Why sun is bad for your home interiors and what you can do about it

A light and bright home is what everyone is looking for. Natural light makes rooms look bigger, makes colours pop and creates different ambiences through the day, while the physical and psychological benefits of sunshine in our lives are undisputed. However, far too few householders consider the fact that all that bright daylight also has a downside.


Think about it. The constant exposure to the sun’s powerful UV rays is bound to cause fading, discolouration and damage to materials such as wood, leather and textiles over time. What’s more, UV rays are just as powerful on overcast and rainy days, so the sun doesn’t even have to shine in order to cause damage.
