is that you can always relax in luxury. You won’t skimp on comfort, from eco-friendly bedding and organic cotton pillows to reclaimed furniture and beautiful indoor plants.
