Accent Your Patio with Outdoor Rugs

Impart style to your patio with outdoor rugs. At Pottery Barn, you'll find a wide range of outdoor area rugs and indoor-outdoor rugs that combine great looks with rugged durability. These rugs are crafted with weather-resistant materials, so you can rely on them to last a long time.

The Basics of Outdoor Rugs

Outdoor area rugs are a great way to give your patio or yard a fresh new look. They can also be used on your porch if desired. Here are some things you should know about these rugs:

  • Indoor-outdoor rugs are good for the patio, but they're also excellent for placing by the back door, in the laundry room or anywhere you need a rug that stands up to heavy traffic and resists wear and tear.
  • There are rugs at Pottery Barn made from natural materials and those made from synthetic materials. One option to consider is Capel® outdoor rugs, which are crafted from Olefin and have acrylic trim. Olefin is a synthetic fabric that's extremely colorfast and resistant to water and UV rays, making it a great choice for outdoor use.
  • Indoor-outdoor rugs come in many different colors and patterns. If you want something that mimics the natural tones of the outdoors, opt for a neutral sand or medium brown color. To add vibrancy to your space, consider a rug in an eye-catching print or one featuring bright colors like red or orange.
  • It's always a good idea to use a rug pad with any rug, whether it's indoors or outdoors. These pads help keep the rug in place and prevent it from slipping and sliding.
  • These rugs are easy to care for. Most outdoor area rugs can be sprayed with a hose then left in the sun to dry. You can also vacuum these rugs to remove embedded dirt and dust or shake them out. Avoid using harsh chemicals on your rug.

Items to Coordinate with Outdoor Area Rugs

Creating a well-coordinated patio is easy with indoor-outdoor rugs and a few other pieces. A grouping of chairs with cushions that complement the rug is one way to pull the look together. Or, you could place your rug underneath your patio table for a stylish dining space. A shade umbrella in a color or print that matches the rug can also help enhance the look of your patio area.
