How to Choose the Right Umbrella

Which style of umbrella is right for my outdoor livingspace?

With so many options, choosing the best umbrella for your situation can sometimes be a challenge. Umbrellas come in different sizes, shapes, heights, fabrics, and with different stands to fit your needs.


Here Are Some Variables To Consider:

Where am I going to use my umbrella?
Freestanding, in a table, over a chair, on a balcony….

How am I going to use my umbrella?
For shade, wind protection, UV protection, privacy….

How am I going to support my umbrella?
Freestanding with a base, mounted on concrete, in earth, or on a wooden deck….


Umbrella Options:

Cantilever: Can be positioned directly over a table or lounge.

Tilt: Umbrellas can tilt one way or both ways.

Fastened: Into concrete, a table, dirt, wood, or a free-standing base.

Portable: On rollers for easy moving wherever you need it.

Fabric: 100% solution-dyed polyester resists the damaging effects of sun, mildew, and dirt. It can be removed from the umbrella, machine-washed and then returned to the umbrella to air-dry.

We can help you to choose the right umbrella for your situation.
