7 to 8 Foot Umbrellas are the most versatile sized patio umbrella - a general all-purpose size that fits many spaces and uses. You will also find the most optional features with this size from tilting options to lift mechanisms. Decorative options are also readily available at this size with trims, alternating panels and wind vent choices.
A 7 to 8 Foot Umbrella is ideally sized for tables that seat from four to eight diners in round, hexagonal or octagon shapes. For patio seating, this size umbrella will shelter two to four chairs or a pair of chaise lounges. For very large seating areas, consider placing two or more umbrellas at either end to shade the entire space.
