You splurged on a new outdoor dining set and comfortable lounge chairs to entertain on the patio this summer, but something’s lacking from your sitting area. We suggest adding a stylish outdoor rug to tie it all together and allow your outdoor living space to become an extension of your interior. And with the unlimited variety of outside rugs available to choose from, there is sure to be one that compliments your needs and tastes perfectly. Outdoor rugs are designed to reflect the same trends and styles found in interior floor coverings, but are made specifically for outdoor use, whether you are decorating a porch, patio, veranda or solarium.
The innovative use of both natural and synthetic woven materials allow outdoor rugs to be durable enough to handle all weather conditions. (For these reasons, outdoor rugs are commonly used in high-traffic interior areas too, such as entryways or mud rooms.) Natural fibers such as sisal, hemp, jute, and seagrass are very strong, sound-absorbent, sustainable, and add lots of texture to your space.
Choose a Size and Shape.
You may want to use different rugs to define spaces, such as a sitting area, or under a dining set. If you are placing the rug under furniture, it is suggested to have either all of the furniture legs on the rug, or just the front legs.
Pick a Pattern.
Gone are the days of muted brown outdoor rugs. These floor coverings are now available in brightly-colored solids, stripes, geometrics and more. To determine which is right for your space, consider what will compliment your existing furnishings and how much of the rug will be visible. A bold pattern may be fun peeking out from under a dining table, but too overwhelming standing alone.
