With summer rapidly approaching, it’s time to head outside for some quality relaxation on your patio. Whether you’re reading a book, barbecuing, or enjoying a nice meal with loved ones, you’ll need plenty of shade to keep the harsh sun rays at bay. Fortunately, Backyard Adventures of Iowa in Des Moines, IA, carries the selection of patio umbrellas and outdoor furniture you need to stay cool and comfortable all summer long.
3 Tips for Choosing the Right Patio Umbrella
1. Consider Size
The size of your umbrella is a key consideration. How much shade do you and your family members need? If your house, roof and surrounding trees already provide some shade, then you may not need a huge umbrella. If you plan to mount the umbrella to a table, it should at least be as wide as the table—and ideally, a little larger. You should also consider the height of the umbrella pole. To maximize comfort, your umbrella should stay out of people’s way while also providing ample shade.
2. Table-mounted Vs. Freestanding
Some umbrellas need to be mounted to tables while others are freestanding. If you host frequent patio dinners, then a table umbrella will serve you well. If you would like an umbrella to shade a poolside area or lounge chairs, then you need a freestanding umbrella with a heavy-duty base.
3. Play With Style & Color
With a little design consideration, patio umbrellas can be a vibrant and lovely addition to any backyard. Consider selecting your umbrella in a color or pattern that compliments your unique patio furniture and outdoor space.
