Natural-fiber rugs define classic and original style in an organic pattern, but they struggle to survive in the great outdoors, even if that just means your back patio. An outdoor jute rug might not be for you, especially if your outdoor space is exposed to the harsh elements. However, for those who want the backdrop that a jute rug brings on their porch, patio, or deck, outdoor jute rug alternatives can provide durability and the look that you desire.
Your outdoor style can find a way to work with the natural beauty of your backyard, front yard, or zen garden without taking away from that perfect background. Natural-styled rugs can help you achieve this look and make your outdoor space fully functional at the same time.
Jute rugs are naturally hardy rugs, made from the jute plant that grows in India and Bangladesh. The soft plant gets dried and then woven together with other fibers to turn into a thick and durable rug. These jute rugs are often handwoven and can come in many styles, including tassels, borders, and even dyed in black or other natural colors. However, jute rugs may not survive for long outside, especially in garden areas.
Rugs USA offers many stylish outdoor jute-like rugs. These rugs can be laid out in a garden, on a patio, a deck, or a porch, depending on the outdoor space you’d like to claim for your use. The soft beiges, tans, and browns that jute already comes in blend well with your organic escape, whether your environment relies on green, brown, or a host of colors found in your garden. Whether you want an understated outdoor oasis or an exotic greenhouse look, an outdoor jute rug alternative can help you define and use the space for whatever you want.
Transform Your Concrete Jungle with an Outdoor Jute Rug Alternative
Balconies, patios, and small porches can look and feel unwelcoming with bare, sharp edges and undecorated railings. A crisp, natural-styled outdoor rug can soften up the edges, warm up the harsher concrete shades with a warm and welcoming beige or tan, and inspire you to hang up plants, or invest in the small glass table you’ve always wanted. Here are some other ways to incorporate a jute rug into your outdoor space:
Make Your Balcony Functional While Also Cordial
If you live in an apartment or a condo, chances are you have a small, unused balcony. If you don’t know what to do with that space, a small jute runner rug can help you make the balcony a warm breakfast nook for mornings before work, or a place for cocktails after a long hard day. Hang up a couple of planters with vines and begonias, or create a natural outdoor screen with a few sunflower plants in front of the railing.
A warm runner like this Iris Totem Indoor/Outdoor Flatweave Area Rug in light brown comes in multiple colors to match whatever style you’ve chosen to embrace.
Soften Your Patio’s Edges with a Neutral Jute Rug Alternative
If your patio looks cold and rough, a nice outdoor jute rug alternative like a flatweave or a braided tassel rug can welcome both bare feet and all your outdoor furniture. Make it an outdoor dining space for friends and family during warm or dry seasons. Find some lanterns or torches to create lighting during the evening hours. Strings of lights aren’t just for Christmas decorations or parties: They can be for ordinary evenings under the stars as well.
Adirondack chairs paired with an Ashen Braided Tassel Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug in tan can create an atmosphere of inviting shapes that are large enough to sit on and enjoy the outdoors. Plates—or cold cans of beer—can rest on the wide armrests. This rug can withstand the great outdoors and provide the gorgeous, chunky weave you’ve always wanted in an outdoor space.
Broaden Your Deck’s Horizons with Always-Inviting Rugs
A large jute-like rug can help invite more people to come sit on your deck at all times of the day, not just when you’re having a party. If you’re trying to make a garden outside but don’t have much space, using your deck as a plant holder with a seating area to enjoy your boxwoods and dogwoods can help make the greenhouse getaway you’ve always dreamed of without having to dig too deep. And a big benefit of the jute alternatives outside is that their synthetic materials and outside-focused designs mean they’ll dry out quickly after rain storms and be ready on the fly for whenever you need them. For example, this space can function as a place for noisy children and pets to suddenly congregate to play outside while you cook dinner or make lunch, or it can be a secluded outdoor office space for when you need some sun, but have a deadline in a couple of days.
Rugs like this Natural Dorinda Hazy Solid Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug cover your deck and allow you to enjoy the outdoors while providing all the soft comforts of inside.
Keep Your Indoor-Outdoor Rug in Good Condition
While outdoor rugs look gorgeous in any setting and have a reputation for withstanding all kinds of weather, it’s important to remember to care for them so that they last longer. Make sure to let indoor-outdoor rugs dry when they get wet, and use shampoo and warm water to remove stains. A solution of vinegar and baking soda can help remove mold and mildew spots over time.
If you must put a jute rug outside, make sure it is in a sheltered area and bring it in when it rains. These rugs can fall apart if left outside for too
