The Ultimate Guide to Sustainable Materials

There are quite a few things you need to consider when choosing sustainable materials for interior design. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered. This is DECO’s ultimate guide to sustainable design.
Your home is your nesting place, a safe haven from the realities that lie outside your front door. You want it to be warm, inviting and healthy. Research indicates that certain building features such as daylight, connection to nature, and spaces for social interaction, appear to have a positive psychological and social benefit. Reduced stress, improved emotional functioning, increased communication and an improved sense of belonging are some of these benefits.

Sustainable interior design ideas emphasise the importance of improving the quality of your life, health and well-being by changing your indoor environment. It?s about implementing environmentally responsible designs into your interior setting. Improving how you live now and in the future, by avoiding depletion of our planet?s natural resources. Sustainable interior design ideas are interior designs where all the materials are intended to create an ecological balance with nature.
Environmentally conscious designs attempt to create indoor spaces that are environmentally sustainable and healthy for you and your family. It?s important you do your research before buying sustainable design elements. Here?s our quick guide to getting started.

There are 3 dimensions to sustainable interior design, each offering a different level of impact to the environment and your quality of life. 1. Global sustainable interior design focuses on minimising negative effects and maximising positive effects on the global environment as a whole.
2. Indoor environmental quality considers the sustainability of interior environments. Improving indoor air quality and reducing indoor air pollutants. Improving thermal comfort and interior lighting.
3. Sustainable materials: Materials that minimise resources used and waste generated during the production process.

Because we spend most of our time indoors, interior design plays a key role in helping create functional spaces that improve our health and general level of satisfaction. Sustainability offers a long-term balance between your everyday life and the environment you live in.

Material selection: Sustainable materials limit the use of fossil fuels during its composition and provides optimal performance for its application. Some examples include:

All natural, low-maintenance and sustainable materials such as linoleum, cork and bamboo flooring. It?s durable and renewable.
Eco-friendly countertops, made up of recycled glass, paper and plastic.
Sustainable textiles and natural fibres, such as hemp, flax, soy, wool and camel.
