Which Size Do I Choose – Small 10 x 10 Canopy Tent Or Medium 10 x 20 Canopy Tent

So you have decided you want to buy a canopy tent and you are struggling to just decide which tent to go for. A 10 x 10 canopy tent or a 10 x 20 canopy tent, well we are here to help you decide which tent will be right for you.

First thing you want to be thinking about is how many people you want to fit into your tent and that will be attending your event. With a 10 x 10 canopies I would say you will get around 10-15 people OK and not be crammed in too much. With a 10 x 20 canopy you would be able to comfortably get in 20-25 people. Of course you could fit more in, but to stand comfortably and spaced out chatting I would say around those numbers. More if they were children of course.

If you wanted people seated I think it’s best to go for the 10×20 canopy as you are going to be very squeezed into a 10×10 canopy to be honest with tables, but if you are having a table function it would also be recommended to go as big as you can afford and look more into a party tent.

A 10 x 10 canopy tent is ideal to use for travelling around, maybe you visit trade shows or often attend outdoor events then having a 10×10 tent is ideal to fit better into your car and they take less time and effort to get set up, also most trade shows will have a space restriction and might charge more for larger tents.

There is also the budget differences with the sizes, the 10×10 canopy tents are often cheaper but check around for prices as you can get some great bargains on 10×20 canopies and can find that they are not too much more in expense.

What’s the difference then between a canopy tent and a normal tent?

Well a canopy tent is not really designed for sleeping in and is more for shelter from the sun and rain, it has sides that you can take away just leaving you with the option of just having a roof to shelter and they don’t tend to come with a flooring like tents will. Tents are designed more for spending the night in but do offer rain and UV protection too.

Lastly with a 10 x 20 canopy tent you often can use them for lots more things with their added space value, they can be used to store lots of things like an extra vehicle or something you might be working on that you don’t want to be outside, maybe you are moving house and it can then be used for storage, even would come in for decorating a room, store all your furniture whilst you decorate the room.

Anyway below we have listed you some of the best 10 x 10 and 10 x 20 canopy tents that are available and come highly recommended. Have a shop around and sum up your needs and see which size is going to best suit you and what you desire.
