The chill is still in the air but you can sense the warmer months are just around the corner.. Its time for that spring cleaning- to dust of the outdoor furniture and bring out the umbrellas because warm weather is on its way.

New designs and trends are always springing up each season and with some many shade products on the market it can be difficult do decide.  A good quality commercial grade sunshade is an integral part of a restaurants revenue.

Take a looks at just some of the many restaurants Caravita shades have worked to bring comfort and relaxation to guests and added revenue to the owners pockets.

BIG HORN Steak Restaurant in Norway: Here,  Bajazzo sunshades branded with corporate logos provide shade and rain protection.

As you can see with the  different examples, no shade is created alike.  Especially, giant umbrellas which are a distinctive eye-catcher and provide comfortable enjoyment. The ongoing trend is to install a huge umbrella that is both offering shade protection and an element of  architectural design . CARAVITA offers custom solutions suitable to fit the needs of the space and design challenge. If timeless and  minimalism is your speed or flamboyant and vibrancy is what you are after, the multiple offers of fabric and finish allow you to create something that is right for you.

Outdoor umbrellas are constantly being developed to accommodate the ever changing desires of guests and restaurateurs.  With the use of integrated heating and lighting, the outdoor season can be extended.

Bigger is Better

Four of Caravita's Bajazzo 20 foot umbrellas form a tent in the center of this beautiful outdoor plaza.

At Caravita we manufacture high quality patio umbrellas that range in size from seven to twenty feet.  You may question why would anyone need an umbrella of twenty feet? You would be surprised by how an umbrella of this size could benefit an outdoor space.  Let us take you through the benefits of owning such a large patio umbrella. The umbrella should be at least be 4-5 feet larger than the area being shaded.  Therefore, to shade an area with a table and chairs that seat up to 4 people (approximately 5 feet), an umbrella of at least nine feet would be needed to accomodate the space.  That 4-5 foot rule would apply as the shaded space grows. This is why at  Caravita we offer customization options  based on the arrangement of your outdoor living space.   With our various options from  center masted to cantilevered umbrellas also ranging in color,size, and fabric, we can be sure to cater to any customer’s needs.   As you can see in the image to the right, our large umbrellas like the Bajazzo series are used in groupings to create the effect of forming a large tent.  Check out michaelcaravita.com to view our several other series and customization options!
