Outdoor rugs are a great way to add interest, warmth, and character to your patio, porch, or deck. And with the variety of designs, shapes, and sizes available at retail, they are an easy—and inexpensive—style solution for just about any exterior living space. As the end of summer quickly approaches, some of the best outdoor rugs are already available at reduced prices. Here’s a sampling of what we found… just in time for weekend shopping!
Geometric rugs like this Farah Diamond indoor/outdoor design from Pottery Barn are now on sale, from $35-$299 (reg. $59-$499). Handwoven with weather-resistant recycled polyester yarns, the colors, pattern and decorative fringe will liven up any drab outdoor space.
For an overall graphic design, consider the Bimini Black/Sand rug from Overstock.com. Measuring 10′ x 11′ and made from 100% fine-spun polypropylene with fringeless border, the rug is marked down 30% to $197.69 (reg. $280.99) and certain to make a statement indoors and out.
A variety of outdoor rugs are also available at Wayfair. The Moroccan-inspired Trans Ocean Floor Tile rug is just one example, now starting at $49 (reg. $79). Made from synthetic fibers, it is durable, easy-care, and UV-stabilized for fade resistance—plus it’s got a knockout pattern.
If you’re not ready to plunge into the geometric trend, solid rug patterns are not your only alternative. Stripes add interest in a classic way, especially when they are as subtly patterned as these Valencia Striped rugs from Restoration Hardware. On sale now from $45-$315 (reg. $65-$395), they are the perfect complement to a variety of outdoor schemes, from casual to traditional.
For a more broad and colorful pattern, consider the 5 Seasons Collection South Padre Rug from Outdoor Rugs Only, reduced to $29-$319 (reg. $36.25-$398.75). An all-weather rug manufactured by Couristan, it is power-loomed of 100% fiber-enhanced Courtron polypropylene and certain to add lasting color and pattern to any outdoor space.
A Solid Choice
Perhaps your outdoor scheme is busy enough, or you’re looking to create a more serene area? Then solid rugs are the way to go. This Biscayne beauty in Pecan coloring from Crate & Barrel will never go out of style. Made in Belgium of 100% polypropylene, you can pick up a 4′ x 6′ rug for just $62.95 (reg.$89.95). Additional sizes—at similar savings—are also available.
Always offering low prices and high quality, Hayneedle features a variety of indoor/outdoor rugs, including the Colonial Mills Janelle Lamp Simply Home Braided rug, now on sale from $48.99 (reg.$58.99).
