Revamp Your Home With These Eco-Friendly Décor Ideas
Your home is nothing less than a sanctuary, away from the chaos of the city outside. However, given the excessive pollution and toxicity you are surrounded by, how often do you feel like you’re living in a sanctuary? How often do you find yourself reaching out for environment-friendly decor ideas? It’s time we start adapting with the changing times and switch our home decor with sustainable alternatives. Here are some easy eco-friendly decor ideas to revamp your homes –
1. Use natural elements
Adding houseplants to your living space is the simplest way to purify the air around you. Not only do plants take in carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen, but they also soak up harmful pollutants. Place a few plants in each room of the house, but carefully choose the ones that are home friendly. They add life to the apartment and look aesthetically pleasing.
2. Say no to toxic materials
Wall paint is one of the main culprits responsible for toxicity in a house. Paint fumes are among the top sources of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The good news is that with low VOCs paints available in the market, you can now reduce the risk of harm. It is also the easiest and most affordable way of giving your house a new lease of life.
3. Organic furnishings
Have you ever bought a rug or cushion cover that smells odd for weeks? It is perhaps due to off gassing. When an item gives off its chemicals over time and then stops smelling odd, it is because the chemicals have now been let out. To be safe, avoid using synthetic materials in your furnishings and stick to organic ones like jute or wool, which are not only eco-friendly, but also add texture to your living space.
4. Decorate using alternative materials
The use of wood might look great but comes with a host of issues, like chemical coatings. Most importantly, it leads to excessive deforestation and irresponsible wood harvesting. Instead, swap your kitchen counters, floors, cabinets for alternatives like bamboo, stone, glass or metal. These durable surfaces require a lot less care and maintenance.
Beauty within and outside the house have equal importance. When you invest in a property, you not only check what the house structure is like, but also what your surroundings have to offer. Devanahalli is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods to live in Bangalore. Apart from its striking landscaped beauty, some recent developments include 400-acre Devanahalli Business Park, Aerospace SEZ, Science City and the 1000-crore Financial Park. In addition to that, its close proximity to the International Airport is one of the most important advantages of this neighbourhood. Taking inspiration from the architectural wonders of Devanahalli, you can now design your homes just as beautifully. For those looking for flats in Devanahalli, House of Hiranandani presents Calgary, a luxuriously designed apartment complex offering configurations of 2 and 3 BHK spacious houses that offer ample room to decorate and build your dream home.
