Patio Umbrellas Protect Your Furniture

By David Maslow

Nowadays many people want to make their dollar stretch if they can and this is especially true for bigger ticket items such as furniture. Even if you don’t use your patio furniture as much as you could, the furniture could get very worn out. If you can make your patio furniture last longer so that you wouldn’t have to spend more money on it in the long run, wouldn’t you? Some ways that you can make your dollar last in your patio furniture is using this simple idea to protect it.

A patio umbrella is the simple solution to combating the sun’s harmful effects. Patio umbrellas are easy to install and not too expensive. And as soon as they are in place, they will constantly protect your patio furniture. There are two types of patio umbrellas that will be considered here:

In Table Umbrella
The first type is one that is built into your table. Only certain tables, however, are made with this capability. You have such a table if it has a small hole in the center of it that fits a patio umbrella pole. If this is the type of table you have, this is your best bet. Just buy any umbrella you think matches, stick it in the whole, and you are done.

Freestanding Patio Umbrella
When you do not have a table to mount an umbrella in, you can buy one with a stand. The strong base allows the umbrella to be placed freestanding anywhere on your patio, offering adjustable protection for your furniture. The stand even offers an opportunity for a flourish of style to accentuate your furniture and other patio decorations.

Attach it to Your Deck
You can find umbrellas that don’t need a stand or a table, but just a surface to grab hold to. This umbrella could be positioned to grip onto the banister on your outdoor bar or onto the banister on the deck. This way the ground is cleared of any additional obstacles. The furniture would have to be position near the railing, however, if embraced this can be a fresh take on your deck space.

Any of these options are great for entertaining guests, preparing for events or designing a great layout for your business. Not only do these options keep people cool and dry, but it also protects the money you’ve already spent on furniture. These various methods are stylish and affordable ways of protecting your patio furniture.
