Neutral Beauty

The aesthetic of this outdoor space is minimal and sophisticated, so a bright colored rug just wouldn’t have done. This large textured tan rug nicely defines and softens the seating area and allows for pops of color to be swapped out with accessories like pillows and throws.

why an outdoor rug?

Outdoor spaces can serve many purposes. For example, a simple patio can be transformed into a chic space to entertain family and friends. A plain backyard can become a cozy hideout for roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars. An ordinary front porch becomes an oasis for relaxing with a cup of lemonade or tea. Make your outdoor space, no matter how big or small, a retreat for you and your loved ones.

Ikat Artistry

This rug is as bold as it is beautiful with a combination of modern ikat dying and classic Turkish styling. The artistic design gives this chic rug an on-trend appeal that can fit in with almost any contemporary space. And don’t worry about the black and blue palette. Exterior areas are some of the best spots to try out darker colors since they’re inherently well-lit and spacious. Here, the accent pillows, chairs, and even the planter continue the dark aesthetic, making it an integral part of the color scheme.

Transitional Welcome

Plush, shaggy accents with a strong and durable flatweave backing give this rug a stylish, chic appeal. With textural contrasts and a stark tribal pattern, this rug would work beautifully in any patio lounge zone, and it’s sure to be a conversation starter. Textured rugs like this work well for zones that feel lifeless or as though the furniture is “floating” in space. The neutral palette of grey and cream will prevent the rug from overwhelming your patio, even if you’re using colorful accents.

Garden Vibes Outdoor Rug ideas

Braided Beauty

Braided rugs are often associated with very home, country-style homes. While an outdoor braided rug can certainly fill that niche, these rugs are even more diverse than just that one category. With their various color schemes, different types of braids, sizes, and shapes, these rugs can also decorate more transitional spaces like the one shown here.

Multipurpose Spaces

Oftentimes, decks, patios, and porches host more than one area. Like this porch, you may have separate areas for an outdoor living room and an outdoor dining space. You can create distinct spaces with different color schemes and furniture, but another way to set each space apart is to add a rug. You may add a rug to just one of these spaces or both of them to define each space as separate from the other. When using multiple rugs in the same space, you have the opportunity to play with coordinating colors, similar patterns, and shapes to create distinct spaces and a cohesive overarching design.

Outdoor Carpets

Each deck is unique, so it makes sense that you may decide to order a custom outdoor carpet for your outdoor patio. Custom carpets and rugs are aptly suited to highlight a separate seating area, a dining space, or a part of the deck that has a different height from the rest of the space. When customizing your deck, you can also consider durable rug and carpet options to fit your home's needs.

Blue and White

Blue and white is a classic color scheme that works in many different styles. Those colors along with the simple striped design of this rug work well in creating a transitional, slightly contemporary deck. Timeless color schemes and designs like these can serve as the bedroom for more modern outdoor spaces.

Vibrant Personality

Your outdoor space is defined by many different decorate elements. With that, you will want to choose a rug that works well with those other accents and furniture. This whimsical outdoor space has bold greens, vibrant oranges, and bright reds throughout the entire space. While a solid red rug would have complemented that color scheme, the detailed pattern further showcases the homeowner's eclectic personality to create a highly unique space. This porch should serve as inspiration of how you can create a whimsical eclectic space that conveys bold personality.

Playing With Pattern

Playing with pattern is a great way to create boldly designed, unique balconies. When you do use multiple patterns, look for similarities in theme and appearance to create a cohesive design. In the case of this tropical balcony, both the chairs and rug feature straight lines. In fact, the furniture also features linearity in their structions. These subtle touches throughout all the decorations makes a big impact on unifying the balcony's overarching design.

It's The Little Things

Not everyone has a large, sprawling deck or balcony. Even in these cases, you can add a rug to show off your personality and create a more cozy space. As you can see by this city loft, the small outdoor rug completely changes the dynamic of the balcony and works together with the other accents to create a small but mighty outdoor space.

Setting The Scene

Whether you're decorating a porch right outside your door or a luxurious poolside, an outdoor area rug can define different spaces for unique purposes. In the case of this pool area, a rug sets a smaller seating area apart with a central rug. That defines this space as an area to converse while keeping the other chairs separate for lounging and sunbathing.

Filling The Space

If you want to create a more intimate, cozy outdoor space, consider using a larger area rug that can fill the majority of the space. This blue rug swallows up the outdoor space with its central presence and its size. You can similarly play with the rug's size and placement to create your desired tone and look.

We hope you love these outdoor rug ideas as much as we do. Outdoor rug ideas give you the power to turn your exterior areas into their own "rooms," extending your living space. Look for designs that fit your personality, and don't be afraid to break away from your interior decor style for something different outside. The important part is that you love the colors and textures displayed in your outdoor space. And if you see something that you'd rather have inside your home, go for it! You can use most outdoor rugs indoors as well.
