Rejuvenate Your Patio with a Large Patio Umbrella

To transform your patio in an easy and affordable manner, nothing beats outdoor patio umbrellas. With the help of an outdoor umbrella, you’ll create a cool and shaded area for entertaining. Moreover, outdoor umbrellas will also enhance the visual appeal of your patio area.

As the owner of Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds, a company that offers large patio umbrellas in Sydney, today I will tell you how an outdoor umbrella is all you need to rejuvenate a sad looking patio. But first, we’ll take a look at which types of outdoor umbrellas are most suitable for use in patio areas. Then, I’ll offer you some style suggestions on how to create a modern looking patio space.

Types of outdoor umbrellas that are suitable for patios

From wall mounted to freestanding and cantilever, outdoor umbrellas come in many different types. However, for patio use, you need an umbrella that provides good shade coverage. Also, you need to choose an umbrella that is easy to set up and operate.

Large freestanding umbrellas are a great choice for use in patio areas. While they are very easy to set up and operate, they can also be mounted on or around furniture to provide good shade coverage. More importantly, if you’re on a tight budget, freestanding umbrellas are a great choice. Here, at Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds, our SU2 Market and Café Umbrellas and our Home and Café Umbrellas make for the perfect low-budget patio umbrella.

However, if you’re looking for a more robust and versatile patio umbrella, cantilever umbrellas should be your go-to. Cantilever umbrellas offer maximum shade coverage because of the absence of a central pole. Most cantilever umbrellas are also equipped with a rotating or tilting mechanism which allows you to change the angle of shade as the sun moves. Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds offer large cantilever umbrellas namely, the Rotating and Tilting Cantilever Umbrella, and Shadowspec Serenity Rotating Cantilever Umbrella, all of which, will be perfect for your patio.

Style suggestions to transform your patio

A patio umbrella paired with the right patio furniture is a match made in heaven. Depending on the amount of space available, pair your outdoor patio umbrella with matching patio chairs, a patio table, a patio couch, and a gazebo to give your space a modern look. For furniture materials, wrought iron/cast iron, wicker and teak are the best choices.

If you’re looking to create a modern patio space, you should choose a cantilever umbrella over a market umbrella. Cantilever umbrellas will help you create a more contemporary look as they don’t require the centre post. While this allows for better communication between those sitting below the umbrella, it allows gives you more stylistic freedom when choosing and positioning your patio furniture and decor.


To give your old patio area a makeover on a budget, all you need is a patio umbrella and a few pieces of outdoor furniture. Of all the different types of outdoor umbrellas, freestanding outdoor umbrellas and cantilever outdoor umbrellas are best suited for use in patio areas. Pair large patio umbrellas with matching patio furniture and décor to rejuvenated your space completely.
