The sun can cause valuable features like the floor, furniture, and artwork of your home to fade. In this article, we’ll talk about how blinds protect your furniture from the sun.


How the sun damages your furniture

They are three key causes of damage from light spectrum; these include heat radiation, UVB, and UVA rays. Your expensive furniture can fade due to the UV rays that come from the sun.

furniture at home. There are also blinds made of other opaque products that prevent UV light from penetrating them.
