You know how it goes: You're shopping for a new rug for your patio or deck and, after hours of painstaking scrolling, fall in love with a plush pile that would be ruined by the elements. Rainwater would stain it. UV rays would fade it. You've finally found The One, only to have it pulled right out from under you.

Enter indoor/outdoor rugs, which are conveniently crafted from mold-, mildew- and UV-resistant material so you never have to choose between style and durability ever again. Pay close attention to materials when looking for an outdoor rug. While we typically favor natural materials for indoor use, synthetic materials like nylon and polypropylene are better suited for the outdoors since they'll be mildew- and fade-resistant.

Also, consider placement. If you need a rug for your uncovered deck or patio, a polypropylene rug that can be hosed off for easy cleaning, is treated to withstand UV rays and is low-profile so it won't get soggy from rain will be the most durable option. If, however, you want a rug for your covered porch or balcony, you can opt for something a little less precious and higher pile, like jute.

Below, we rounded up 49 stylish outdoor rug options for problem-solving such as weather-, stain- and fade-resistant rugs as well as various color categories so you can find a stunning, weather-proof floor covering to bring coziness to your backyard.
