There are several key aspects to green design - sustainability, eco-friendly practices and healthy environments.
Sustainable design is using renewable resources and managing natural resources so we don’t exhaust the earth’s capability to sustain us. One of the best ways to design a sustainable interior is to work with furnishings that you love. If you love it you’ll want to live with it for a really long time. This is a great alternative to redecorating every five years to follow the same trend as everyone else. The old things you discard create waste for the landfills and the new items you purchase deplete resources. Our interior designer will help you find things that you adore, made from renewable resources with quality construction so the products will last.
Using less energy and avoiding pollution are two eco-friendly practices. Many design elements such as window treatments can reduce energy consumption. There are suppliers that recycle used materials instead of sending them to a landfill. Home automation, smart appliances and the use of lighting control can also reduce electricity costs.
Healthy environments are created by carefully selecting finish materials. This is a primary concern if any inhabitants are allergy sufferers. Textiles, flooring materials, and composite furniture parts may contain dyes, glues or other chemicals that can cause unpleasant physical effects for sensitive individuals. For these projects natural fibers and organic alternatives are specified.
