Sustainability will be the hottest trend in 2023. Eco-friendly homes use energy efficiently, conserve resources, and reduce waste. This includes everything from recyclable building materials to energy-efficient appliances to furniture. What is the best way to decorate a living room sustainably? Make your living room perfect for those who love nature and care about their impact on the earth with these easy design tips. 

1 Start with Custom Lighting

What is the best way to decorate a living room? Good lighting design, believe it or not. The strategic light placement allows you to make the most of your space. Brighten up your room with contemporary lamps that make your space functional and modern. Install a smart lighting system. Many can work with your smartphone!

2 Embrace a Minimalist Approach to Living Room Design

Admittedly, many of us have a tendency to load up on lots and lots of stuff. Toss out the old. Donate old furniture and unread books. Finally, recycle old electronics. Eliminate clutter with multifunctional pieces that cleverly hide the mess. Opt for sleek furniture with a clean look. High-quality furniture will last you for decades, reducing waste. 

Many homeowners make the mistake of purchasing inexpensive and cheaply made furniture that quickly breaks after a year. That is by design. Instead, look for a sofa, coffee table, and entertainment unit that will withstand years of use.

3 Use Recycled Materials

Replace dated flooring with reclaimed wood, bamboo flooring, and other sustainable building materials. Decorate your home with treasures you find at the local artisan fair or commission a local artist to create gorgeous wall art. Use natural pieces, like driftwood or stone, to decorate your home. Embrace found and recyclable objects to add a personal touch to your living room. 

4 Use Energy-Efficient Electronics

Many of us waste incredible amounts of electricity with outdated electronics and appliances. When it comes time to replace your television, opt for smart televisions with energy efficiency. Set up your home with smart devices to time electronics and lighting throughout your home. 

5 Bring Nature Inside Your Living Room

One of the easiest ways to make your living room more eco-friendly is by adding indoor plants to beautify your home. Many gorgeous indoor plants will not only help clean your indoor air but will bring you additional joy as you gaze upon their beauty.
