Top Outdoor Rug Ideas

Be creative

Save on costs and get creative by making your own outdoor rugs. Buy cheap, plain rugs and spray paint your own colors and design.

Use artificial turf

AstroTurf can be used as a makeshift rug to add a green touch to your outdoor area. Dirt will not easily show up on AstroTurf.

Choose durable materials

Use strong, durable, and waterproof materials such as hemp, jute, or sisal. It's important that your rug can withstand wear and tear.

Stick with neutral colors

Neutral colors like brown are a great choice for outdoor rugs. It's easier to keep these clean as they don't show dirt.

Consider synthetic rugs

If your outdoor area is muddy or gets snowy, buy machine-made material such as recycled plastic, which will last through rain and shine.
