The present-day world we are living in welcomes technology, innovation,
and extravagant designs as a basis for our homes. Whether it’s a luxury
home in the Philippines, or anywhere around the globe, the main
attraction would either be an elaborately crafted sculpture, perhaps a
framed painting which covers an entire wall, or even modern-day devices
which is sure to capture the attention of guests.
However, there are those who aim for green living.
Many consider mother nature’s gift as an organic art which brings the
best out of the luxury home without even trying. How do you achieve an
eco-friendly environment while living in high-end homes? Here are some
tips on how you may be able to enjoy nature in the comfort of your
This may be tedious work, especially when you’re just starting out and
you barely have any plants or flowers growing to get inspiration
running. Still, gardening is a good way
to keep an eco-friendly home. It can also take away your stress by
keeping you busy with activities that expose you to nature. Once you
have gotten used to carefully growing and maintaining your plants,
you’ll see that all your efforts will not have gone to waste.
Remove energy vampires
What are energy vampires?
These are electricity-consuming devices that, even without using them
or even if they are switched off but are still plugged in, continue to
make use of electricity. Energy vampires sap so much electricity that
you’ll be surprised by just how much it can raise your energy
consumption. Avoid wasting unnecessary electricity. The best way to
maintain an eco-friendly home is by making sure you switch off all
electrical devices and unplug them from their sockets.
Segregate and dispose of your waste properly
Children in schools are being taught about throwing trash not just in
the bin, but as to which bin you are throwing your wastes into.
Hopefully, you’re still doing this well into your adulthood. Remember which items
go into each bin labeled: biodegradable, residuals, recyclables, and
dry paper. In this way, not only do you keep your waste in check, but
you also do the planet a favor by making it easier to recycle.
Install solar panels
have proven their worth as eco-friendly solutions. Today, it is being
used in both industrial and home settings. If possible, have your own
solar power panels installed. This is a great help towards curbing your
energy consumption. Your solar panels harness the power of the sun to
convert it into energy which can be used to run your lights and other
electrical-powered machines at home. Plus, it’s clean and renewable.
Consider composting toilets
Unlike regular toilets with a flush to drain bodily waste, composting
toilets do not really make use of the “flush” system. Instead, it
recycles human waste into fertilizers which could benefit agriculture.
Although this kind of toilet is used more in suburban areas, it doesn’t
hurt to consider how important it proves to be for the environment, and
perhaps even your own gardening at home.
Make use of natural cleaning products
Part of maintaining a luxury home in the Philippines is the general
cleaning you have to do. If you want to stick to an eco-friendly way of
settling things, make use of organic cleaning products. These natural
products can be found in your kitchens such as vinegar, citric acid, or
citrus fruits. Purifying water is an ideal way of making sure the house
is free from dirt and muck at the end of cleaning.
One-with-nature home designs
If you are truly committed to the call of mother nature alongside living
in luxury, then you might want to consider a design which blares out a
true call to saving the environment. Such home designs include the
caterpillar house design with its multitude of ceiling-to-floor windows
to let nature flood in, sky garden house design with an architecture
connected to a garden, or even a floating house located on a beach with
waters surrounding the exterior.
Recycle plastic bottles
It’s not that you should completely avoid plastic bottles, because what
if it’s the only choice left? Instead, you could re-use plastic bottles
as pots for planting flowers, or for do-it-yourself creations. You’ll
find that plastics have their uses once creatively produced and that it
doesn’t have to be just another waste filling up landfills or ending up
in the ocean.
Let every day feel like Earth Day with an eco-friendly luxury home. Just
because you’re living the prestigious life doesn’t mean you have to
ignore the possibilities of green living. Let Mother Nature tap inside
you, make itself known, and guide you on how you will be able to
manifest nature within the comfort of your luxury home.
