Interior design: the sustanaible way
We are now moving towards a sustainable future, through the use of renewable resources, materials, and new production processes. There are many innovations in terms of natural resources, renewable energies, recycling, and creative reuse of old stuff. Sustainable interior design is based on all of these.
The trend towards living more sustainably is central to the economic and social development of our cities as we need to save our planet by improving living conditions.
Reusing objects reduce costs and waste. Creativity and imagination are fundamental to reinvent old objects by giving them a new function and a different image.
A new style of living
When a house has a low environmental impact? First of all, is needed to choose only pieces of furniture that have a positive impact on the planet and that help to manage energy more efficiently.
Sustainable interior design focuses on reducing the environmental impact of a product by using eco-friendly materials and product development criteria that are guided by the principles of environmental sustainability.
Eco-friendly interior design, living is becoming increasingly green
To respect definite criteria for production processes, such as building a shorter supply chain, reduces consumption, and has a lower impact on the environment.
The impact on the environment for the acquisition of the raw material is also decreased, as well as the energy consumption to produce the final product.
There is less waste at the end of the process and an increase of recycled materials.
Environmentally friendly materials
Wood is one of the best materials that can be used in sustainable interior design. That’s because it is less handled and therefore used in its natural appearance (so no painting booth used), plus it has a strong natural look. In construction, it is used for thermal and acoustic insulation. Then there is cork, which can be used for insulation.
Some tips to follow
It is important to respect basic rules to make our homes greener. For example, it is useful to have green plants, both as decoration and for more purified air, or we can increase the brightness of the house by using ad hoc materials for curtains. It is also important to use energy-saving light bulbs, products with a low content of volatile organic compounds, and to install insulating windows.
