I recently moved into a 1 bedroom apartment, and I am storing my Lego sets out in the living area. There is one problem: one wall is practically all window. Since it is unrealistic to have the blinds closed all of the time (since the lighting isn't great), and I don't have the space or money to buy display cabinets with the special glass that filters UV light, I installed UV film to the windows. Will this be enough to save my Lego sets from suffering from discoloration, or should I be doing something else? This situation is only for a year or two, then I hope to buy a house where my sets can safely live in the basement, away from sunlight.
Product description says:
UV protection helps reduce fading on flooring, furniture, portraits, blinds and draperies
Reduce, not eliminate, because such film cannot remove 100% of UV, and regular light can also participate in fading a bit.
If you want to store them, not to display them, then box will do. One that isn't transparent. There are opinions that airtight boxes help, too, but I haven't tested that. Regular dark box did a pretty ok (not perfect) job for me when I stored my bricks for many years.
