Not sure what style fits your aesthetic and home best when searching for indoor outdoor rugs? Don’t worry, we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below on inspiration when browsing, styling tips, and explore our well-curated line of designs.
Choosing A Rug For Your Outdoor Space
The versatility of an indoor outdoor rug means that you have several different areas both inside and outside your home you can layer it into. If you enjoy gazing up at the stars while spending time outside, then you will need an outdoor rug that can withstand the elements, but is soft and comfortable enough to lay on. If you would rather use an outdoor rug as a grounding element for an outdoor dining area, deck space, or patio lounge, choosing a neutral colored area rug may be a better option.
How To Choose The Right Sized Outdoor Rug
When you decide to buy outdoor area rugs, consider the space, and get your dimensions right. In general, bigger is usually better when it comes to rug size. A large-scale rug for your outdoor living room, dining room, or gathering spaces acts as an anchor and makes the area feel cozy and conversational. If a rug is too small, your space can feel bare and disconnected. So, make sure to confirm the dimensions of the area, inside or out, before you buy an indoor outdoor rug.
The size and shape of an indoor outdoor rug that works for your space depend entirely on its placement. For instance, outdoor living space rugs should fit under all of the main pieces of furniture, or at the very least under the front legs of your outdoor sofa or chairs. For dining and entertaining spaces, try an 8’x10’ or 9’x12’ sized patio rug to place under your outdoor dining table for added texture and visual interest. To create areas or zones in your outdoor space, a round outdoor rug can work to ground an intimate seating area.
All-Weather Rug Construction
Our selection of outdoor rugs is made from synthetic fibers. Made to handle extreme weather, messes, and scratches, both polypropylene and recycled polyester (PET) rugs are weather-resistant and durable. That resilience makes these patio rugs ideal accents for both outdoor and high-traffic indoor spaces.
What separates our outdoor rug collection is that most are also artisan handcrafted. Whether handwoven or hand-knotted, these labor-intensive processes are also time-intensive, making each outdoor area rug incredibly special and unique. Because of their material construction and handmade process, these distinctive styles are meant to be long-lasting accents in your home.
Outdoor Rug Styles
Boho, Moroccan + Persian Outdoor Rugs
Traditional, Persian and Moroccan-style outdoor rugs add vintage appeal to a room. Classic styles often have deep hues like burgundy, gold, and navy, adding warmth and richness to any space. More modern designs feature softer, more neutral tones. Our outdoor rug collection features traditional-style pieces similarly in modern color palettes. This Rebekah Indoor / Outdoor Rug, with its geometric pattern, textured weave, and warm ivory hues is a fresh accent to add throughout your home, inside or out.
Modern Outdoor Rugs
To reflect modern home architecture or add a contemporary edge to your outdoor space, choose a rug with a stripes, geometric prints, or solid colors. Modern outdoor rugs like the Navila Indoor / Outdoor Rug with its monochromatic color palette can add a simple yet bold accent for your deck, patio, or pool area.
Reversible Outdoor Rugs
One of the major benefits of an outdoor area rug is its reversible design. This allows you to both lessen the wear and tear of a style by flipping it over and refresh the look of your space. For styles like our Mindi Reversible Indoor/Outdoor Rug, its color palette has also been inverted, switching from a deep indigo ground to a natural one featuring a richly-detailed indigo pattern. That reversal really lets you play with colors and set a different feel for your space depending on what side you style your outdoor rug.
Handwoven from natural fibers, our doormats are simple, functional everyday essentials that warmly welcome your guests and keep dirt from tracking throughout your home. These durable indoor/outdoor rugs are ideal right outside your entryway or inside a mudroom.
Whichever way you decide to style it, remember that your outdoor rug allows you the flexibility to showcase the nuances of your design aesthetic. Loved ones and visitors can then immediately get a sense of who you are by seeing how you utilize this accent to build on your home's look. Whether you are in search of statement-making flat weave kilims, vintage-inspired outdoor area rugs, or timeless and textural patio rugs, all of these exclusive pieces evolve your space's style.
