A patio umbrella is as functional as it is attractive. Pair one with your patio dining set to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays, relentless sun, and rainy days. The two most basic forms of umbrella are tableside and freestanding. The freestanding umbrellas are generally taller stay upright by being attached to a heavy base. There are also table umbrellas which fit into a pre-made hole in the table's surface. Both kinds work equally well. From here, they are further categorized as being either manually operated or automatic. Manual umbrellas must be opened by hand, usually by a basic rope pulley mechanism. Once open, they normally secure with a peg and hole. An automatic umbrella opens with a crank or button, and there are also auto tilt umbrellas which operate the same way, but tilt further than straight up and down. Once open, these umbrellas can be adjusted to tilt in various directions so that the direction of the shade can be controlled as the sun crosses from east to west.
When choosing your patio ensemble, ensure that they are able to be moved easily if necessary. Wicker furniture is light weight and so it is easy to move if you are anticipating extremely bad weather or high winds or are just storing away your furniture at the end of the season. In addition to being easy to move, the lightweight nature of wicker dining sets makes them easy to stack and store.
The fact that modern wicker furniture is weather resistant is what has made it such a popular addition to the patio furniture line up. While many natural materials as well as plastic can discolour or fade in the sun, modern wicker furniture will not. What's more, you can even leave your new patio furniture set out in the winter without it warping, bending, or becoming damaged thanks to the rain. These qualities also make it beneficial for use in conservatory furniture.
Recently, the furniture world has embraced the form of the elegant high dining table, which has in turn influenced many a patio dining set. Also known as gathering height and balcony tables, these are raised about half a foot higher than typical tables, or on average 36" high. Chair seats typically measure in at 26 inches, which means more leg room than normal height tables. This unique realm is in between dining table and bar height, so it's not uncomfortably high, but noticeably so. The chairs of a high dining set are specifically designed for convenience, and are supposedly easier to get into and out of than are barstools. There are even some chairs which swivel to accommodate. The resulting feeling can either be more formal than a normal table, or more akin to bar-side dining, depending on the surrounding ambience of the décor and the occasion itself. The high patio dining set also gives a more modern look, but is useful in certain spots where a good view is to be enjoyed, as over a tall fence or wall. It would not however be ideal in areas that are already adequately elevated, like roof decks and could give users the adverse effect of feeling too high up. For indoors, balcony tables look great in cathedral ceiling and loft spaces.
