28 Stunning Outdoor Rugs: In Every Shape, Size, and Style

Today’s trends are offering up so many cozy, comfy and beautiful options to bring the indoors out. From throw pillows to furniture, we’re seeing our patios and decks become “rooms” of their own.

Accessorizing our homes is one of the best ways we can show off our own signature style. It’s especially nice to find pieces that are both beautiful and functional. One of those essential pieces are rugs, which have a way of tying a room together. There’s no reason rugs shouldn’t do the same for our outdoor spaces as well.

While finding a rug that blends just the right colors and materials for a lanai or a screened-in porch can be the perfect way to finish a space, they can also be essential when it comes to protecting the surface of your deck or patio from outdoor furniture.

Depending on how much traffic is moving through your patios, decks and porches, how much weather your outdoor spaces are exposed to, and the functions they serve will determine which outdoor rugs are right for you. Let’s explore several options.
