With summer approaching, we're asking ourselves how we can make the most of our outdoor space. During the warmer months, we want to bring the indoors out and extend our homes with a whole new living area, ideal for relaxing with a book, or eating and drinking alfresco. One of the most simple ways to achieve this? With an outdoor rug.
With the right garden furniture and accessories, from sparkly lighting to cosy fire pits, there are so many options when it comes to creating our own outdoor havens. Whether you have a spacious garden, a small patio or a balcony, an outdoor rug is a perfect addition to introduce some style this season.
Types of outdoor rugs & materials
The best outdoor rugs look stylish while also being durable and long-wearing. It’s going to rain sometimes (or possibly a lot), even in the summer. They’re often made from popular household material polypropylene because it’s weather-proof, easy to clean and naturally stain-resistant.
You’ll also find some made from natural fibres, such as jute or hemp. As these come from plants, they'll hold up well outside. They’re also a more sustainable and eco-friendly option.
With summer finally here, now’s the time to invest in your outdoor living area. Here are 11 of the best outdoor rugs available to order online now.
