Balconies are a great use of a small amount of space. They are compact, but they often give a great vantage point of your land and allow you to enjoy a different view. One of the best ways to make the most out of your balcony is to install an umbrella. Although it may seem unnecessary, it will transform your space and encourage you to use it so much more.
It is highly recommended that you opt for a 6 ft. umbrella for your balcony. Your balcony is already limited in size, you don’t want to feel claustrophobic with a large umbrella bearing down. Finding an umbrella that it at least 6 ft. high means that you can make the most of your space. You can still stretch and stand, you have a full view of everything without the canopy bearing down.
You don’t need to be put off by the height of your umbrella. If you have a small space, you can still buy different-sized canopies to fit your balcony. This can help to prevent feeling as though you are overpowered by an umbrella that is clearly too big. It is also recommended that you opt for a lighter-colored canopy, as that can also encourage feelings of openness and space.
A great option for most balconies is a 6 ft., square umbrella. The square-shaped canopy allows your umbrella to sit neatly aligned with your house and gives you the protection that you are looking for. This Frankford Monterey crank lift model comes with a number of different pole lengths, many over 6 ft. It also comes with an octagonal-shaped canopy, if you would prefer something other than square. The canopies are in different sizes so that you can find one that perfectly fits your balcony. One of the main great features of this particular model is the crank lift, which makes it easier to open and close the canopy. To protect your umbrella you should close it when not in use, which can be harder with traditional mechanisms. But with the crank, all you need to do is turn the handle.
