Window blinds manage light to prevent damage to treasured collectibles
May 18 2011
Whether shown in a curio case, on shelves or attached to a display wall, precious collectibles need to be shielded from sun damage.
Shielding art pieces or collectibles from sun damage requires window coverings to manage light.
Home decorators who are concerned about damage caused by direct light can start to protect their decorative treasures by choosing a window treatment that brings light into a room, but filters out the strongest sun rays that can fade fabric and other materials.
Window blinds are an attractive and practical choice to limit sunlight cast onto collectibles, because they can be adjusted to allow in enough light without the full force of damaging UV rays. Buying custom blinds online broadens the choices even more by selecting colors and finishes that complement a room's décor.
Once the light is managed, collectibles can be displayed without fear of damage in a variety of ways, such as setting them within a niche with shelves surrounding a sofa or other prominent piece of furniture.
Or, as PotteryBarn.com suggests, homeowners can install a wall display that stands out. "Divide a group of frames to display on mounted ledges," the website advises. "Overlap and stagger the height of the frames for variety."
