Choose a flooring option that is environmentally friendly. The eco-friendly options are easy in transportation, durable, and non-toxic. Floors made of bamboo, timber, or reclaimed wood are free of toxic fumes or VOCs. You can also use rugs made of jute, sisal, organic cotton, or wool, as they are environmentally sustainable and improve indoor air quality. Along with the flooring, choose natural or low VOC paints that help maintaining clean air.
Style up with Natural Curtains
Curtains are a great means to enhance the beauty of a room and the eco-friendly options are the best to enhance the green effect in a place. Avoid petroleum-based synthetics and try to use linen curtain fabrics, light cotton, and sheer fabrics instead. Light and bright linen or thin fabric drapery will be the best choices for this summer.

Any fabrics dyed with less toxic ingredients or fabrics that are naturally pigmented will be the best options. Experimenting with cold or light neutral tones help add fresh feel and create a comfortable, airy, and pleasant environment.
Improve Air Quality in Style
It is important to improve the air quality and easy flow of air into your bedroom, especially during the summer season. Operable windows for cross ventilation, HEPA filters in vacuums, low or no VOC paints and stains for walls and furniture will significantly improve the air quality. To make the bedroom’s look more stylish, choose one or more funky, summer paint color and a stylish ceiling fan to circulate hot and cold air.
Color Burst with Eco-Friendly Furniture
Adding new furniture is a great décor idea but make sure that they are repurposed furniture or are made of recyclable materials. As summer screams for light and airy colors, beautify the furniture with flowery and colorful slipcovers and throws. Choose bright colored fabrics for the upholstery and covers of furniture. These small tricks will help your summer bedroom to burst with color and brightness.
