We believe that pretty much any space in your home can benefit from a rug. And this philosophy extends to the great outdoors, too! The right rug has the potential to transform your outdoor spaces into your own personal oasis, whether you have a sprawling deck with room for a party or a small balcony with room for two. Get inspired with our ideas on how to refresh with outdoor rugs below.
Add a hint of color.
How pretty is this blue rug, which perfectly complements the natural colors of the patio look above? While we love an earthy tone outside for that reason, any hue will do on the patio. So have fun with it! Bring in something bold to really punch it up, or tie the rug in with the rest of your outdoor textiles like @simplymicheleb and her chic blue hues.
Pretty up a small deck or patio.
Like we said earlier, even the smallest spaces can benefit from a refresh with outdoor rugs! Many of our outdoor styles are available in runners, which are the perfect size for adding to slim balconies or patios. If you’re working with a little bit larger of an area, our sizes around 5’ x 8’ and below are great for framing small sitting areas and creating that intimate, indoor-decorating feel.
Go bold and graphic.
Sometimes, a more statement look is what you’re going after. And the easiest way to accomplish that in your outdoor spaces is with a bold and graphic rug. From oversize stripes to geometric Moroccan diamonds, our collection is filled with styles that will roll out a major punch.
Or try a chic and subdued pattern.
If you’re not a bolder-is-better kind of decorator, a softer, more textural pattern for an outdoor rug will add just as much character and charm. We love the thoughtful, sophisticated look the above styles bring to their respective spaces—proof that simple and subdued can make a big impact!
Bring out the boho vibes.
In our view, boho rugs were made for the outdoors. Their free-spirited style pairs perfectly with the neutral look of outdoor furniture—and not to mention any plants and other natural elements in the area! Try out a Moroccan-inspired or medallion style to bring the beautifully bohemian look to your outdoor setup.
Frame your space, large or small.
One of the reasons we love rugs in outdoor areas so much is that they really serve to finish the space and make it feel as polished and put-together as those indoors. Think of them as the final piece that connects and frames everything together. Roll out a rug within a larger space (like the dining area above) to center furniture and create a focal point. Or try an oversize rug (as seen directly above) to fill out the space and make an XL, indoors-style living room.
