Eco-Friendly Home Decor

When making the final touches to any room in your dream home, try and use these eco-friendly home accessories. From a Lotus flower chandelier to eco-friendly wallpaper, you can decorate any room and be at home with nature.

Let the Sunlight In

Not only does using the sunlight instead of regular lights reduce your energy bill, but it also is healthier for both you and the environment. This home design idea can be achieved by simply pulling back the curtains in your home or by keeping the windows open! It only takes a small change to make a big difference in your home.

Use Energy-Efficient Lighting

Now when the sun goes down, and you need light, use energy-efficient lights! Use compact fluorescent light bulbs to help you save energy. You can take it a step further by adding timers to your lights so that a light is never left on in your home all night long or over a weekend.

Choose Products with Low VOC Content

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are harmful to your family’s health, not to mention the environment’s health. These compounds can be found in certain paints, household products, furniture and carpet. So, next time you’re buying something for your new home, look for the items that don’t emit VOC or have low VOC content.

These are just a few home design ideas that embody the eco-friendly mindset of Caliterra living.
