Property Management Commercial Grade Umbrellas

Choosing the right pool umbrella for your pool deck is more important than it sounds. The right umbrella will not only make your pool deck stand out but also offer adequate shading during the harsh summer heat. There are many materials, shapes, and sizes of umbrella options available and this will all depend on your pool deck, budget, and personal preference. If you’re unsure or second-guessing your choice, don’t stress- we have a guide to help you to choose the right umbrella to make your pool deck comfy and beautiful.

Choosing according to your location

Where is your pool deck situated? Where you place your outdoor umbrella and its location in relation to the pool is important to determine which umbrella is suitable for you. If you want an umbrella that will be placed in the center of a patio, choose a center post umbrella that will stand firmly in the middle and provide enough shade. If you want to place your umbrella offset next to your pool patio furniture or aside from a patio set, a cantilever umbrella will be ideal.

Choosing the correct size

In order to adequately cover your pool decking area, you need to measure the square footage of the space you want to cover. Use a measuring tape and measure the length and width of your area, then multiply those two numbers together to get the area in feet squared (ft2). From this calculation, you can make sure you get the right size to cover all sunny areas.

Choosing the correct shape

There are a variety of shapes available depending on your style and taste. For a modern look, you may consider a square or rectangular shape. The square or rectangular shapes have clean lines and edges that go with all decor. If you want a boho or chic look, you may want to consider a round umbrella.

Choosing good quality

You want umbrellas that will be sturdy during harsh weather, and be safe enough for kids to play around. Choose umbrellas that are water-resistant and made of good quality material. Umbrellas such as Cantilever umbrellas are made from tough materials and come in a variety of colors to suit any theme.

Choosing good colors

You want your umbrella to stand out while offering good shade. Choosing bright colors is a good way to add some fun to the sun, or you can match your umbrella to your decor. Choosing a company that lets you customize your design and color is a good option in this regard.
