21 Beautiful Outdoor Rugs for Every Style
Make your outdoor space an inviting place to lounge by adding a pretty and practical rug.
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 21 stylish outdoor rug options for various design aesthetics so you can find a stunning, weather-proof floor covering to bring coziness to your backyard.
Color-forward prints define boho style making it a great match for an outdoor space. The bright, playful patterns in these rugs will infuse your outdoor lounge area with laid-back style and uplifting vibes. What better place to experiment with color than outdoors?
From nautical stripes to tropical palms, this design aesthetic is very popular in outdoor spaces, and for good reason. Who doesn't want to bring home those relaxed, island-time feels? A natural, neutral rug provides a solid base for incorporating color via cushions, furniture and plants while simple stripes lend classic appeal that plays nicely with other styles, too.
Bring a fresh, modern look to your deck, porch or patio with bold geometric patterns in timeless black-and-white or muted earthy hues. We're particularly smitten with this graphic plus sign-printed rug from Ruggable not only because it instantly brings a contemporary feel to any outdoor space, but also because it's machine-washable and UV- and water-resistant. (Plus, it would look equally as stunning in a trendy kids' playroom.) HGTV Assistant Editor Molly Miller tested this exact rug on her own deck and confirmed its beauty and durability saying, "The quality and style of Ruggable's new outdoor rugs really impressed me. I love how easy it is to clean and that it looks really good, too."
