If you’re becoming tired of pottering around the same old setting every day, with the same old colours and the same old layout, it could be time to redecorate your home to make it a more enjoyable space for you to be in. More and more people these days are becoming eco-friendly, as they know just how much this matters to preserve our planet and keep it going – why don’t you get in on the act? Decorate your home in an eco friendly way, and save the world while you’re at it. You could be an eco-friendly superhero (how about calling yourself green-man or eco-dude?)!

Find A Use for Old Items

Before you even think about going shopping for new home decor, take a look around your home (even in the loft) to see if you have any items that you can reuse or find a new use for. There are loads of ways you can find a use for old things! You could refurbish your old cabinets by sanding them and painting them to create new versions at a fraction of the cost, and use items for unexpected things too; like old suitcases as a bedside table or an old fruit crate as a shelf. You could even make use of old glass bottles – don’t throw them away, spray paint them and make a unique vase out of them! Use your imagination and you can do an unlimited amount of things and create an amazing look.

Use Eco-friendly Paint and Wallpaper

Sometimes all you need to update the look of your home is a few sheets of wallpaper and a couple of tins of paint. Traditional products can have more harmful products in them, so by opting for more eco-friendly versions you’ll be doing the planet a favour. Not only will you save the planet, you’ll save your family from health problems further down the line too!

Replace Old Bulbs with Led’s

Good lighting will make a huge different to how your home looks. Led lights are much more eco friendly than traditional lights, plus they make for great task lighting. Your energy consumption will be reduced, and the bulbs will even last longer than normal.

Buy Green Furnishings

Well, not literally green! Invest in items that are made from natural materials to do your bit for the planet. You can find some truly stunning designs out there! They’ll last a lot longer than normal furniture too, so try to see it as an investment. Add flowers to the inside of your home to create a fresh look that carries on with the natural theme. You can also find beautiful, natural looking home accessories at The Painted Bird.

See? It’s so easy to do your bit for the planet and save the world just by decorating your home in a more eco-friendly way. To carry on being eco-friendly once the decorating is over, you should make sure you turn things off when not in use such as the lights and bathroom tap, recycle everything you possibly can, and layer up warm before turning the heating on. You’ll save money too!
