Eco-Friendly Window Coverings
Choosing eco-friendly décor options doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. When it comes to window coverings, you don’t have to compromise. You can do your part and have beautifully accentuated windows. Being eco-friendly isn’t a trend or a fad. It’s a lifestyle commitment. No matter if you’re new to being eco-friendly or you have many years of experience under your belt, here are your options for eco-friendly window treatments.
Bamboo or Woven Shades
Choosing natural materials for your window coverings, like bamboo, will complement any style, from rustic to modern. Bamboo quickly replenishes itself so there is less of an impact when compared to other window covering materials. It also means that when the bamboo or woven shades’ lifecycles are complete, they will break down faster in landfills than man-made materials. After all, we have enough garbage in landfills already that will be there for decades. Choosing bamboo means choosing responsible style options.
Another option that uses natural materials is real wood blinds. While many of them have a protective coating, helping to make them last longer, the majority is made from real non-man-made materials. Wood blinds will give your space added sophistication and a sense of warmth. Just like bamboo shades, real wood blinds work well with every décor style.
Made from recycled materials, aluminum mini blinds are a great way to continue your eco-friendly lifestyle. Instead of using all new materials to create these blinds, you can have peace of mind that you’re giving materials a new life.
One way to stay eco-friendly is to use less energy in your home. Solar shades can help you do that. They block harmful UV rays and keep your home comfortable throughout the four seasons. Using less energy will not only save you money, but it will help you conserve energy.
Embrace your eco-friendly lifestyle. If you haven’t taken the first step yet, start with eco-friendly window coverings. Before you know it, you’ll have transformed your entire life.
