Raise your hand if you're ready for the season of all-things-outdoors to begin!
I definitely am - especially since we had a couple of teaser days last week when it hit the 80s!
I'm currently designing a few outdoor spaces for clients who want to get their spaces prepped and ready for when that glorious warm weather arrives. Porches and patios are so fun to work on - I like to think of them as extensions of indoor spaces, and I love how you can often be a little more adventurous and playful with their look.
One thing I've noted as I've been designing these spaces is the amazing selection of indoor/outdoor rugs available this season. It wasn't that long ago that the selection was limited to a lot of really boring, plain, or sad-looking designs, but I'm so glad that some rug designers got the memo and decided that an outdoor rug should be pretty too! A rug goes a long way in making these spaces feel more like true outdoor rooms. Think about how much cozier and polished a rug makes an indoor room feel - why wouldn't you carry that thought process over to the great outdoors?
So today, I've rounded up 18 of my favorite indoor/outdoor rugs to share with you. I've got a bunch more bookmarked, but I figured 18 was probably a good start and wouldn't feel too overwhelming! :) If you're in the market for a rug for your porch or patio, hopefully you'll find one here you like or that these will at least point you in the right direction.
Before I share my roundup, I do want to make a note about the lingo used with these rugs. Like their name suggests, "indoor/outdoor" rugs can be used both inside and out. They're highly durable and great for withstanding the elements outdoors (although you may want to bring them inside for the winter to keep them in good shape), which means they're great for high traffic areas inside too. If you have kids or pets, or heck, if you're the messy one(!), you may want to consider using one of these. They're also easy to clean - some can even be sprayed down with a hose!
Finally, they tend to be less expensive than other rugs, so they're awesome for your wallet as well.
Have I convinced you to go out and pick up an indoor/outdoor rug yet? :)
