Pick a Perfect Patio Umbrella | At HomePick A Perfect Umbrella
BEFORE YOU START
When shopping for some shade, you need to figure out which size to buy first. Measure how much space
you have and how much coverage you want. Your outdoor umbrella should be about five feet larger than
the area you want shaded.
1. CHOOSE THE PERFECT UMBRELLA BASED ON YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE
Do you want to easily move your umbrella from poolside to patio? You need the versatility of a freestanding center-pole umbrella. Looking to cover a large lounge area or deck? A sturdy offset umbrella is just the thing. Want to add some shade to your
table? You could go for a classic center-pole design or an offset style.
38-48" TABLE OR BISTRO SET
Try a 7.5' ROUND UMBRELLA or a 8' OFFSET UMBRELLA
Try an 11' ROUND UMBRELLA
Try a 9' ROUND UMBRELLA or a 9' ROUND FASHION UMBRELLA or a 6.5' X 10' LED RECTANGLE UMBRELLA or a 6.5' X 10' RECTANGLE UMBRELLA
A base is essential for keeping your umbrella upright and secure in bad weather. Exactly how much your patio umbrella base needs to weigh depends on size and type. A table umbrella gets some support from the furniture, but a freestanding
umbrella will need more weight to remain stable.
It’s about form and function. First, consider the size and shape of the area you want covered. (Certain shapes work better with certain spaces.) Next, think about the vibe of your outdoor spot. (The shape of your canopy will put
the finishing touch on your outdoor aesthetics.).
