Patio umbrella ideas are a key part of the look for outdoor living spaces, so when choosing the best umbrella for your patio, it pays to invest in a piece that adds quality and style to your alfresco set-up. If you want to make your garden become multi-functional spaces, from a sunny spot to children’s playground, this umbrella is perfect for you.
An umbrella that slots through a table set-up is a great addition to your outdoor dining as it will shield you from the sun when you most need it. Large enough to shade a six-person table, this patio umbrella comes in 3 colors and is easy to open and close with the crank handle.
What's great about the three tier design of this patio umbrella (other than the highly decorative look) is the ventilation. Hot air or wind can flow much more easily through the vents within each tier to help prevent the umbrella from blowing away or becoming unstable.
The latest parasol designs come with an integrated wireless glow that's perfect for lighting up warm summer evenings. The lighting with styles like this one is integrated into the ribs of the patio umbrella and can be directed to shine. It's super easy to use too.
If you’re looking for more coverage in terms of shade and size, this square umbrella is a great choice. As well as looking super-stylish, cantilever patio umbrella ideas allow you to stretch the parasol away from its stand, over the area of your choice, which means more space to move around underneath. As shown above, cantilever parasols are designed to hang over your outdoor egg chairs without getting in the way.
It’s summertime and it’s HOT outside. But if you are fortunate enough to have a pool in your backyard then you have a place to cool off but what about shade protection while you are in the pool or relaxing beside it? This umbrella is designed to complement many styles of outdoor furnishings as well as keep you and your family protected from the harsh rays of the sun.
If you have limited space in your garden and only want to use the shelter occasionally - for example when you have friends or family over, or when you hold a special event - a pop-up gazebo is likely the best choice for you. But remember, pop-up gazebos are sometimes not waterproof and are not usually designed to withstand high winds. If you have a larger garden and are looking for a more lasting addition, you can opt for a seasonal or permanent gazebo.
