When purchasing an outdoor patio umbrella it is important to know what type of area you are looking to shade. The diameter of the umbrella will determine how much shade you will receive. See our sizing guide below to determine what size umbrella to purchase:
7’- 8’ Umbrella Shade Diameter: Can shade café and bistro sets up to 36”
9’- 10’ Umbrella Shade Diameter: Can shade up to 48” round or square dining tables with four chairs
11’ Umbrella Shade Diameter: Can shade up to 60" round or square dining tables and 72" oval and rectangular tables with 6 chairs
*As guideline, your umbrella’s diameter should be at least 4’ to 5’ larger than the area you would like to shade. Still not sure what size you need? Call our experts at 888-872-6855 or live chat with us today!
