Protecting Your Furniture from UV Light Damage

3d helles WohnzimmerWhen you get new living room furniture, you may find that it is so comfortable and attractive that you want to do everything you can to prolong its life. This includes protecting your furniture from the sun and its harmful UV rays. UV rays have the potential to harm any organic substance. Luckily, there are some great ways to protect your new furniture from UV light damage, which can prematurely age and fade the fabric on your wonderful new couch or chair. Read on for some great tips.

  • Choose a window covering to reduce the UV rays. If you don’t mind reducing the amount of light coming into the house, you can simply choose a light-filtering shade, such as an inexpensive cell shade, which will allow light in your home but still block out the damaging rays.

  • Update the windows themselves. If you are in the market for a more radical change, you can update your windows. Window glass can be made that blocks UV rays while still allowing visible light to come through your home. Laminated glass and UV-blocking coated glass can filter anywhere from 95 to 99% of all UV light.

  • Install window tints or films. If you’d like to block the damaging UV rays while still enjoying the beauty of natural sunlight, protective window film is a better solution. When you use a high-quality window film, your furniture and the other surfaces in your home will not become prematurely faded. The newer window films are less reflective than older styles as well as being optically clear, making them more attractive for home use. When windows are protected by this film, 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet light and 97% of the infrared light is blocked.

Of course, when you take steps such as these, you’re not simply protecting your furniture and rugs–you’re protecting yourself. Window tints and films can control sun glare as well, making enjoying a sunny day much more pleasant.
