Types of Outdoor Rugs
We're beginning to embrace our outdoors as much as our indoors—and that includes creating rooms and coordinating truly decorated outdoor spaces. Luckily, the evolution of fabrics, finishings, and furnishings has made it possible to infuse our outdoor living, dining, and cooking spaces with as much color and style as our indoor ones. One product that has made big strides is outdoor rugs. Here's an overview to help you "ground" your outdoor rooms.

Although the types—doormat, area, oversize—have remained the same, the options have increased for product features. No longer are homeowners looking for practical ways to clean dirty shoes limited to black rubberized doormats. Newer ones made of abrasive but pretty and textural coir may be a solution. Color and pattern have also taken turns for the better, as have weave and nonslip backing. This overview will help you know what to look for when you make your shopping decisions.
Outdoor rugs were once mostly heavy-duty, manufactured items such as rubber and plastic. Newer protective technologies have made it possible for other materials—cotton blends and sisal, for example—to be used as outdoor rugs.
Love bold, tropical stripes in an indoor room? You can probably find an area rug for outside, too. Want a pattern that includes nature-inspired images? There's likely a doormat that will work. These days, there are plenty of options for color and pattern for outdoor rugs.
The weave of an outdoor rug will affect how it looks as well as how it feels. Open-weave type outdoor rugs may allow dirt and debris to pass through more easily.
Regardless of the style and color of an outdoor rug, a nonslip backing will ensure the rug does not easily move. Some rugs may have integrated elements that help with this; others may need some sort of backing.
Pick the right type and the right product features, and your outdoor rug selections can last you for years—not only weathering rain, sun, and wind, but withstanding daily traffic from quiet evening dinners on the patio to graduations and parties on the porch. But specific purchase considerations will make an impact on both your enjoyment and your product's life span. Those include cleaning and storage. Here's help as you review outdoor rugs.
Even with advances in technology and fabric, outdoor rugs will get dirty—and will need to be cleaned. Make sure to thoroughly understand your rug's requirements; some may need little care beyond a hose and scrub brush, while others have more stringent cleaning demands.
For cooler-weather climates in particular, outdoor rugs may need to be stored indoors once mild seasons have passed. Make sure you have adequate space that's cool and dry.
