Furniture Fading?

Direct sunlight can be quite damaging to both furniture and carpet. This may be a direct result of ineffective window treatments. Some window treatments are more effective than others in blocking light. Some window coverings either completely block light when closed and full light when open. Drapes are often solid, so they allow for full light an visibility when open and zero access to the window when closed. To fully protect carpet and furniture from fading, drapes need to be closed during times with the most sunlight.
