When creating an interior it is important to design with longevity and flexibility in mind. Developing a healthy environment with low environmental impact whilst still achieving your desired aesthetic is vital. Future proofing is key and ensuring efficient use of a space. Positioning rooms so they make the best use of natural daylight or creating protected areas is key so children can play while a parent works at a desk nearby.

The makeup of the interior architecture and the selecting of hard materials is important. The specifications must come with the lowest possible environmental impact such as stone from local quarries, natural wood for insulation in a loft space and environmental worktops created using recycled materials.

Window treatments may still be wonderful whilst ensuring that natural light is maximised and insulation is achieved through the use of interlining.

Restoration and re-upholstery of furniture should be considered to avoid sending pieces to landfill.
