Umbrellas are meant to provide shade from the sun. This means that they will be undergoing a lot of UV and Sun Damage, which causes the fabric to fade. Being outside 24/7 also means that the umbrella will be subjected to mother nature. So, when looking for an umbrella you are going to want a durable fade resistant fabric.

  1. Shape: Market, Cantilever, or Beach 

This all depends on your patio space that you have currently. Market: One of the oldest umbrellas every invented. The octagon shape is perfect for any outdoor small table.

Cantilever: This is an elegant umbrella. Cantilever Umbrellas are for patio settings that don’t have the room for a pole. Cantilever Umbrellas hang at an angle freeing up space around the patio. They are available in shapes such as square, octagon, rectangular and round shapes. 

Beach: Beach Umbrellas are exactly what they sound like. They are great umbrella for days out at the beach. They are lightweight and provide enough shade for one or two chairs alongside the beach or lawns.  They are not as durable or long lasting as the Market or Cantilever.
