There’s nothing worse than spending lots of money on lovely furnishings and furniture at home or at work, only to watch the fabric on your new sofa fade over the years, thanks to the hot sun beating down through the windows year in, year out.
No one wants to sit at home or the office with the curtains drawn and the lights on just to protect the furniture. Not only will this make your space feel enclosed and rather depressive, but you’ll also spend an awful lot more money on your energy bills as a result – and given the spiralling costs of energy at the moment, this is clearly something to avoid.
Luckily, there is something you can do, something you may not have considered before, and that’s installing fade reduction window film. This innovative product can actually solve a wide range of problems by reflecting 99 per cent of ultraviolet light coming in through the window. It can save you money by preventing fading on goods, can extend time on changing window displays and can also help to hold glass together on impact.
Recent research from The International Window Film Association found that while 69 per cent of US homeowners know that sunlight can cause fading in home furnishings, they do not always know what to do about it.
Window film is a brilliant and cost-effective option that is easy to install, so could well be worth looking into for both home and business owners who want to make sure that their furniture and stock stand the test of time.
