How To Add Eco-Friendly Touches To Your Home

If you are moving into a new home or looking to refresh your current home, why not consider switching to eco-friendly alternatives? Whether it’s furnishings, decor or products, there are plenty of non-toxic and environmentally-friendly options for you to choose from, making your home beautiful on the outside as well as inside.
 

These choices will not only impact your home-living but also your environment, having a positive impact on your future choices as well as benefiting the home's habitants.
 

In this blog post we’re going to share some of our favourite ways to add eco-friendly touches within the home so you can get started on your next DIY project or purchase.

 

Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

With the popularity of ‘cleanfluencers’ and Mrs Hinch, it’s safe to say that the country has gone cleaning mad! As the demand for cleaning products increased, so did the need for eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning products.
 

By switching to environmentally friendly cleaning tools and products, you’ll be exposing yourself and your family to fewer risks as some toxic products have harsh side effects. The ingredients within the product itself are curated so they are biodegradable and without having a negative effect on the environment. This means the switch will be beneficial to both you and the planet! It's a win-win.
 

Some of our favourite eco-friendly cleaning brands include Method, Colt and Willow and Astonish.
 

LED Lighting

If your home doesn’t currently have LED light bulbs, it may be the perfect time o switch. The advantages of LED lighting are endless and could be the easiest switch to make when it comes to making your home more environmentally friendly.

 

Benefits of LED Lighting

  • Last longer than other bulbs
  • Capable of turning 70% of energy into light, rather than heat
  • High level of brightness
  • Options for different colours
  • Low heat output
  • Great for task lighting

Thermal Blinds and Curtains

With most of the heat in your home exiting through windows, your energy bill will be significantly reduced if you opted for thermal lined blinds or curtains. With thermal window coverings, your home will be better insulated, keep it warmer in the cooler months and cooler in the warmer month. Therefore making the switch will allow your home to be more energy efficient.
 

Our vast range of thermal energy saving blinds offers a whole host of options for everyone's interior design taste, aesthetic and requirements. From roller blinds, roman blinds and vertical blinds, there are so many products to choose from.
