Bamboo is the perfect material to have in an eco friendly bedroom

Many people are looking for furniture that is green, organic, and sustainable. For this reason, bamboo furniture has become a popular choice. It is inexpensive but durable. It is also surprisingly comfortable to sleep on. Greenington bamboo beds can be used as the main centerpiece of your eco-friendly bedroom without breaking the bank.
The Greenington Currant Platform Bed is the perfect first piece for your modern or contemporary bedroom.
What is Moso bamboo and why use it for eco-friendly bedroom furniture?
Moso bamboo generates the densest and toughest fibers of any bamboo species when it reaches maturity, which takes around 5-6 years.
Although too stiff to be used in basket weaving, Moso's resilience makes it ideal for products that must resist repeated usage over time, such as eco-friendly furniture.
Greenington bamboo furniture is made from mature Moso bamboo.
Farmers choose and harvest every bamboo by hand, allowing it to regenerate swiftly.
During the production process, no bamboo is lost, even sawdust, which is utilized to produce steam for the kiln and press molding operations.
One of our best sellers made of this tough material is the Greenington Willow 6 Drawer Dresser. The Willow double dresser is made of solid bamboo and offers clean lines, beveled edges, and softly tapered legs to produce a transitional dresser that goes with any decor.
Eco-friendly bamboo furniture doesn’t mean just one look
Bamboo comes in a variety of hues and textures, with around 1500 species identified. Greenington goods come in a variety of finishes, including natural Caramelized, rich reddish-brown Sable, exotic Tiger, Black Walnut, and Mocha.
There are goods available for both a traditional look and a more contemporary style.
Take the Greenington Azara Nightstand for example - which comes fully assembled and in a striking Exotic tiger finish.
Add some eco friendly shelving
Bamboo is a fast-growing, renewable resource that is a sustainable alternative to wood. It is also an eco-friendly material that can be used in the bedroom.
Bamboo shelving from Greenington makes for an excellent way to store books or other items in the bedroom without taking up too much space. This type of shelving can be placed in any room of the house, but it is especially practical for smaller rooms where space is at a premium.
Use a low VOC paint on the walls and ceiling of your eco-friendly bedroom
Low VOC paints are eco-friendly and can help you reduce your carbon footprint.
The paint is created with less volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than traditional paints. This means that the paint doesn't release as many fumes into the air, which is better for the environment.
Low VOC paints also don't contain any hazardous ingredients that could harm your health, so it's safer to use in your bedroom or any other room of your house.
Use natural fibers such as wool or cotton
As a society, we are becoming more and more conscious of the materials that we use. An increasing amount of people are realizing it’s important to think about how our choices can impact the environment and those around us.
And this can be found in all decisions you make for your eco-friendly bedroom - including your bedding material.
There are many reasons to use natural fibers such as wool or cotton for your bedding material instead of synthetic fibers such as polyester. One reason is that synthetic fibers are not biodegradable. They will not break down into the earth and will instead just sit there for years, taking up space and adding to landfills.
Another reason is that natural fibers are more sustainable than synthetic ones, because they can be recycled and used again while polyester cannot.
But the main reason why people should use natural fibers in place of synthetic ones is because they are eco-friendly. Natural fabrics do not require any water or chemicals to produce, which means less pollution from the manufacturing process.
Organic bedding by trusted brands like Area Home is a great addition to your eco-friendly bedroom. Ann Gish bedding is also a great choice if you're looking for top quality materials and a luxurious feel.
How to create a stylish eco-friendly bedroom for a good night's sleep
There are many ways to create a stylish eco friendly bedroom. Here are some tips on how to do it:
Use natural materials like wood, bamboo and cotton in your bedroom. They are sustainable and they make your room look more stylish.
Buy an organic mattress. Your mattress and bedding has a direct impact on the quality and duration of your sleep. Choose a mattress that is comfortable and supportive, with an appropriate level of firmness. Consider sustainable materials such as wool or latex foam.
Add natural light to your bedroom with sunlight or artificial light like LED lamps that don't emit heat or UV rays. Studies show that artificial light can cause sleep disruptions and decreased melatonin production. Artificial light can also emit heat and UV rays which is unhealthy for the body. Natural light, on the other hand, is healthy and won't disrupt your sleep pattern.
Choose lighting fixtures that generate low levels of heat.
Use eco-friendly light bulbs
One way to make your bedroom more eco-friendly is by using energy efficient light bulbs in it. Energy efficient light bulbs use less electricity than traditional light bulbs, which means they produce less greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere.
They also last longer than traditional light bulbs because they contain fewer hazardous substances like mercury and lead than traditional CFLs, so you can feel safe using them in your home.
Finish the perfect eco-friendly bedroom with some plants
Some of the most popular plants in an eco-friendly bedroom are spider plants, peace lilies, and aloe vera.
Spider plants are easy to grow and require minimal light and water, making them a great plant for beginners.
Peace lilies grow best in indirect sunlight and need more water than other plants, but they do not need much attention or maintenance.
Aloe vera does not need direct sunlight or much water either, but it needs a lot of care because it is sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity levels.
One of the best ways to make your bedroom more eco-friendly is to add plants. Plants can help with air quality, temperature, and humidity. They also look amazing and provide a relaxing environment for you to sleep in.
