Patio FurnitureIt’s hard to start thinking about summer furniture when battling freezing temperatures. But this is the perfect time to start planning that patio space. It won’t be long before friends and family are over to enjoy barbecues, relaxing visits to your outdoor living space, and a quiet spot to relax.

Consider

  • Appearance – of course, you want great looking furniture to make your outdoor space attractive. The better it looks, the more people will want to be there. Fabric pattern, style, and how it will integrate with the rest of your outdoor decor.Patio Furniture: Cayman Side Chair - outdoor furniture & patio furniture for sale To make outdoor spaces more exciting, Cheng suggests mixing and matching textures – for example, rope and ceramic stone. 1 Off-kilter shapes add a sense of spontaneity.  2
  • Size – Does it make your patio look small and crowded? Does it enhance the spaciousness? Is it easy to maneuver around?
  • Materials – Do you need something that can withstand outdoor exposure all year long? Will you cover it or move it in inside? The materials it is made of will also impact the price. Cast iron is more expensive than aluminum but more durable and more cumbersome. Wood (teak) is much more expensive and harder to maintain. Peggy Bels of Peggy Bels Interior Design says, “Furniture used for rooftops and balconies needs to be durable. I favour Sunbrella fabrics because they don’t fade in the sun. This is especially important for darker colours.” 3 Easy to wash and designed to be mildew- and UV-resistant, Sunbrella materials come in a wide palette and can be used for cushions, furniture, and umbrellas.

 

With a little forethought, you can plan out the perfect patio living space. The off-season is a great time to be buying as prices will unlikely be cheaper.

    Cleaning Outdoor Patio FurnitureParticularly in the northern states, many people are cleaning outdoor patio furniture in preparation for storing it for next year. Even in the South, where we can continue to use our outdoor patio furniture nearly all year long, it requires some occasional cleaning. We at My Umbrella Shop would like to give you a few pointers on that.

    Cleaning Outdoor Patio Furniture 6 Ft. Commercial BenchMetal Outdoor Patio Furniture

    Most aluminum outdoor patio furniture has been powder coated to protect it from rusting. We suggest washing the aluminum outdoor patio furniture, then applying automotive wax for extra protection. Touch up any scratches with car paint in the appropriate color.

    Wrought iron outdoor patio furniture is considerably more sturdy, but any exposed iron is susceptible to rust. Remove any rust with a fine wire brush, then lightly coat the outdoor patio furniture with an exterior spray paint designed for wrought iron. Finally, cover with a quality tarp until spring or store indoors, perhaps in a garage or basement to protect it from the winter weather.

    Fabrics

    Cleaning Outdoor Patio Furniture 3 Pc. Bistro Furniture Set (Fremont Collection)Just like umbrella fabrics, outdoor patio furniture fabric is designed to deter mildew, but acrylic fabrics can still harbor mold if the fabric remains dirty. To avoid black spots, vacuum or shake off your cushions and umbrella at the end of the outdoor season, and keep anything stuffed with foam in a dry space for the winter.

    For really tough stains, use diluted bleach/detergent mix (one less than cup bleach to a gallon of water, with a squirt of detergent), but don’t use bleach on any cotton or printed fabrics — just use soap and water. Be sure to test a small hidden area of the fabric before using any bleach solution to test it for discoloration prior to cleaning the whole piece.

    Replacment?

    Beach umbrellas and patio umbrellasWith all the tropical storms hitting the South this year and the few stories this summer of the wind catching beach umbrellas and hurting people, My Umbrella Shop thought it would be a good idea to post a few safety tips about your beach umbrellas and patio umbrellas.

    Beach Umbrellas and Patio Umbrellas

    If it’s windy, take it down. There is no sense in risking damage to someone else, your patio, home, or even your umbrella by leaving it up when it is windy outside. Beach umbrellas and patio umbrellas are designed to be closable. If it’s that windy, it’s unlikely that you will need it for protection from the sun or will even be sitting under it. Once closed, secure it somewhere it will not blow away. Do yourself, and others, a favor and take down the beach umbrellas and patio umbrellas when it’s windy.

    Beach umbrellas and patio umbrellas - 50 lb. Cast Iron Umbrella Base - MyUmbrellaShop.com umbrella bases
    50 lb. Cast Iron Umbrella Base – MyUmbrellaShop.com umbrella bases

    If it’s only slightly windy, anchor it securely. A beach umbrella or patio umbrella can create a great environment of relaxation, enjoyment, and entertainment. But, if it is slightly windy, our first advice is to close it and secure it. But if you must have a beach umbrella to protect you from the sun (and who doesn’t enjoy one?), be sure to anchor it securely in the sand. Please read our article about “Anchoring Your Beach Umbrella.” Even a good anchoring may not secure your beach umbrella from a sudden surprise gust of wind. If using a patio umbrella, be sure to secure it with an umbrella base designed for your umbrella. Inserting your umbrella in a patio table designed for it is also a secondary way to anchor it in place. Regardless, do not underestimate Mother Nature. Strong gusts of wind can overcome the best base and table combination. Err on the side of safety.

