When you want an eco-friendly home décor, there are a lot of sacrifices to make and a lot of work to be done on your current décor. For starters, all that plastic around the house should immediately disappear. Plastic is the least environmentally friendly substance you can keep in the house as its particles dissolve and pollute the quality of air over time. If you are going to surround yourself with something, at least make sure that none of it harms the quality of life and health that you are used to. And remember, décor comes to stay for a long, long time, so whatever you choose should be safe to keep and nice to view. And don’t think that by putting ‘green’ on your decorations will limit your options. On the contraire, only your imagination will be limiting when choosing them.
Clear up space
In order to bring in the new home décor, first you should clear up some space and even clean up the cleared space. Take furniture and decorations that go against your green approach and sell them to flea markets, make a yard sale, or just donate them to charity. And then endeavour in a suitable amount of home cleaning to dust up whatever is left and make space to welcome your new possessions.
If you want to spare other homes from the chance of polluting themselves by buying your decorations, then you can simply get a clearance service and send all the recyclable materials for recycling. That way you will know that you are helping both yourself and the environment. The house cleaning required after that doesn’t have to be thorough, though you can put some effort to make sure everything is shiny.
Your new décor
One thing you can always make use of are the timeless decorations. Nature itself is a great provider of décor which you can implement in the home without worrying that you will bring harm either to yourself or the environment. Jars of colorful stones from the beach or riverside, various seashells organized above the fireplace, or strung up into hanging decorations, coral in glass cups with paper ribbons as complementing decorations. The options are so many, and none of them will have you deal with chemicals or other polluting agents.
Glass items can be suitable for any decoration. You can implement them when you need a vase, for instance. Or, if you are patient and creative enough, you can build your own decoration inside a bottle, like old school craftsmen did once upon a time. Speaking of creativity, it will get you everywhere if you need to make decorations for your walls. You can provide paintings with your own hands and display the art that you created. All you need is blank paper and paint. Have your own imagination give you the perfect decoration. Plants are, of course, a perfect source of decoration, and they promise a good air circulation as well.
Creating a home full of green home decorations is not impossible at all. It is actually fairly simple: get rid of the polluting items like plastic, and add organic décor. This also makes home cleaning much better as you won’t have to use commercial cleaners that also bring toxins to the home. Keep the home clean and safe, and in tune with nature at all times with just a little imagination.
