Introduction to Modern Outdoor Patio Umbrellas
Almost everyone loves the summer and the bright sunshine and, in fact, wait for it all year long. Summertime is one of the most anticipated times. Children don’t have school, giving them more time to enjoy the outdoors. People go on vacations, stay by the pool, or give their local beaches a visit.
Either way, the sun in summers is fun to enjoy and lounge under. However, after a few hours, it can be too much. You might swim all day long in your home pool, but you will need some time away from the sun. If your patio doesn’t already an overhead covering, then modern patio umbrellas are your savior.

We want to make sure you don’t have to stand or sit under the blazing sun. That’s why we use our experience and knowledge to pick pieces created by leading brands in the market. These ensure both quality and aesthetics.
Types of Patio Umbrellas
Your patio should be an extension of your home that you use frequently, especially when you have time to relax and catch some sun. By adding modern patio umbrellas, you can prevent having to sweat under the sweltering sun.
Here at TopModern, you will find a large selection of beautiful and very function al patio umbrellas. From small ones to large ones, they come in all shapes and sizes. When choosing one for yourself, the most important consideration is the space.
If you don’t have a yard and a small patio, a small market umbrella that provides enough shade for one table will be perfect. However, if you have a yard or a pool where you have placed some lounging chairs or an outdoor daybed, a large cantilever umbrella would be more effective.
If you’re confused as to which type of modern patio umbrella is more suitable for your space, here is a brief introduction to some of the most common types:
Market Umbrellas are held down on concrete or another type of heavy base and can be placed anywhere. However, as mentioned previously, they are most popularly used on or near patio tables to provide shade when you dine alfresco.
Cantilever Umbrellas are attached to a long pole that stands free. Unlike market umbrellas, the pole in cantilever umbrellas is at the side. These can be placed near tables or over other patio furniture.
Drape umbrellas can be either market or cantilever. What makes them different is that they have a curtain-like hanging that drapes or hangs over the edge of the entire umbrella. These provide more shade and are often used near pools at an angle.
TopModer’s patio umbrella catalog provides a large selection of various types, styles, and sizes. All you have to do is measure how much space you have and then find one that meets all your requirements.
