Outdoor rugs are becoming increasingly popular and there are many styles and sizes available. They can add colour, texture, pattern and a layer to your outdoor space, transforming your patio, balcony or garden in to an additional room. I’ve decided to put together a list of my top 10 outdoor rugs for your garden, so hopefully you’ll find something you like.
Outdoor rugs are usually made out of a material called polypropylene which makes them able to withstand our ever changing weather and the wear and tear of outdoor use. It also makes them really easy to clean, winner!
- I’m going to start with a rug I keep looking at, it’s what looks like a striped outdoor rug from Benuta but actually has a rectangular pattern. One thing I love about stripes is that you can incorporate them in to any space and they just work, even if you have other patterns going on.
This rug is called Cleo Rose and it also comes in orange and blue. The only downside, I think, is that it doesn’t come in any other colours. I’d love to see it in an emerald green personally, you also can’t go wrong with a monochrome design either. There are lots of sizes available and my advice would be, go with the biggest size you can accommodate. If stripes aren’t your jam, have a look on the Benuta website anyway as they have a huge array of outdoor rugs.
2. My second pick is also from Benuta because they have far too many nice ones for me to just feature one! I’ve actually consolidated a few round rugs for this one because I got a bit excited at how beautiful they all are. I love a circular rug because introducing a different shape to an outdoor area not only gives it another dimension, it helps the space flow better too.
3. Next up, is a beautiful rug from La Redoute. It’s called Madotto indoor/outdoor rug in terracotta/natural. One thing I LOVE about this rug is that it’s reversible. One side is predominantly terracotta and the other mainly natural. It has a staggered check design with a simple border. La Redoute have a lot of rugs discounted at the moment so grab a bargain before it’s gone!
4. Dunelm have embraced the outdoor rug trend and actually have some really lovely ones to offer. My favourite one from Dunelm has to be this Vita Indoor/outdoor rug with a geometric design.
5. My second pick from Dunelm is the Geo circles indoor outdoor rug which is a retro style but modern design, complimenting mid century and Scandinavian decor.
6. John Lewis is somewhere I’d expected to see a bigger collection of outdoor rugs, having said that this Aztec indoor/outdoor rug really stood out for me. It comes in grey and teal and is priced really well too at £80-£150 depending on size.
7. The Rug seller have loads of lovely outdoor rugs but if you’re after something plain they have some seriously gorgeous colours. The Newquay flatweave outdoor rug comes in coral pink, pastel blue, aqua blue and wheat beige. It’s also at a really good price point.
8. Another great place for plain outdoor rugs is Kukoon rugs. They are inexpensive and from what I can see they look quite flexible, so not sure on their durability. However, for the price, they are a great way to add a splash of colour to your garden. They also do runners for pathways and narrow spaces.
9. Kukoon rugs also stock Habitat rugs which was a nice surprise. They have a number of geometrical designs but my favourite has to be this pink circular rug with a damask design. It would look incredible underneath a round garden table or as a centre point in a lounging area.
10. Last but by no means least, if you’re looking for a touch of luxury then this Cozumel rug from Rugs Direct is the perfect choice.
I hope you have discovered some new places to buy an outdoor rug and opened your mind to introducing one in to your outdoor space too.
Let me know which is your favourite!
Until next time,
