Some of the most intense sunshine and steamy temperatures occur in late summer in the San Diego area. That is why it is important to keep yourself protected from the sun’s rays by regularly applying sunscreen and providing lots of shaded areas for relief in your backyard. Outside of the ordinary patio umbrella, here are a few clever cover ups for your outdoor living room sure to look great and provide protection at the same time.
When you have a sizable area to cover up, a large canvas canopy such as this Sail Butterfly Sunshade by Barlow Tyrie, which is a generous 16.5’ x 1,0’ (there is a smaller size available, as well), is just the ticket. It is long enough to provide shade for most outdoor dining tables and sofas and thus a much easier option that trying to find and combine more than a single tilt umbrella. Its sturdy base will ensure that this canvas canopy won’t go flying off in a strong wind and its white shade color and transitional style are sure to go with any style of décor.
