‘HOW CAN I PRO­TECT MY COUCH FAB­RIC FROM GET­TING SCORCHED BY THE SUN?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

It all comes down to your fab­ric choices: silks and pure cot­tons will fade in the sun, while blends with a lit­tle polyester in them are much hardier. Luck­ily you can now get amaz­ing fab­rics with a cotton, linen or vel­vety fin­ish that are a poly­blend. In the long term, darker fab­rics are more likely to fade over time. Other op­tions in­clude plac­ing trans­par­ent UV-re­sis­tant film on your win­dows and po­si­tion­ing out­side planters to shield fur­ni­ture from harsh rays.
