Looking for easy and eco-friendly ways to spruce up your home in one of the apartments for sale in Business Bay this summer? Check out these great tips!
1. Bring the outdoors in with potted plants or flowers. Not only do they add a splash of color and life to any room, but they also help purify the air.
2. Use natural materials like bamboo, wool, and cotton for your decor. These materials are renewable and environmentally friendly.
3. Incorporate solar power into your home. Install solar panels or solar-powered lights to help save on energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
4. Let in the light! Take advantage of natural sunlight by opening curtains and blinds during the day. This will help reduce your need for artificial lighting and lower your energy bill.
5. Use fans instead of air conditioners to keep cool. Fans use less energy and are a more eco-friendly option for cooling your home.
6. Unplug electronics when you’re not using them. Even when they’re turned off, electronics can still use energy. By unplugging them, you can save money on your electric bill and help reduce your carbon footprint.
7. Educate your family and friends about eco-friendly living. The more people that are aware of the benefits of living green, the better!
8. Bring the outdoors in with potted plants and flowers. You should also take into account the decorations you employ when making efforts to be more sustainable. One of the most often used house decorations in Britain is the candle, yet many candles contain hazardous VOCs or are composed of paraffin wax, both of which release hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere. Choose candles instead that are manufactured from organic materials like soy or beeswax.
Flowers are a common décor in our homes, yet many Brits find it impractical to keep fresh flowers indoors. To avoid throwing away your fresh flowers once they’ve started to wilt, choose dried flowers (you can even do this at home). They keep considerably longer.
9. Use natural materials like bamboo, rattan, and jute for furnishings and accents.
10. Go for earthy tones and nature-inspired patterns in your fabrics and wallcoverings.
11. Consider using sustainable flooring options like cork or bamboo.
12. Incorporate energy-efficient lighting fixtures and appliances.
13. Use low-VOC paints and stains for your walls, floors, and furniture.
14. Invest in some good quality insulation to keep your home cool in the summer heat.
15. Consider solar power for your home’s energy needs.
16. Collect rainwater for watering your plants and gardens.
17. Composting is a great way to reduce your household waste.
