Eco-Friendly Decor For Your Kids
This post is brought to you by HABA USA and written by guest blogger Bryn Huntpalmer from Modernize - "your go-to home improvement site."
Decorating your child’s first room is an important parenting milestone. By choosing bedroom furniture, toys, and decorations, you bring your new-found status as a family to life. For such a big occasion, only the best quality products will do. HABA USA offers children’s home decorations that are made from quality, sustainable resources and are of German-design from start to finish.
Cot mobiles give visual appeal while stimulating the senses at the same time. These mobiles are made from high quality, sustainable plywood and metal and will add instant individuality to any nursery.
Soft, comfortable, and durable seating is a must for any child’s playroom. Beanbags, cushions, and seating cubes with hidden storage make beautiful and practical additions to your home’s child friendly decor. Removable covers made from cotton/polyester blends which are rigorously tested for harmful substances tick all the boxes for safe, eco friendly, and practical seating.
Toy storage is a decor essential for homes with children (and lots of toys!). Choose catch-alls that do what they say on the tin. Lots of storage space and aesthetically appealing designs coupled with high quality nylon polyester fabrics equal the perfect toy storage option.
Area rugs and throws can warm up even the coldest of floors in an instant and make a perfect, practical playspace. Pick a rug that goes well with the rest of your design and that offers bright, colorful designs and patterns. This particular rug is made from New Zealand wool with a cloth backing and certainly catches the eye.
When imaginative play is on the agenda, a play tent is just what children need to transport them into another world. Made from cotton/polyester, mesh, and plastic rods, HABA’s tents are all free from fire retardants, water repellents, PVC, BPA, and phthalates. All the fun for kids and none of the worry for parents.
Children’s home decor isn’t just about the looks. Luckily, HABA’s coat racks and wall hooks offer practicality while maintaining an adorable style. These wall mounted hangers are made from imported plywood, sourced via controlled cultivation, and metal, and provide sturdy and sensible storage while encouraging independence in your children.
Why choose HABA? HABA prides itself on being an eco friendly brand committed to sustainable product sourcing and quality craftsmanship . The materials used to make HABA’s home decor products (as well as all of its toys) come from environmentally conscious sources and make use of no harmful chemicals.
HABA’s timber is sourced from sustainable forests in Germany and bears the PEFC seal (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes, an organization committed to sustainable forestry and the maintenance of ecological balance of forests). Plywood, when imported from Finland or Russia, is sourced via controlled cultivation. When wooden products are stained or painted, only solvent-free paint and water-based stains are used.
The textiles used for HABA fabrics come from sources inspected regularly and are all certified under the ICTI (International Council of Toy Industries) and tested by LGA (Germany’s State Trade Institute) for the presence of harmful substances. HABA’s Pure Nature products’ cotton is sourced via controlled organic cultivation.
Plastics and HABAform products are all BPA, phthalate, and PVC free. HABAform is a plastic substitute made from naturally occurring materials and is made from entirely renewable resources, making it carbon neutral.
Once you’ve kitted out your children’s rooms with all the sustainable decor they could possibly need or want, why not move on to the next room in your house? At Modernize, we are always thinking of ways to make our homes greener and more environmentally friendly. Once the ball is rolling, your home will soon become an eco friendly haven.
