Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, we can all do our bit to be more sustainable.
Fortunately, antique and vintage décor is a wonderful option for interior designers. Furniture and decorative items can be repurposed, refinished or refurbished to give them new life. ‘Up-cycling’ is trendy and many items can be sourced and used to great effect. For the truly environmentally conscious one can always go further – flooring, carpets, fabrics, even sinks and counter tops can be made from recycled materials.

Clever interior design can incorporate windows and skylights to maximise the use of daylight and minimise artificial light. Obviously the most sustainable is natural light but when it is necessary you can carefully consider the type of lighting you use. LEDs and compact fluorescent light bulbs save energy and last longer. Using dimmers and timing switches can all help to make lighting more environmentally friendly – some of these practices are not yet available with all energy efficient bulbs but the way is being paved. The building industry is committed to reducing the environmental impact of lighting; new buildings now include lighting regulation from the outset.
The World of Interior Design is constantly evolving and improving to reflect demand as we all become more environmentally aware and we love sourcing such products.
