The sustainable decoration is an increasingly relevant agenda and it is not just an aesthetic concept, but rather a way of cooperating with the environment in the design of a house.

Currently, there are many ways to transform an environment into something beautiful and with sustainable decoration, incorporating ways to avoid excessive energy use, water and using parts and materials that do not further deteriorate the planet.

According to businesswoman Priscila Prieto, expert Planned Furniture and decoration for apartments, taking advantage of natural light is one of the keys to creating an environment based on sustainability. “Lampshades, light fixtures and chandeliers can be beautiful and there is nothing to disagree about that. But it's important to use them, only, when the sun can't do its lighting job. Optimize sunlight with well-placed windows, choosing ideal curtains for adequate lighting and relocating furniture according to this need are fundamental steps to optimize the impact of natural light. It should be noted that natural lighting, in addition to providing us with numerous health benefits, It’s also a great way to get into a sustainable lifestyle and save on your energy bill.”, reports.


The specialist states that the use of natural materials, such as wood and fibers, is a crucial point in the concept of sustainable decoration. “In addition to making any environment more beautiful and comfortable, the use of this type of resource in decoration is a great trend. However, before anything else, choose products made with sustainable wood, of companies that follow national standards and are references in the market. After all, using certified natural resources ensures that the damage caused to nature is completely controlled and that there is a policy that involves reforestation or recovery of what is collected for use. It is very important to be aware of what is withdrawn from exhaustible natural resources, because different from sunlight, wood, if not replanted, can cause serious harm to the environment., scores.

It is possible to take a piece that is no longer used and, with the necessary changes, turn it into something that is exactly what was missing for a decoration to be perfect. Adopting a sustainable decoration is not as difficult as it seems and, with simple attitudes, it is possible to do more for our environment without having to invest a lot of money for it”, concludes the decoration specialist and founder of Prieto Móveis.
