The present study delves into the examination of environmentally conscious interior design techniques and their consequences for the built environment and sustainability. The use of sustainable materials, energy efficiency, waste reduction, biophilic design, indoor air quality improvement, water conservation, certifications and standards, social responsibility, ethical sourcing, and cost- benefit analysis are just a few of the strategies and concepts that are examined in the study. This study explores how these approaches help create interior spaces that are healthier and more ecologically conscious by doing a thorough literature review and analyzing case studies. It highlights how crucial it is to incorporate eco-friendly materials like bamboo, repurposed wood, and recycled glass in order to reduce environmental effect and encourage resource conservation. In order to lower energy use and slow down climate change, the research also looks into energy- efficient design strategies like daylighting, efficient lighting, and passive heating and cooling. Considerations for indoor air quality are examined, with an emphasis on the use of low-VOC materials and appropriate ventilation systems to guarantee the health of building occupants. The importance of green certifications and ethical sourcing in the interior design sector, as well as waste reduction and recycling techniques, biophilic design concepts, and water conservation techniques are all covered in this article. It also carries out a cost-benefit analysis to assess the financial effects of these actions, highlighting their long-term advantages for society and the environment.
