When you go outside in the summer it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen. No one thinks anything of it or that it’s weird to put on sunscreen. We do it because we don’t want to turn into lobsters, get skin cancer, or be uncomfortable when we move around. It’s equally not weird to be worried about the sun’s effect on the furniture like sofa sets and entertainment centers.
A good way to avoid this is to make sure that all of your furniture is not sitting in direct sunlight. If you have a window that gets direct sun for a majority of the day, setting a sofa there will ensure that it turns a different color. Move it to a shadier place where you can enjoy it for years to come. When the sun is directly hitting one spot on the carpet for a long period of time, the carpet will turn different colors. It usually will bleach out to a lighter shade of the original carpet color but sometimes can turn white or a gross yellow color. The same thing can happen to your furniture. While it’s mostly noticeable on your cloth and fabric furniture like sofas, chairs, and ottomans its effects can be seen on wooden furniture too.
