Coming into 2017 we are now more than ever concerned with where our home comforts and home necessities come from. Many people are very eco-conscious and want to use only products that are not harmful to use and don’t negatively impact the world we live in. With that in mind, let’s looks at some of the ways to enhance your home in an ecological way.
Eco-friendly washing powder
One of the simplest ways to enhance your living environment in your home is to use natural non-synthetic materials which are also less toxic in the longer term. These add much more comfort to the time you get to spend in your space and in the longer term are better for you and your loved ones. It is also good to note that washing powders are often toxic so always be mindful of what kind you use on your bedding, sheets, rugs and alike the kind of vapours that are released by your body heat while you are sleeping. Throws are always a good touch to bring a sparkle of coloring into your space but bearing in mind the above.
Non-synthetic air fresheners
Silk, cotton and alike are best to bring a more natural feel as well as the non-toxic aspect. An old sofas can be given a new lease of life with a throw cast over it without any effort apart from choosing the look you are aiming for. Charity shops are a good cheap way of finding something within your budget no matter what you have to work with. Tie-dyes are incredibly effective to this means and frankly look great for the most part. Buying a new sofa is going to be an expensive way to create that new look and feel to your space when this method works cheaply and immediately. Essential oils are an amazing addition to any space providing not just nice smells but they can also enhance your health in the process. When choosing an oil a little bit of research goes a long way ()

Making your space that bit more special
Lamp shades help a lot in the lighting an atmosphere in the room it’s just a case of choosing to one you best prefer. Light bulbs are another way of changing the light colour in the rooms. A simple change goes a long way and with the choices available today there are many shades to choose from as well as the kinds of light they put out from incandescent to LED (Light Emitting Diodes) in fact some of the fitting I have seen of late also include colour changing LED’s which run thru a series of settings that are pre-reprogrammed.
