4 Simple Tips for an Eco-friendly Home Renovation


“Environmental pollution is an incurable disease. It can only be prevented.” ― Barry Commoner


What is an Eco-House? 

An Eco-house (or eco-home) is an environmentally low-impact home, designed and built using materials and technology that reduces its carbon footprint and lowers its energy needs. The concept of an eco-house means a dwelling that has a low impact on the environment. If you are one of those who do not want to have a negative impact on your environment we suggest some eco-friendly ways to make your property ‘environmentally friendly’.


How will you achieve this through an eco-house renovation?

Here are 4 basic and modern ways in which we can make our new home environmentally friendly and help protect our eco-system:

1. Use Eco-furniture in home decoration

In the construction of your new house or in a simple renovation use furniture that is made of reusable materials or materials that are completely recyclable. Wooden furniture should be of certified wood and designed with such methods that don’t have a negative impact on forests.

By contributing to the protection of the earth’s natural wealth and at the same time you will have a modern space that meets your daily requirements.

2. Put plants & flowers to your balcony and garden space

Indoor plants filter out air, absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, and produce oxygen in the home’s atmosphere. They generally help with our stressful and ‘polluted’ daily life.

3. Use Eco-colors to paint the walls of your home

Eco-friendly colors are made from natural materials and plants, therefore safer for health and the environment.

4. Use methods – ways that capture solar energy (Solar Heating Systems + Solar Water Heater + Photovoltaics)

Greece is a country that has sunshine more than 220 days of the year. So let’s make good use of solar radiation. -Solar heating systems convert it into thermal energy which can generate electricity for the whole household. Solar water heaters provide plenty of hot water almost all year long, without the need to burn electricity. Electric panels provide electricity, heating, and cooling at virtually no cost and minimal energy consumption.

The construction of an eco-friendly house helps to improve the quality of life and reduce energy consumption so that the impact of human existence on our land has less negative consequences. An eco-renovation reduces a household’s monthly expenses and ensures a better future.
