It’s summer, and we’re pretty sure you’re having a blast spending some quality time with family and friends outdoors. Surely you’re spending a lot of time in your patio, relaxing in your beautiful modern patio furniture. But summer also means a lot of sun – and as much as we love the sun, we need protection from it.

To completely enjoy a relaxing morning or afternoon outdoors, decorate it with patio umbrellas. They are a a great option when accessorizing your patio or deck. These umbrellas offer two main benefits: they provide a stylish touch to your outdoor furniture and protect you and guests from the rays of the sun.

Go for colorful patio umbrellas

Modern patio umbrellas come in various different styles, shades and designs and you can easily purchase them according to the decor of your patio or deck. You’ll be amazed at how much just one accessory – a patio umbrella can liven up the entire look of your space! We suggest going for bold colors when choosing patio umbrellas, such as this red Alfresco Home patio umbrella, or this blue All Things Cedar teak furniture umbrella.

If you already have bright and colorful modern outdoor furniture, then there are also nice umbrellas in neutral shades that will complement your décor. What’s great about patio umbrellas is, they compliment any outdoor setting. Since they come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and fabrics, you have a lot to choose from!

When choosing a patio umbrella, consider the following:

  • Sturdy design (strong pole!)
  • Freestanding options
  • Stainless Steel or Aluminum base
  • Easy to fold away and store
  • Easy to open and close
  • Positional tilting
  • Non-fade quality material or fabric that is durable

Surely you can find your ideal patio umbrella in a patio furniture store. Giving you two benefits in one (design and protection), it surely is a patio accessory worth investing in. Happy shopping!