    Beach umbrellas and patio umbrellas can create a wonderful space to enjoy fresh air and the great outdoors while protecting yourself from the harmful and overheating rays of the sun and even light rain, but at My Umbrella Shop, we want you to use your umbrellas safely and securely for years to come.

    Storing Your Beach Umbrella or Patio UmbrelllaAll good things must come to an end and summer is one of the them. And even though your patio umbrella may be useful throughout most of the year, the time will come for storing your beach umbrella or Patio Umbrellla.

    Purge or Keep that Beach Umbrella & Summer Gear?

    This may be a good opportunity to look at ALL your summer time equipment and decide if it is time to purge the worn out or unused gear. If it’s not too badly worn, you can donate it to a 501-C charity (such as Goodwill) and get a tax deduction for it. It’s important to note that whenever you donate non-cash items to a recognized charity that you must have a photograph of it for verification.

    Storing Your Beach Umbrella or Patio Umbrellla

    When Storing Your Beach Umbrella or Patio Umbrellla, use mesh bags or ventilated containers as opposed to watertight containers which may cause the moisture within your beach umbrella or patio umbrella to mildew and stink. Airtight containers, such as plastic tubs or bags can collect condensation over the winter months from changes in temperature. Condensation will magnify and result in a stinky, mildew-damaged beach umbrella.

    Beach Umbrellas vs. Patio UmbrellasWhen choosing an umbrella to purchase, there are some things you should know. First, a Beach Umbrella and a Patio Umbrella are two different animals. They may look the same, but they have different requirements of which you should be aware.

    Beach Umbrellas vs. Patio Umbrellas

    When comparing Beach Umbrellas vs. Patio Umbrellas they may look very similar, they probably both shade you well, but

    • Patio umbrellas tend to be much heavier. You are not carrying them as much as you would a beach umbrella.
    • The poles on Patio Umbrellas need to be thicker to avoid snapping.
    • The poles on Patio Umbrellas fit inside a table hole and a base.
    • Patio umbrellas require a base, and beach umbrellas don’t.
    • Patio umbrellas tend to have a flat bottom pole. Flat bottoms are the least effective for digging or “planting,” though of course, they’re also the safest when it comes to potential impaling.
    • Beach umbrellas need a pointed bottom to spike into the sand.

    Beach Umbrellas vs. Patio Umbrellas Materials

    Aluminum is lightweight, which makes it easier to carry. It will also show ear long before it is likely to break. Wood is more decorative and may be a better choice for a patio umbrella. Plastic, fiberglass, or PVC frames and poles can be good choices aswell, as long as the diameter of the pole is at least an inch wide, and the plastic feels sturdy.

    Labor Day approaches, and many think about putting away their beach umbrellas for the winter. STOP! A quick look on Google will tell you that (in Myrtle Beach, SC for example), September is the 4th hottest month of the year (barely missing the 3rd hottest temperatures) with an average high temperature of 83 degrees. That’s excellent beach temperatures and time to use that beach umbrella to keep cool.

    Keep that Umbrella Out! Summer is Not Over!Patio Umbrellas Can Stay Out Even Longer

    While beach umbrellas keep you cool at the beach, a patio umbrella can not only shade you from the sun, but also provide a nice extended patio area for entertaining, relaxing, or enjoy your family.  You can enjoy the benefits of a patio umbrella long into the fall months. Solar umbrellas on your patio can even be useful, decorative, and enjoyable at night.

    Renting outdoor furniture can be expensiveYou’re thinking about renting some outdoor furniture instead of buying. You may want to re-think that. Renting outdoor furniture instead of buying can be pricey.  Renting furniture is about convenience, and that comes at a price.  Buying quality outdoor furniture is an investment that can last for years of enjoyment at a fraction of the cost.

    Is Renting Outdoor Furniture Even An Option?

    Some rental businesses offer outdoor furniture, but a lot of it is geared toward event planners. They usually rent large tables and chairs that someone may use for outdoor weddings and parties, although it is possible that some of it may be used for patios and decks.

    Compare Costs for Renting Outdoor Furniture

    Cort, a national rental chain, does have some options for renting garden furniture, but you are going to want to comparison shop these prices. A 3-month lease on a single padded armchair costs $202.50.

    If you want a dining table and four chairs at Cort, that costs $147 per month, bringing the three-month total to $441. And, if you wanted them for a shorter period, such as just a month (the shortest term available), that same table and four chairs would still cost you the same $441. For that price, you might be able to BUY a table and barstools. And use it for a lifetime.

    Before You Go Renting Outdoor Furniture

    Compare prices between a reputable vendor and your rental agreement. You may pay a bit more buying, but it lasts a much longer time than the rental term. Do the math.
