Environmentally Friendly Design Elements

With Earth Day in April, going green has been giving many people food for thought this month. Environmentally friendly practices and features can be used in multiple facets of our lives, including our home environments. Here are a few green elements we at Home on the Range have incorporated into a number of our interior design projects: Reclaimed Wood Reclaimed wood is a great natural material we often turn to for rustic bathroom and kitchen designs; we’ve also found many contemporary furniture pieces made of reclaimed wood.

Architectural Antiques This is another example of going green by reusing older elements in modern-day design. Architectural antiqueslike corbels, doors, shutters and more have added meaningful layers to a variety of Home on the Range projects.

This Mine Style house by Home on the Range includes an antique door.

Multi-functional Furnishings A great Houzz article on “ways to go greener through design” suggests using multi-functional furnishings, and we couldn’t agree more. Ottomans used as coffee tables or with storage space inside are great options.

Here, we used a great ottoman as a coffee table.

We often look for ways to incorporate fluorescent or LED lighting into our lighting design as an energy saving feature.
