Outdoor Rugs bring warmth and style to our home interiors but did you know you can use them for your exteriors too? Outdoor rugs are the ideal way to create comfortable areas on spaces such as your decks, patios, or verandah's.
Outdoor rugs work to cover the hard wood or tiled floors of your outdoor spaces, allowing you to sit or lie down in comfort. They also offer a smart way to cover up areas such as marble floors, and provide comfortable areas to walk over. Alternatively, you may simply want to use rugs as decoration to bring a splash of colour to your patio.
Technically, any rug can be used in an outdoor setting. However as these items could be at the mercy of the elements, outdoor rugs tend to be thinner than usual. That way they’re less prone to damp and the resulting mould.
Rugs made especially for outdoor use are usually weather resistant and made from synthetics such as nylon, polyester, and polypropylene that are water and stain resistant. As these rugs spend a lot of time exposed to sunlight, they also need to be fade-resistant.
The Benefits of Outdoor Rugs
- The can help maximise your enjoyment of your outdoor space.
- They provide colour and comfort to your outdoor areas.
- They’re easy to maintain.
- They can be used to cover cracks or holes in concrete or paving.
Taking Care of Outdoor Rugs
As they’re water and stain resistant, these items require minimum maintenance. You just need to vacuum regularly and brush off stubborn stains with soap and water. In most cases, you can just rinse them with a hose, but we do recommend to let them dry in the shade but can be left to dry in the sunshine.
