Because every choice counts, we've put together three tips for more sustainable interior design. These may be small steps, but they impact both your quality of life and the planet. Take note.
1. Give preference to natural lighting
Make the most of daylight. Even if the size of your home’s windows or its exposure to the sun are not ideal, if you choose light colours for the walls and furniture these will reflect more light. In this way, you reduce the need for artificial lighting and electrical energy consumption.
2. Restore, reuse and recycle
Restore an old piece of furniture, renewing its usefulness, reuse fabrics or reclaim objects that would otherwise go to waste in order to create something new. With a little creativity, there are countless ways to use what you already have to create unique and stylish pieces.
3. Choose environmentally-friendly materials
Whenever possible, opt for natural materials from renewable sources. In this product category, cork is one of the most outstanding raw materials. Derived from the bark of the cork oak, it is harvested every nine years, without cutting down any trees. The material is 100% natural, reusable and recyclable, which makes it the right choice for people looking for a sustainable décor element.
Go4cork: decorate with cork
Resistant to water and fire, hypoallergenic, light and elastic, cork is increasingly becoming an interior decoration trend, chosen by a growing number of designers for decorative projects, furniture design and both practical and decorative items.
Go4cork enables you to follow this trend and decorate your home with cork yourself. The decorative products line includes decorative panels and agglomerate cork rolls with various dimensions and finishes, which can give the walls of your home a unique, natural aspect full of personality.
As it is very easy to handle and cut, in addition to being applied to walls, cork roll can also be used as a non-slip material for the inside of drawers, and in countless hand-made projects.
Cork with a touch of colour
In addition to cork, some Go4cork products incorporate by-products from the footwear, packaging and automotive industries. This combination of materials gives new life to waste material that would otherwise be thrown away, while at the same time enhancing cork’s attributes. In each product, we always use the optimal quantity of cork so as to ensure the best performance.
As many of the materials we add to cork are coloured, some Go4cork products have a different look, with shades that depart from cork’s traditional colour, or small coloured touches. These elements give the cork a modern and irreverent aspect, while simultaneously expanding the range of decorative choices at your disposal.
