How to make your bedroom more eco-friendly

5 ways to re-imagine your bedroom with the environment in mind

Ways to make a bedroom more eco frienly

We are all looking for ways to be more eco-friendly in the home, and what better place to start than the room you spent the most time in (albeit when you’re asleep)! Our bed and bedroom experts are here to show you easy ways to help the environment, as well as your own physical and mental health in the meantime!

The majority of us all know one person in the family who goes around turning off the TV, kettle, and all appliances’ downstairs before hitting the hay – but how many of us think about doing the same in the bedroom? Turn off those standby appliances upstairs that are using your electricity – and you can even save on energy costs!

While some people may have heard the myth that plants cant be kept in the bedroom, we are here to tell you that’s simply not true! Keeping a few plants in your sleeping quarters can actually improve the air quality by purifying the air, and relieves stress. Not to mention, they are a cheap and beautiful interior decoration option.

When upgrading your mattress, look to purchase a roll up mattress, better yet a vacuum packed roll up mattress – these are significantly more eco-friendly due to being more compact when transported, simply put more mattresses can fit in a container/lorry therefore less fuel is used per mattress! Alongside this, a lot of roll up mattresses are made from more sustainable materials, such as the Silentnight Studio Eco Hybrid Mattress roll up mattress which is made from 100% recycled materials including recycled plastic bottles.

We are all guilty of being too trigger-happy on the air freshener, who can blame us for wanting a beautifully smelling boudoir – but a lot of air fresheners have chemicals and toxins, and it goes without saying they aren’t good for the environment. Natural air fresheners are a great choice – think air fresheners with natural ingredients, scented candles or even making your own with essential oils!

Last but not least, de-cluttering, re-purposing and recycling are the way forward with creating an eco-friendly bedroom. If you are replacing any furniture when re-doing your bedroom, ask if the company delivering can recycle the old furniture that would otherwise be thrown away – for example here at Linthorpe Beds we will take away and recycle your old bed or mattress when delivering your new one!
