Summer is here - and so are the outdoor activities that go with it! It's definitely time to start getting your outdoor spaces looking smart for summer fun. Let's look at 5 ways you can get your patio table ready for summer.

1. Replace the Table Top

First things first: many people tell us that their patio tabletop glass broke over the winter. Whether it was from improper storage, neglect, or winter storm damage, this scenario definitely puts a damper on your summer. If your patio table has a broken or damaged glass (or other material) top, you can easily replace it with our full selection of custom patio table tops and in-stock patio table tops. You can choose from our round, square, or rectangle options. During the customization process, you can choose the edge finishes you want (such as an attractive beveled edge) and even get a hold drilled in the center for your umbrella! For special shapes live chat with us, there is nothing we cannot do!

2. Give Your Patio Table a Great Cleaning

If your table is lucky enough to have survived the winter in one piece, then perhaps all that's needed is a good spring cleaning. A power washer or the traditional bucket full of hot, sudsy water should be enough for the frame or pedestal of your patio table. For the glass, you can stick with the traditional Windex or vinegar/water mixture. But for a deep clean like the professionals use, you absolutely need to try our glass cleaning products. These industrial-strength glass cleaners are what we use to clean glass in our manufacturing facility and in our customer's homes -- so you know it has to be good!


3. Choose a Great Umbrella

There are an overwhelming amount of outdoor patio table umbrellas to choose from at any given time. But we think one is going to be a standout in 2018! Why? Two words: LED lights. Check out this Solar LED lighted Umbrella

If you happen to be buying a replacement patio table glass top, you can get a center hole drilled for your umbrella. You can customize the size of the umbrella hole to 1", 2", or 4", with 2" being the most common size. The umbrella hole comes with a seamed edge for safety.


4. Banish the Bugs

You might be able to banish the bugs and set the mood at the same time with citronella. Whether it is in the form of candles, essential oils, or even a potted citronella plant, this natural product is said to drive off mosquitos. While science doesn't always agree, it just wouldn't be summer without that scent. And, the candles can be purchased in any style to match your decor, making for a romantic summer evening getaway, right in your own backyard.

This beauty from Anthropologie is basically the mother of all citronella candles. With 17 wicks, it is a long-burning candle made to last. Scoop this one up before it is gone for the season!


5. Cozy Up with Cushions

Last but not least, it's time to put on the finishing touches. One of the best places we've found to shop for beautiful patio cushions is Wicker Warehouse. Their selection is simply enormous, so if you have something in mind, you'll be able to find it there. Plus, they produce a durable, long-lasting product that you'll be able to enjoy for years.

Whether you have to do a full rehab of your patio furniture and order a new glass top, or it just needs a deep cleaning or some accessories, we hope this helps you get your patio ready for summer!
