The Best Outdoor Rugs for Your Deck or Patio

Rugs tie a room together. Most of us are used to having them inside the home, but what about your outdoor spaces? Before you balk at the idea, imagine your favorite outdoor space cozied up with a rug. Now imagine that rug to be made out of element-proof material that won’t get brittle or moldy and can be rinsed off with the garden hose when it needs a clean.

These types of rugs exist and are known as outdoor rugs. They can be an extension of your decor into the exterior spaces of your home and can add that missing element to your deck or patio. Discover 12 of the best outdoor rugs for your deck or patio in this collection below.
