Patio Umbrellas 

Outdoor patio umbrellas are essential to any outdoor living space. They provide much-needed shade on hot summer days and offer a nice touch of beauty and color to your backyard space. Outdoor patio umbrellas are primarily used on a patio or deck. However, people place them in a nearby garden, front yards, poolsides, and in the middle of an outdoor dining set. Having an outdoor table umbrella makes dining outdoors comfortable and straightforward. 

Watson’s has a wide selection of patio umbrellas and bases, all at the guaranteed lowest price in the USA. Before purchasing your patio umbrella, here is a guide to deciding the size, style, and features you will need for your outdoor space. 

Umbrella Size

Size is an essential factor when choosing your new outdoor umbrella. If the deck or patio umbrella is too small, you might not receive enough shade or coverage from lousy weather. However, if the umbrella size is too large, you might have issues with the surrounding area. Tree branches, tall shrubbery, and other environmental factors could make it difficult to open and close your patio umbrella. At Watson's, each outdoor umbrella comes in various sizes to ensure that you can find the perfect umbrella for your patio. Outdoor patio umbrellas can come in a 10 foot or greater height, with a top width of 9 to 13 feet in diameter. 

Umbrella Style

The most popular style of outdoor umbrellas is the standard Market umbrella. These come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Market umbrellas have an upright design, with a pole in the center that runs down and anchors into the base directly below. The pole is often positioned inside an umbrella hole in a table, which is often called an outdoor table umbrella. There are other styles of umbrellas too, like the free-standing Cantilever umbrella. 

Cantilever umbrellas, also known as offset umbrellas, have a free-standing pole offset on one side instead of the center of a Market umbrella. Compared to Market umbrellas, cantilever umbrellas typically offer more flexibility in the free-standing adjustment mechanisms. Cantilever umbrellas are useful for large outdoor dining sets since their free-standing poles do not need to be positioned in the dining table's center. They are often larger than usual market umbrellas, but they are also available in small sizes. 

Other styles and materials can be found to match your outdoor space and decor. Patio umbrellas can be free-standing with poles in the middle or with a pole on one end (Market and Cantilever). Sunbrella is top-notch fabric choice for a colorful and vibrant umbrella that is made with high-performance and mildew-resistant polyester fabric. 

For minimal outdoor decorating, select a patio umbrella set, so everything matches. You can even choose a solar-lit umbrella or patio umbrella with lights built-in for a dazzling nighttime look. 

Umbrella Features

Outdoor patio umbrellas can include unique features that come in handy when the sun moves throughout the day or if you want to move patio furniture around. Tilting an umbrella is the most common feature people utilize with their outdoor umbrellas. The umbrellas are designed to block sunlight that can be overbearing during the hot summer months. 

Tilting mechanisms include manual tilts, collar tilts, pushbuttons, and rotational tilts. There are many other types of tilt mechanisms available to best suit you and your guests' needs when entertaining outdoors. These mechanisms come in a push-up, crank, pulley/pin, and latch/lever options.

Other popular patio umbrella features include swivels, built-in lighting, easy-crank functionality, collapsible poles, and wind vents for better airflow. Keep these essential product features in mind when purchasing a patio umbrella. 

Bases and Covers

Outdoor patio umbrella bases are built to keep your umbrella anchored and in place during inclement weather. Patio tables that go through an outdoor dining table need a secure umbrella stand, even if the patio dining table itself is steadying it. 

Watson's offers stands and bases made of wood, plastic, or metal, all designed to look beautiful next to a patio umbrella and the rest of your outdoor furniture. 

Your outdoor umbrella or table umbrella size determines the weight needed in the base to keep the unit steady on your deck or patio. 

If you plan to move your outdoor patio umbrella consistently, choose umbrella stands with wheels built-in. Stands with wheels let you roll your umbrella to various outdoor areas. They can provide shade by the pool, fire pit, grill, and more. 

Watson's makes it easy to choose umbrellas that fit your lifestyle. Our standard and decorative canopy bases typically do not require assembly and are measured and designed to fit most patio dining tables. Some umbrella bases may be included with the umbrella or sold separately. Bundle options may vary.
