Why You Should Choose Eco-Friendly Light Fixtures

Your home is your sanctuary, and the way you choose to light it significantly impacts the ambiance and environment. Due to a growing interest in sustainable and eco-conscious living, more and more homeowners and renters are seeking ways to incorporate environmentally friendly elements into their décor choices. One innovative way to achieve this is by choosing eco-friendly light fixtures for your home.

Eco-Friendly Light Fixtures

Energy efficiency: save energy and money 

One primary reason to choose eco-friendly light fixtures is their energy efficiency. With energy costs constantly increasing, you need to find ways to minimize consumption and lower your bills. Eco-friendly lighting options, such as LED bulbs and solar-powered fixtures, reduce energy consumption by up to 75 percent compared to traditional bulbs. 

Additionally, energy-efficient bulbs have a longer lifespan, which translates into less frequent replacement and reduced waste. All these factors contribute to significant savings in energy costs, making these kinds of lights attractive options for budget-conscious homeowners and renters alike. 

Environmental friendliness: make responsible choices 

Opting for eco-friendly light fixtures also means selecting products made of sustainable materials. Using recycled glass fixtures is beneficial for the environment, as it reduces waste in landfills and lowers energy consumption during production. Bamboo, repurposed wood, and reclaimed metal are also popular choices for sustainable light fixture materials.

Choosing lighting options crafted from eco-friendly materials demonstrates a commitment to protecting the environment and promotes a healthy living space for you and your loved ones. 

Aesthetics: eco-friendly can be beautiful 

Eco-friendly light fixtures can serve as stunning design statements in your home. Modern technology and innovative designs have made it possible for manufacturers to create visually appealing lighting options that are both stylish and sustainable. Some eye-catching options include: 

  • Pendant lights made of recycled glass 
  • Chandeliers created with reclaimed wood 
  • Wall sconces crafted from repurposed metal 

These pieces add unique character and charm to your living space. 

Versatility: suitable for any room 

Eco-friendly light fixtures aren’t limited to one design or style. They come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, making them suitable for any room in your home. From rustic and industrial to sleek and modern, you can find eco-friendly lighting options that fit your preferred aesthetic.

Whether it’s a pendant light above your dining table, a floor lamp in your living room, or a vanity light in your bathroom, there’s an eco-friendly fixture for every space. 

Health benefits: a safer home environment 

By choosing eco-friendly light fixtures, you’re also contributing to a healthier living environment for yourself and your family. Traditional lighting options often contain harmful chemicals and materials like mercury and lead, which can pose health risks. Eco-friendly options use safer materials and generally emit less harmful emissions, promoting better indoor air quality and overall well-being. 

Why choose eco-friendly light fixtures for your home? Incorporating eco-friendly light fixtures in your home has aesthetic and financial benefits and also plays a crucial role in promoting sustainability and a healthier environment. It’s time to embrace eco-friendly lighting options and positively impact the world, one light fixture at a time. Get inspired by the numerous stylish and sustainable lighting options available, and make your home a reflection of your commitment to the environment. 

🏠Marvellous wall mural transformation

We interview Cherry, from @cherry_at_home on her recent bedroom transformation using a wallpaper mural to completely overhaul a neutral bedroom into a tropical oasis!

Read the interview below, which covers what mural she used, her design style and advice and tips on doing this transformation yourself!

About Cherry

“I’m a 30-something solo buyer trying to create my own cosy home. I’ve taken someone else’s neural space and am slowing adding colour, pattern and lots of plants!”

What inspired your decision for the mural?

“I painted the guest room in a simple neutral (a mistake though I liked the colour!) when I first moved in, in 2020 suddenly I was spending all my time in the room as it also became my home office. I’ve wanted to redecorate for a while and had my eye on wallpapering the whole room. When Hovia got in touch, I was instantly drawn to the Redoute mural and the impact it would create in the room; it also contains my key colours – pink, mustard & teal.” 

Cherry’s interior style

“I love lots of different styles and my taste changes based on the style, setting and age of a property. Typically it will involve colour & clashing patterns – I’m not a coordinated person!”

Before & after

“It was a cold room and very simple, now it looks warmer and cosier but also bigger.”

Where is the wallpaper from?

Hovia – they have a wonderful selection of wallpapers and murals. I was really lucky that they were happy to work with me on a mural to run around the whole room rather than a feature wall.”

What tools did you need to do the walls?

“A tape measure and (large) spirit level to find your straight drops (even a relatively new building doesn’t have straight walls!), a large brush to paste the walls, a wallpaper brush to smooth out any bubbles as you hang the paper.”

How long did it take?

“I’m lucky that my mum is a good decorator and helped me – it took her about 4 days but I’m sure someone more experienced could do it quicker.”

What advice can you offer someone looking to have a wall mural in their bedroom?

“The mural is scaled to fit your walls so remember it won’t look exactly like the sample you have. Be confident in your choice and don’t shy away from a bold design – trust your gut!”

What interior trends are you loving at the moment?

“Stripes – they never go out of fashion, maximalism, bold kitchens!”
