Four R's of Eco-Friendly Design

Going green has never been easier, or looked better, thanks to the 4 R’s of Eco-Friendly Design. By reducing waste in your kitchen, reusing everyday items in your living room, and utilizing recycled materials in the bathroom, you can reinvigorate your entire interior with ease. Pretty soon, you’ll be Mother Nature’s most stylish friend!

Designed Reduction

Reducing your food waste is incredibly eco-friendly; just think about all the energy it takes to grow, ship, store, and dispose of our food. And it might sound crazy, but you can cut food waste significantly in your home with just a little interior design— refrigerator interior design, that is! To start, create two established zones on each shelf of your fridge; meat on one side, prepared ingredients on the other, beverages on one side, leftovers on the other, etc. Then, tidy those zones up with clear, plastic shelf organizers and glass, air-tight containers. This will not only reduce your carbon footprint by making you more aware and accountable of your food items, it’ll make a major style impression anytime anyone opens the fridge door!

Pro-Tip: Go green like the pros with a glass-paned refrigerator that not only looks stunning, it reduces energy waste and food waste as well! Seeing what lies inside without ever having to open the door keeps the fridge from running overtime, and keeps your food fresher, longer.

Creative Re-Use

Unleash your creativity in the name of eco-friendliness by saving household items that might otherwise go to waste, and turning them into one-of-a-kind style statements! A simple way to start? Save some empty bottles or jars and fill ‘em with string lights or fresh flowers, re-paint some old wooden crates for stylish shelving, or find anything else that could become an easy, green accent! By DIY-ing your own artistic décor accents instead of buying new ones, you can ensure your newfound style has virtually zero environmental impact.

Pro-Tip: For an extra boost of eco-friendly style, adorn your new décor pieces with natural accents! Think beautiful shells, pebbles, driftwood, or anything else that catches your eye—you could even turn leftover granite partials from your countertops into stylish drink coasters!

Recycled Style

Recycling is one of the easiest ways to help protect the environment—so why not use recycled materials for your next style update?! Luckily, reclaimed wood, recycled glass, mixed metals and cork are becoming increasingly popular and cost effective, so you don’t have to choose between going green or going stylish anymore. Recycled glass has quickly become one of our favorite materials, what with its vibrant pops of color and a shimmery finish, and all it takes is a few tiles of this eco-fabulous material to turn your backsplash into a stunning homage to Mother Nature!

Pro-Tip: To take recycling to the next level, check out recycled glass kitchen countertops! With this material topping your surfaces, you can say goodbye to cutting boards and hello to a stylish, clean, and green new kitchen!

Reinvigorated Rooms

To reinvigorate your home in an entirely eco-friendly way, skip the furniture store and give your existing furniture a brand-new beginning! Believe it or not, your years-old desks, bookshelves and chairs can come alive again with just a few simple updates. Give a blasé dresser some fresh new style with a layer of eco-friendly chalk paint, and add some antiqued knobs for an entirely new look. Top it off with a couple of oxygen-rich potted plants and your space will truly feel like a breath of fresh air!

Pro-Tip: If you love the idea of re-invigorating your old furniture, but don’t want to do it yourself, let the local pros at Studio 184 in Wisconsin do it for you! They’ll breathe new life into your old pieces, reinvigorate your space, and make you and your entire interior a true friend of the environment.
