If you are a person who loves to sit in a sofa that is soft and comfortable like leather but certainly don’t want to do that by being cruel to animals, then don’t worry. This is a write-up just for you. This article will discuss about some of the wonderful ideas you can adopt while decorating your home, as an alternative to animal products.
Sofas and Couches
The first thing you want to do when you come home is to sit in a comfortable sofa. There are lots of vegan sofas available in the market made of faux-leather that gives the feeling of leather. If you are not that ‘leather’ person, you can also choose from a range of fabric sofas. They look bold and beautiful with a patterned print.
How about decorating the sofas with ‘vegan’ pillows? There are pillows made of canvas and stuffed with recycled polyester and is even perfect for seasonal change.
There are pom-pom pillows that would add colour to your furniture.
Are you a peace lover? Then, there are cotton pillows available which are unique and also colourful. Some are even handmade. So, you can start customizing the pillows with pictures of your family and your pets (show your love for animals!)
If you have been using paints made from animal products or being tested on animals, it time to change. You get beautiful shades of paints that are not only animal friendly but also environmental friendly. Paint your walls with those lovely paints!
Carpets and Rugs
Carpets and Rugs essentially contain wool. So, substitute them with cotton or synthetic ones. They add more brightness to the room than the woollen ones. There are even more options available such as the one made of bamboo, jute and chenille.
If you are looking for a comforter that is warm, comfortable and super soft, buy a vegan one that would make you guilt-free. While buying a comforter, look what it is made of. Many are made of sheep’s wool. Check for labels like “synthetic down”, “polyester fill” or fabrics that are hi-tech – they are washable and soft. The good news is that they are also not so expensive. Choose a bed that would give you a peaceful and guilt-free sleep all night.
Curtains add fun to the decoration and anyone can do the trick of making it vegan by selecting a curtain material free of wool. You do a make-over without costing more. Just measure, buy an animal friendly fabric and stitch!
If it’s the holiday season, you might want to decorate your house with candles. Candles are surely the touch of elegance. But are they derived from animals? Yes. Many of them are derived from beeswax and fat taken from pig’s stomach. Why not add beauty to the candles by buying soy-based ones or the ones made from paraffin? We can even decorate with the LED candles (flameless).
DIY Soy Candles
Make your conscience clear and your hands clean with Vegan soaps that produce great aroma. You would sometimes even feel like eating them. Though Soaps are not part of the décor, the aroma still makes you feel comfortable.
Hanging a vegan inspired wall hanging will create inspiration among others who visit your home. Hanging could be anything from mere pictures of beautiful animals to inspirational slogans to let everyone know about the care needed for animals.
Above all these decors, do not forget to keep the home environmental friendly. When you have a pet at home, keep things safe for him. Having an artificial plant or anything that he might chew will prove dangerous and is not considered to be a ‘vegan’ décor. Love animals and go ‘vegan’ the beautiful way!
