Create a Beautiful Backyard Space with an Attractive Patio Shade

If your backyard space already has great furniture and a barbecue, a stylish patio shade may be the final touch you need to create a relaxing and comfortable environment for you and your family. But how do you choose the right patio shade for you?

At ShelterLogic we have a variety of patio shades to choose from, from canopies to shades, and pergola shade cloths; check out some of our selection below.

The Monarc Canopy

Available in two sizes: 10 x 18 ft. and 9 x 16 ft. the Monarc Canopy is an excellent patio shade solution. With its unique arched shape and sturdy steel legs, it offers protection from the elements and gives sun protection that will come in handy on those warm summer days. And we’re not the only ones that love this outdoor patio shade; customers love it too and have consistently given the Monarc Canopy a five star rating!

Works great! Does what I need

Bought this last summer to put on my deck for shade from sun and rain. Works awesome. – Matt, Connecticut

I LOVE IT!!

We bought this canopy to put on our deck for shade. It fits our deck perfectly. Our deck is only 9 feet wide. Every pop up type gazebo is too wide. Then we came across this. Solved our problem. Definitely worth the money. – Donna O, Connecticut, USA

Great quality and design

My husband bought this canopy for his parents and they simply LOVE it! It’s worth every penny. If you buy the less quality canopies from your local stores, and have to replace them or modify them because they are too short, etc., stop wasting your money and buy this canopy! – Outdoorsman, California, USA

The Alumi Max

If you’re looking for a patio shade that’s more rugged than the Monarc Canopy, the Alumi Max might be perfect for you. The ShelterLogic 10 x 10 ft. Alumi-Max is both attractive and incredibly versatile. It’s a sturdy straight leg pop-up canopy made with a premium quality aluminum frame. It features a truss style top that gives it a stylish yet sporty aesthetic, making it perfect for your next outdoor event, or as a reliable multi-season shade solution.

Shade Sails and Shade Cloth

If you’re interested in something that is a bit different than the traditional canopy, a shade sail or the shade cloth may be just what you’re looking for. These attractive patio shades are excellent at providing shade in virtually any outdoor space, so long as there are available anchoring points for installation. The sturdy connection points ensure that this stylish patio shade stays put and offers protection all season long. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, you can view our collection of shade cloth and shade sails here.

Choosing the Perfect Patio Shade

When choosing the outdoor patio shade you’ll want to measure the outdoor space you want to protect, consider the height of the objects you want to cover, and ensure that your shade solutions are properly installed. In some cases – like in the case of the Monarc Canopy, or any of our Pop-Up canopies, you’ll want to be sure your patio shade is properly anchored to the ground. The Monarc Canopy for example comes equipped with temporary spike anchors that are easy to install and set up, whereas for our pop-up canopies you may want to use a canopy anchor bag to ensure your patio shade stays put. For more information, check out the ShelterLogic anchor guide about proper anchoring tips and techniques.

As we noted, our patio shade solutions are not just attractive, they are also functional, practical and easy to install and don’t require additional tools for assembly. Check out our entire selection of shade solutions on our website or contact us for more information.

  • Questions about the shade/sail cloth. 1. What happens to the rain? Do you slope it or does it come right down. 2. With the aluminum poles, what maximum wind speed is tolerable? 3. Would have to take it down in the winter, and back up each spring, how difficult would this be? 4. Is is recommended to attach it to a house?

    • Hi Ben,

      Thanks for reaching out! We can certainly assist you with these questions.
      1. These Shade Sails/Cloth are made of breathable polyethylene which will allow rain to pass through and will not collect or pool water.
      2. We do not offer the Aluminum poles or any mounting structure.
      3. We do suggest removing during the winter months to avoid the weight of snow accumulation possibly damaging your Shade product. Depending on the mounting method chosen this should be fairly easy.
      4. Many customers do attach this to the siding of their homes. The mounting of the Sails/Cloth is up to creativity of the customer.

      Hope this helps!

  • After the heat of last summer, my wife and I are wanting to get some shade for the patio, but we aren’t sure where to start. I like that you mention how shade sails can be anchored to anything in the backyard and remain sturdy all year. This sounds really convenient because we wouldn’t have to take it down and put it up each year. Thanks for sharing!
