I recently moved into 1 bedroom apartment, and I am storing my Lego sets out in the living area, but 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.
