But one drawback to so much sunlight shining into interior spaces is the effect UV rays have on furniture. Sunlight fades the bright colors of carpets, couches, chairs, and other pieces of furniture that aren’t leather or otherwise protected from the sun. Also, exposure to sunlight for long periods of time causes damage to wood, sometimes causing permanent discoloration or deformation.
Luckily, there are a number of ways to protect our furniture from the sun’s unrelenting power. Unless you’re willing to blackout your space with thick-fabric window coverings or place your most valuable furniture outside the direct reach of UV rays, I believe, employing window blinds would be most convenient and effective. Why? Because choosing the right window blind option, can help protect sunlight-sensitive interiors without sacrificing daylight, privacy, and the view outside your windows. In this blog, I’m going to run through some window blind and fabric options that can help you achieve this.
