If you can’t quite put your finger on what your backyard is missing to tie the space together, it’s probably an outdoor rug. Outdoor rugs can serve a few purposes: pulling a seating area together, covering a weathered porch or tired patio stones, adding that extra touch of comfort so you can maximize beautiful spring and summer weather.
If you’re skeptical about incorporating textiles outside, check out our polypropylene rugs created specifically for outdoor use. Sometimes also called olefin, rugs made out of this non-porous, synthetic material are resistant to stains, fading, and mildew. For extra airflow and assurance against the elements (not to mention extra cushioning on bare feet), add a rubber rug pad underneath.
