The past few weeks have seen a lot of nice long sunny days; and while that is great news for those who like to enjoy the sunshine. It means rooms that have a large amount of glazing, such as a conservatory; are at an increased risk at having their furniture and flooring damaged by the UV rays in sunlight. This is an especially important issue for people with a south-facing conservatory. This is because, the room is exposed to the sun for most of the day.
Protect Your Furniture & Flooring From Fading
A good way to see if your flooring has already faded is to move a piece of furniture. From here you can see the difference in colour between the floor under the furniture and the floor that has been in the sun. Our installation team often sees this difference after a customer has moved their furniture out of the way so that we have room to install the blinds.
In order to protect your furniture and flooring from UV rays, you need to block the UV from entering the room. While blocking the sunlight entirely will add protection; it can also block out light making the room feel dark and gloomy. This is why our blind fabrics have been specifically designed to block the UV light from entering a room. However, they still let enough visible light in to keep the room bright.
The amount of UV protection a blind offers will depend on the exact type and colour of fabric. If protection of your furniture and flooring is a priority, then our sales team will be able to recommend the best type of blinds for the job.

Survey and Installation: once you are happy with the blind fabric and design, we then organise for a member of our installation team to complete the survey.

The details are then sent over to our factory so we can begin to manufacture the blinds. In most cases, the same installer that completed your survey will come back to install the blinds. Once the blinds are installed they will make sure to explain the operation and maintenance of your new blinds so you are left completely satisfied with new purchase!
