Rain or too much sun makes it difficult to enjoy outdoor spaces. With a good quality outdoor umbrella, you’ll be able to expand your outdoor living space and enjoy the outdoors more often. Adding an outdoor umbrella is a simple way to create an outdoor retreat that functions as an entertainment area and additional luxurious living space. Here are some tips from the team at Dress Your Space in Geelong, on picking the right umbrella for you.

Stay Outdoors for Longer with Instant Shade Umbrellas

Adding an outdoor umbrella to your patio space allows you to enjoy the space regardless of whether it’s raining or if the sun is beating down. Instant shade umbrellas offer a compact, convenient option that allows you to quickly access protection from the elements with a simple pulley system.

Add Versatility with a Tilt Shade Umbrella

A tilt shade umbrella allows you to adjust the angle of the umbrella for ultimate control over shade. This gives you the flexibility to enjoy the outdoors regardless of the elements, giving you the ability to tilt your shade umbrella up to 60° for versatile protection against the sun, rain and wind.

Look for Durable Materials

Most importantly, look for quality durable materials when shopping for outdoor umbrellas. For example, marine-anodised aluminium materials and solution dyed polyester canvas provides for a sturdy structure and guarantees longevity, even in windy, seaside locations. 

At Dress Your Space, our range of outdoor umbrellas offer a 60km per hour wind rating, making them perfect for any patio, balcony, or dining area of your home, restaurant, café, hotel, motel or winery.

Establish a Unique Style in Your Outdoor Space

Outdoor umbrellas come in a wide variety of colours and styles, allowing you to create a unique vibe by cleverly matching or contrasting colours and styles. You can also choose outdoor umbrellas that match your surroundings. For example, add outdoor umbrellas with neutral or earthy hues in areas surrounded by woodland or add brighter tones for a seaside property.
