Outdoor Rugs for Your Backyard Oasis

Outdoor Rugs for Your Backyard Oasis

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.


Striped Outdoor Rugs

Do stripes ever go out of style? We certainly don’t think so. A striped rug is such a versatile pattern, it can support a huge range of styles, from nautical to Mediterranean, bistro to beachy, modern or classic.

Classic Outdoor Rugs

Craving a European bistro look? The right rug can set the tone for a moody terrace dining area — just add an oversized market umbrella, hurricane lanterns for pillar candles, and a weather-proof bluetooth speaker to cue up an escapist soundtrack. (La Vie En Rose is a summer must).

Don’t forget the doormat!

First impressions are essential. Add a welcoming touch to each exterior door of your home with a durable coir doormat. This practical addition gives family and guests a place to wipe their feet or leave their shoes, especially at high traffic entrances like back or patio doors where people are moving into and out frequently.

Traditional and timeless, our Bordered Doormat is constructed of rubber and coir fibres, this makes it a resilient option that will withstand not only the test of time but foot traffic too!
