Sustainable interior design: 7 tips for environmentally friendly design

by @industrialkonzept Team

At a time when protecting the environment is becoming increasingly important, more and more people are looking for ways to make environmentally friendly choices in their everyday lives - including when furnishing their homes. Sustainable interior design is a great way to reduce your environmental impact while creating a stylish and functional home. Here are some tips on how to incorporate sustainable principles into your interior design:

1. use recycled materials

An easy way to promote sustainable interior design is to use recycled materials in your living space. Look for furniture, decorations and accessories that are made from reclaimed or recycled materials. Upcycling is also a great option for transforming used items into unique and eco-friendly treasures.

2. choose durable furniture

Go for high-quality furniture that will last a long time. Durable furniture helps to reduce waste as it needs to be replaced less often. Look for materials and workmanship that are robust and hard-wearing so that they will still look and function well after many years.

3. energy-efficient lighting

Energy-efficient lighting is another important aspect of sustainable interior design. Replace conventional light bulbs with LED bulbs, which consume less energy and last longer. Also, make the most of daylight by adjusting curtains and blinds to capture natural light and reduce the need for artificial lighting.

4. use natural materials

Incorporate natural materials such as wood, bamboo, linen and cotton into your interior. These materials are biodegradable and generally have a lower environmental impact than synthetic alternatives. They also give your home a warm and natural feel.

5. second-hand shopping

Consider buying second-hand furniture and decorations. Second-hand shopping is not only cost-effective, but also reduces the demand for newly produced furnishings. By browsing vintage stores or online marketplaces, you can find unique treasures with history.

6. upcycling projects

Use your creativity and start upcycling projects to transform unused items in your home. An old wooden board can become a wall shelf, a disused basket can serve as a flower pot - the possibilities are endless. Upcycling not only promotes sustainability, but also adds a personal touch to your interior design.

7. choose local and ethical products

Support local craftspeople and designers who use environmentally friendly materials and production methods. Buy products that are made under fair working conditions and do not contain harmful chemicals. By choosing local and ethical products, you are promoting sustainable practices and contributing to positive change.

By following these tips for sustainable interior design, you can not only make your living space more environmentally friendly, but also help to protect our environment. Consciously designing your home can not only be stylish, but also sustainable.
