Often, it’s to exercise more often and eat less, but what about helping improve the environment by reducing our carbon footprint?
At Arc Design Services Ltd, we’ve put together some simple ways for you to become a better steward of nature!
Decorate with plants - Nothing could be much better than placing plants in your home. Plants can help filter air and can aid in removing harmful chemicals within your home, whilst also making a perfect accessory and giving your home a natural and fresh feel.
Eco-friendly wall coverings - Choose paints that don’t emit harmful substances. Certain wallpapers, wood panels, cork or ceramic tiles are all eco-friendly products. Aside from being green, these materials can make your walls and home look great!
Try eco-friendly flooring - If you’re considering new flooring for your home, why not try eco-friendly flooring? When it comes to sustainable flooring, there are many options to choose from. Bamboo flooring is a very sustainable, eco-friendly flooring material, and it is also becoming an attractive alternative to hardwood flooring. How about considering stone or even marble, which can also add more appeal to the home’s interior.
Use energy efficient lighting - Using energy efficient lighting can help you save energy as well as money!. When you’re looking for lighting options, don't forget to check the labels and choose those that are energy-efficient.
The reasons why you should choose to update your home in an eco-friendly way are endless.
