As more and more people choose to buy garden furniture online for home delivery or click and collect, it's easy to forget some of the essential accessories that are hard to miss when you shop in-store at your local garden centre in Warrington.

Here are some things to keep in mind when you buy garden furniture online and want to get the best patio parasol as part of your order.

Matching parasols for garden furniture brands

The major garden furniture brands offer matching parasols for their most popular patio bistro sets - often included as part of the package.

For example, Bramblecrest garden parasols come as standard with certain Bramblecrest furniture, including some Chatsworth, Blenheim and Henley bistro sets.

If you're adding a patio parasol to your order separately, check whether you also need a parasol base to stand it in, to keep it secure on breezy days.

Contemporary parasols for ease of use

Contemporary parasols for patio furniture often come in a cantilever design with the pole to one side, rather than through the middle of the table - this makes them even more versatile if you want to shelter your garden seating instead of your table.

Because the pole is not through the centre of your garden table, it's much easier to move a contemporary garden parasol into a different position.

This allows you to shield yourself from the sun throughout the day as it moves across the sky.

Patio parasol accessories

As well as a parasol base for extra weight on windy days, there are some other patio parasol accessories you might like to consider for even more enjoyment from your garden furniture.

A parasol heater gives you warmth where you need it most, under cover from the elements, so you can stay outside comfortably for longer.

You may also need a Parasol Heater Ceiling Mount to fix your parasol heater securely into place whether on a ceiling, the roof of a gazebo, or under cover of a cantilever parasol.

Pretty parasol lighting

With a parasol heater you can stay out after dark - so don't forget to add some colourful parasol lighting to your order to give your evenings outside a whimsical feel.

Some examples of outdoor garden lighting suitable for use on or around patio parasols include:

  • Solar-powered Spiralites, which turn on automatically at sunset.
  • Butterfly Firefly String Lights, a cute decoration for parasols and patios.
  • Eureka! Retro and Eureka! NeonEsque Edison-style LED light bulbs.

Add just one or a few outdoor lamps and lanterns for some practical after-dark illumination, or opt for some pretty parasol lighting in multiple colours for a more playful effect.

It's your patio, and your choice - but you need to have a parasol before you can accessorise, so don't forget to add one to your basket when you buy garden furniture online from Bents.
