A well-chosen garden parasol is ideal for creating ambience in your garden seating area or next to your deckchairs. Bring gorgeous hotel vibes right into your backyard with quality offset parasols from SBF INTERIORS AND OUTDOOR SOLUTIONS LIMITED.

Nowadays, there are plenty of choices, from sophisticated, to bohemian, tropical to modern. There’s a garden parasol work for every kind of garden space.

Some stand alone as a freestanding parasol or come with their own base, while some are designed to slot into a garden table.

Do I want a normal parasol, or a cantilever? 

Normal parasols and umbrellas have minimal flexibility – you can’t really tilt them to alter the cast of their shade. By contrast, a cantilever parasol can flex its ‘hood’ away from the stand, to lend its shade to where you want it to go. 

Cantilever parasols have the benefit of flexibility, the tradeoff is that normal parasols are generally sturdier (if you live in an exposed, windy area, this is a consideration). 


What size should you go for?

At least 2 meters, to ensure a reasonable cast of shade. 2.4 meters is industry standard. Of course, if you have a larger backyard, go for something a little wider.

It’s worth bearing in mind that a larger parasol requires a stronger base unit.
