Colour plays an important role in solar protection.
Colour choice directly affects heat and light penetration. Pale colours let through more heat but offer incomparable light. Dark colours keep things cooler but blocks out more of the sunshine. Colours also offer optimum UV protection.
Dark shades provide total UVA and UVB protection, whereas paler shades provide protection similar to that of an SPF 50 skin cream.
Motion, lights, and optical illusions open multiple perspectives for outdoor decorating and design.
