Patio umbrellas are a fantastic way to add shade, as well as complement your patio furniture. They not only offer protection from the hot summer sun, but they also enhance your outdoor furnishings. When it comes to purchasing a patio umbrella, there are several factors to consider, including your budget and design preferences.
Market Patio Umbrella
This is the most popular style of umbrella, with a round shape. They are frequently equipped with ventilated canopies to allow for circulation. Market umbrellas are held up by a pole that extends from the top of the canopy down to the table’s bottom.
Cantilever Patio Umbrella
The offset umbrella is another type of umbrella. The pole from which the cantilever hangs is to the side, allowing for a much more open area without distractions in the middle, unlike the market umbrella. This allows for a truly adaptable and convenient coverage, and it’s better suited for large areas. They are heavier than market umbrellas and usually cost more.
When purchasing patio umbrellas, consider the weather as well. Do you have high winds? If so, make sure you get the proper material. It’s preferable to use flexible materials like wood or fiberglass instead of aluminum, which is vulnerable to strong wind gusts.
