Interior Design Trends : Green Living

For many people decorating their home or a room in their house is something they undertake on a regular basis. If you are thinking about remodeling a room

in your home maybe now is the time to start thinking about

how you can go about it in a greener way.

There are paints that are available that do not have any chemicals in them, which in turn means that this is safer for the environment and yourself as well. And if you are looking to replace flooring, then you seriously might want to consider using cork. Cork is a very versatile medium and can be colored to fit in with the overall design and the color scheme of your room. I love this blue floor in the boy's bedroom.

If you are in the market for furniture that is made from wood, try and make sure that the wood came from a sustainable source, which in turn will have much less of an environmental impact. It is also a good idea to visit shops that sell second hand furniture and other household items. This kind of recycling is very good for the environment, and the other benefit is that they cost substantially less than buying new. These Regency chairs were purchased on ebay.

Another excellent way of finding things you want is by doing a search on the Internet. If you are looking for second hand curtains, do a quick search online for ready made curtains at a very reasonable price.

Check out Curtain Wizard for a superb range of ready made curtains,

lined and unlined, in a stunning range of colors and patterns

to suit all styles of homes beautifully.
