Outdoor awning and patio furniture

Awnings, canopies, and umbrellas are an excellent way to create some shade and protection from the elements when outdoors, and generally quite safe to use, as long as you follow some simple and common sense tips when using them.

The most common injuries that can occur from these outdoor shade makers include pinches and cuts when setting up and adjusting, as well as head injuries in the case of strong winds that knock the item over. Take your time when making adjustments and do not use a canopy or umbrella in extreme or inclement weather in order to avoid or prevent injuries. Do not install metal awnings when there is potential for lightning.

With the above information in mind, here are 45 of the awnings, canopies, and umbrellas that we consider to be the best, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.
