Small patios and balconies are often seen as one of the downsides of apartment or condo living. Often, very little space is available for entertaining, and putting out a couple of chairs and a small table is all that most people can manage. There’s certainly no room for a patio umbrella to keep the sun off while you attempt to dine “al fresco.” There is room, though, for something called an Off the Wall Umbrella.
An Off the Wall Umbrella is a half-canopy patio umbrella that stands flush against a wall or vertical surface, without fasteners or other attachment hardware required. This handy umbrella provides shade to small areas where traditional round umbrellas are not practical or even possible. Unlike fixed awnings over windows or doors, the decorative Off the Wall Umbrella can be moved easily to provide shade and ambience where it’s needed most.
