Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a lovely time ,I’m back after the festive period with a brand new post all about the bedroom and how to make it luxe yet sustainable at the same time
Luxe style while being eco friendly? I hear you say! yes It is very possible!
Who doesn't want to upgrade their sleeping quarters into a luxury haven, perfect for relaxing? Of course, doing so in an eco-conscious and sustainable way can be tricky. After all, those cheap accessories and duvet set may seem like a bargain but they could be doing the environment untold harm. Luckily, there's a way to achieve a balance between style and substance in this area, and it is as simple as following the steps below. Read on to find out more.
Step 1: LED lights
One way to upgrade your bedroom space is to consider the lighting that you have in there. Sadly, most people just stick with the main central light and perhaps a bedside lamp for reading at a push. However, such a setup doesn't quite smack of the luxury edge that we are going for here.
To that end, why not move or add additional lighting features into your bedroom? You may wish to try a chandelier style feature, as they can add drama to a larger space. Alternatively, why not try lengthening the cable and changing the shade on a central light, as even such a simple change can make all the difference. Of course when it comes to being eco-friendly be sure that you are picking fittings that can be used with LED bulbs. The reason is that they use less electricity, and last way longer than the regular kind. Therefore even the most luxurious setup will be guaranteed to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Step 2: Bedding
No bedroom would be complete without the right bedding, and luxurious linens are a must if you are aiming to create a high-end space. You will have noticed too that it's even possible to get some soft and comfortable duvet covers and sheets without spending a fortune. However, it's crucial to remember that many of the cheaper mass produced items are made in a very environmentally irresponsible way.
That is why it is crucial that you research suitable bedding types like those made from Tencel fabric before you make your choice. Now, you may well be asking yourself what is Tencel bedding, especially if you haven't heard of it before. Well, it's a fabric that is not only soft on the skin and holds its colour for a long time but one that is also being manufactured sustainably. This is something that means by using it in your redecoration, you will know your bedroom will be as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible.
Step 3: Preloved and vintage items
Next, when it comes to decorating your room, there is no better way to achieve a luxury finish than to use vintage and antique furniture. After all, baroque carved wooden pieces in oak or gilded practically ooze luxe and are some of my favourite style of vintage furniture. Of course, by using pre-loved pieces either in their original state or restored and upcycled, you are choosing a much more eco-friendly option as well. This is because no additional energy or resources are needed to make such pieces, and as an added bonus you are preventing them from ending up in a landfill as well. Double win!
How would you add some eco luxe to your bedroom?
