There’s nothing worse than putting time and money into your outdoor furniture only to find that it quickly needs replacing due to sun damage. Sun damage can very quickly make your outdoor furniture go from fab to completely drab. The colour will fade, the furniture frames will wear and the paint will weather. Good quality furniture will take longer to wear from the sun but if you take a few preventative measures, you can get it lasting even longer.

Here’s how you can make your battle with the sun more manageable:

Seasonal Storage

There is always furniture you may not use in winter, so if you’ve got the room to store it, why not put it away so that it’s still looking just as fresh as it did last summer? Your furniture won’t miss the rain or sun damage and neither will you.

Furniture Covers

Covering your furniture and barbeque with something specifically made to repel UV rays is one of the best ways to avoid damage. Sheets aren’t enough for Australia’s harsh sun, so make sure your furniture covers are durable and fitted.

Shade for You and Your Furniture

If you have wooden furniture that is constantly exposed to the elements, depending on its quality you may need to repaint or reseal it from time to time. Doing so will guarantee its longevity and keep it protected from UV damage for longer.

Rearrange Your Furniture Regularly to Hide it from the Sun

If you’ve got your daybed directly in the sun or against a large window, you can guarantee the fabric of its cushions will fade over time. Rearranging your furniture from time to time will give it a break from the sun and you are less likely to see such unrepairable damage to your fabrics.
