Sustainability begins at home. From finishes to furniture, selecting eco friendly products and practices can enhance the design of your home as well as leave a positive environmental impact. Sustainable interior design creates interior spaces using design principles such as functionality, accessibility, and aesthetics and expands the focus to include environmental considerations. Sustainable design projects are influenced by such factors as planning efficient use of space, choosing materials with low environmental impacts, and reducing energy consumption, pollution, and waste. Sustainable interior designers can balance aesthetics and functionality with choices that reduce the environmental impact of their designs.
