The Role of Sustainability in Dubai Interiors

As the world is ever-evolving in knowledge and developments in how to make our planet a better place for us to live, sustainability and eco-friendliness have become not only a trend for people to follow but also a need for our world to conform to. Dubai, the world-renowned city of luxury and extravagance is not a stranger to the changes in the world and is always aiming at making the lives of those who come to live or visit better. Sustainable and eco-friendly interior design practices are taking center stage in the city’s burgeoning real estate and design industry. In this article, you will learn how to make your house a sustainable home and partake in Dubai’s vision for a greener future, as well as the benefits of eco-friendly choices for your family and pets.

Energy-Efficient Lightning

Anyone’s first step towards sustainable interior design in Dubai should be going from traditional incandescent lightbulbs to LED lightning. An unknown fact to Dubai citizens is that traditional lightbulbs significantly higher the temperature of a room in an already hot environment when producing light, therefore also increasing the AC bills. LED and CFL bulbs consume much less energy, last longer, and reduce maintenance demands. Smart lighting systems, which are sometimes even connected to the HVAC system (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), adjust brightness and color temperature based on natural light and occupancy are also becoming popular, further enhancing energy savings.

Green Materials

Certain building materials such as paint, adhesives, insulation materials, fabrics, flooring materials, and even cleaning products can contain harmful chemicals that are not only harmful to the environment but also to the landowner’s health in the long run. That is why it’s important to choose eco-friendly materials that minimize that impact such as reclaimed wood, recycled metal, and sustainable bamboo. Not only do these materials contribute to better air quality and indoor environment, but they look aesthetically pleasing and can make a very unique decor!

Indoor Air Quality

When you live in a city known to have a harsh desert climate and many dust storms, upkeeping indoor air quality is an important factor in a healthier life. Incorporating natural ventilation strategies and air purification systems will be very helpful in maintaining a cleaner home, and will especially help save your pets’ lives (asthmatic pets have a very hard time living in dusty homes, it can lower their lifespan and cause breathing issues).
