Owner as well as interior designer at Decorating Den, Katie O’Dwyer says that going eco-friendly with one’s house is as simple as eating organic food or following simple green habits. It gives you a soothing feeling to realize that you are surrounded by products that are good for the environment. One of the biggest advantages of switching to eco-friendly home décor is that it gives you a variety of attractive options to choose from. More and more shops are stocking up with this option which gives you quite a few alternatives to make your choice.
Katie further said that eco friendly products are gaining popularity as the range of products being made available to the customers is growing. There is an eco-friendly alternative in every category be it lights, paints, fabric, wall coverings, accessories or furniture. Buying furniture that is made from natural fabrics is a good choice. Apart from that consumers can also shop from manufacturers who are a part of Sustainable Furniture Council.
These days fabrics are created from natural and recycled materials. These fabrics are also treated as well as given the final touch with environmentally approved or water-based dyes which do not pose any threat to the nature.
When it comes to choosing the paint for your walls, it is good to stick to low VOC paint which does not contain too many chemicals or odor. Another option that you have for your wall is that of wall coverings made of natural grass cloth. It is not just environment friendly but also adds texture, beauty and warmth to your house.
