Do you have rooms in your house which get hit directly by sunlight making them too hot or is your furniture affected by the sun’s rays coming through your windows?
Strong sunlight on any given day of the year can threaten the quality of your furniture and is ultimately unfixable.
Even though we often overlook the quality and health of our home furnishings, it’s important to remember the quality and life span of our furniture can be prolonged and protected from things like sun stains.
Strong sunlight can also affect your home or working environment by heating buildings and rooms, creating glare and making everyday living conditions uncomfortable. Sun protection using blinds or screens is a great way of moderating sunlight and controlling the temperature and light intensity in our immediate living and working areas.
If you’re not sure if any of your furniture is being affected by sunlight, have a look over some of them. You might not have noticed as sun staining can happen so gradually you might just think “it’s always looked like that”, so we’ve put some points together to help you determine if your furnishings are being affected by sun staining.
- Rug outlines - If you have rugs in your property which have been kept in the same position for a long time when you lift one you might be able to see a difference in colour caused by years of sun staining.
- Fabrics are fading - Fabrics like silk or linen will fade a lot quicker than other fabrics made of acrylic, polyester or vinyl, but no fabric is going to be completely safe from the sun’s rays.
- Leather is cracking - if you have a leather sofa or other leather furnishings positioned by or directly in front of a window have a look for cracks. Sunlight and leather are not a good match, long exposure to sunlight can cause your leather furnishings to crack
