Global warming is more and more serious due to Carbon dioxide emission. This study focuses on the carbon footprint in interior decoration and construction via whole life cycle periods. The assessment is calculated by carbon footprints per square meter of indoor area in the unit of kgCO2e/m2 during the design procedure. The percentage of carbon decreasing is related with the design value and standard value. This study collected and analysed the carbon dioxide emission in every parts of interior decoration and construction as the database to be the standard value. And established the evaluated equations for further assessment by interior designers.
