Transitioning from an apartment to a single-family home with a patio means you will need to do some furniture shopping. Although you may have a few furniture pieces for the inside, you may not have anything to use for the patio. This is when you will want to make the best purchases because you can turn your patio into an inviting place to spend time right after moving in.
Although you will want to buy the essential components for patio furnishings such as seating and tables, you should also consider buying patio umbrellas to fill out the space.

Protect Furniture

An ideal reason to get umbrellas is for protecting furniture. For instance, you may want to set up a small table in the patio, but the patio cover may not provide enough protection. If it were to rain, the contents on the table might get damaged because of water exposure. You can set up an umbrella in a way to prevent water from contacting anything that you have on the table.

Avoid Sunburns

If you want to do everything you can to protect your skin, you should wear sunscreen and stay covered to avoid overexposure to the sun. Although wearing sunscreen will give you decent protection, you will benefit from having patio umbrellas that cover the sun while you are relaxing.

Attach Items

Another way that you can use patio umbrellas is by attaching items to the pole. For instance, if you are about to use your pool and you want to put your shirt somewhere, you can attach a storage hook to the pole and then drape the shirt on the hook to keep it from getting dirty. You can even hang something such as a spray bottle that you can mist yourself with to cool down.
