How to find the right umbrella and base
You can either choose an umbrella and base separately or buy them together as a complete set. You’ll want to consider the sizing of your outdoor space, the amount of shade you want, and the style of umbrella that will complement your outdoor area.
There are three types of umbrellas to choose between. There’s the classic umbrella on a stand, with a pole that goes in the middle. This is a common addition to a dining set equipped with a umbrella hole - a perfect set-up if your outdoor space is restricted, since your outdoor table and umbrella will occupy the same space.
If you’d like to control the shade, a freestanding or hanging umbrella is a great option. By tilting the umbrella according to where the sun is, you can enjoy cooling shade from early morning until sunset.
You can also choose the half umbrella and base. This is an umbrella and base made to fit the limited space of a balcony or a small patio. Place it along the wall or a balcony rail for safe and shaded lounging during a sunny day.
Umbrella bases support the umbrella. A sturdy base ensures stability and prevents your umbrella from flying off if the weather gets rough. But umbrella bases are not universal. They come in different shapes and weights, designed to fit specific parameters. After selecting your new umbrella, always check the product description to confirm with which base it is compatible.
At IKEA you’ll find garden umbrella bases made from heavy concrete or bases that can be filled with sand to achieve an appropriate weight. Bases do a great job of keeping the umbrellas stable, however we recommend you fold the umbrella when not in use, especially during windy days. Taking proper care of your umbrellas ensures maximum durability.
