Escape the glaring sun with outdoor patio umbrellas

With more people staying at home these days, Sonoma area residents may be spending a majority of their summer lounging out on their patios. While this can be a lot of fun when you’re hanging out at home, it’s easy to forget that you can still get sunburned while being outside.

You might use a hat and sunscreen to protect yourself from harmful UV rays, but sunscreen takes time to both apply and kick-in, and you may get tired of wearing a hat all the time. Fortunately, there is a more relaxing, convenient way to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun


You know that outdoor patio umbrellas are a hit when your kids congregate under them or when visiting family members go straight to them. It’s like hiding out under a well-shaded tree—it’s cooler and the light is milder. It’s one of the simple luxuries of life that doesn’t cost much and feels really good.

If you have big patio umbrellas, you can casually walk out into your back door without worrying about sunscreen. You can surf the internet, read a book, watch a movie, and enjoy a tall cool glass of whatever makes you happy.

The rest of your household can join you under your small forest of umbrellas. You can have a picnic every day, enjoying our sweet, sunny climate and beautiful views—along with the laughter of family.
