Toxins in your bedroom can affect your sleep quality and interfere with your nervous system.

We spend 30% to 40% of our time in the bedroom, according to the American Time Use Survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It’s where our bodies and minds rest and rejuvenate, and where we find respite from the outside world’s toxins and stressors. The best approach to creating a healthy indoor environment is to minimize the things in the room that can contaminate the air.

Healthy Walls and Carpet Rugs

You may not be aware that paints and finishes are often the culprit to the poor indoor air quality. VOC paint is toxic. Generally, wall coverings that have low VOCs are also moisture, mold, and mildew resistant, which eliminates further hazards to human health. Wallcoverings are also eco-friendly. Improving the indoor air quality of your home for you and your family should be a priority to prevent unnecessary exposure to harmful gases that can lead to a range of illnesses.

Elixir range of wallcoverings from Omexco uses sophiscated embossing technique of different non-woven layers, combined with metallic effects, create subtle changeant effects, which, as if by magic, make the designs appear and then again disappear, transforming the colours.

When selecting flooring, steer clear of synthetic wall-to-wall carpets, which can emit VOC’s and gather hard-to-clean dust mites and mold. Tile, wood, and linoleum are healthful choices; you can soften them with washable wool or cotton area rugs. If you opt for wall-to-wall-carpet, choose one with a low pile made of wool, nylon, or polyester.

Estella Rugs are designed by Brink and Campman and made to the highest standards by expert weavers with a 100% Pure New Wool pile. Besides being low VOC, it is also stain resistant. Estella rugs are highly inspirational with stunning striking abstract designs and vibrant colours. They are designed to provide luxurious comfort and to meet the demands of the modern home.

Soft Goods, Pillows, and Fabrics

To reduce the chance of these chemicals affecting you and your family, select bedding, curtains, mattresses, and furniture covers made with organically grown cottons and linens. Look for products that use wool, which does not easily burn, as a flame retardant. Choose mattresses containing foam made from natural rubber instead of polyurethane. Stay away from pads made with soft plastics.
