How to Prevent Your Carpet from Fading

Master Bedroom and Custom Bathroom

Once you find a beautiful carpet with which to complete your décor, you want to keep it looking as good as it did the day it was installed. Too much exposure to ultraviolet light could decrease your floor’s aesthetic appeal. Use the following tips to prevent fading and maintain a fabulous and attractive carpet.

Use Low-E Glass In Your Windows 
Provide a barrier against UV light by choosing windows that protect your interior. This way, you can still enjoy natural light as a decorative addition for your décor without having to worry about the carpet fading. Windows with Low-E glass prevent this harmful light from messing with your beautiful carpet.

Buy Quality Window Treatments 
Add even more protection to your flooring with window treatments that provide another barrier to the sun’s harmful rays. Drapes, and high-quality shades and blinds keep your interior safe from fading. Try to close the window treatments during the day if you are not home to keep the sun away from your floors. If your carpet does not fade, you can be sure that it will last for many years to come.

Consider Furniture Placement 
Where you place your furniture can also affect the aesthetic of your carpet. If your carpet is left on its own in direct sunlight, it has more of a chance of fading than if it is covered. After your carpet installation, think about the layout for the room and find a furniture configuration that really works for it.
