About Umbrella Bases
An umbrella base is not only functional, but can also add style to your outdoor space. At Ace Hardware you will find a variety of umbrella bases to enhance the look of your patio.
Typically made of resin or cast iron, an outdoor umbrella base serves as an anchor for your patio umbrella. Some resin bases can be filled with sand or water for additional stability. It is important to choose an umbrella base that coordinates with your patio umbrella and is heavy enough to securely hold your umbrella in place, preventing it from tipping or being carried by the wind.
The market umbrella base is the most common base and is typically used for umbrellas that fit into a patio table. The offset umbrella base is used for umbrellas that do not fit within a table but instead sit outside of it, hanging overhead with the use of an arm extension.
Patio umbrella bases can also add style and personality to your patio. Many models are available in a variety of colors and decorative designs that will coordinate with your existing patio set. Both functional and stylish, the outdoor umbrella base is a must-have for your outdoor space.
