Homeowners normally welcome in sunlight with open arms, but many people don’t realize the damaging and harmful effects of UV rays on furniture.
Furniture, rugs, drapes and carpets are susceptible to the extra light entering your home, and even if you aren’t letting in direct sunlight, UV rays can still have devastating effect. Watching your furniture fade will not be entertaining.
Sun Damage and Furniture
Lying out on a beach all day isn’t the only way sun can cause damage!
UV lights can run havoc inside your home by bleaching photographs, destroying paper and documents, fade pigments, ruin textiles and break down the finish on woods. You worked hard for the possessions inside your home, and you don’t want your furniture, pictures and paintings to fade. Unfortunately, when something faces sun damage, the effects are generally irreversible and furniture fading is inevitable.
One way to protect your furniture from sunlight is to heavy drapes, blinds, curtains and window shades. While that helps prevent damage, it also can make a home appear drab and bleak.
When blocking the natural sunlight, especially during the winter, people inside a home can become susceptible to depression and other issues. This creates a conundrum, as homeowners want to enjoy natural light, but have to deal with the damage it can cause to furniture and other items within a home.
