Have you ever moved a rug on a wooden floor and noticed the difference in colour between the exposed flooring and the area hidden beneath the rug?
I remember an installer from the full service end of our business telling me how a piano belonging to a very famous traditional Irish musician had been destroyed by the suns harmful rays.
He was delighted to get his plantation shutters installed, all be it too late to save the finish on his piano. But at least his other furnishings would be saved from discolouring and fading.
Simply by tilting the louvres upwards, you will deflect the sunlight away from your furnishings and upwards towards the ceiling where it will do much less damage.
