Upgrade your outdoor space with a chic rug...

Hollie Brotherton

If there’s one thing lockdown taught us, it’s the importance of making the most of our space. During the warmer months, we can bring the indoors out and extend our homes with a whole new living area.

Whether you have a spacious garden, a small patio or a balcony, an outdoor rug is a perfect addition to introduce some style. With sparkly lighting, cosy fire pits and lots of other luxe garden furniture and accessories available, there are so many options when it comes to creating your own outdoor haven. Ideal for relaxing with a book, or eating and drinking alfresco.

Types of outdoor rugs & materials

The best outdoor rugs look stylish while also being durable and long-wearing. It’s going to rain sometimes, after all. They’re often made from popular household material polypropylene because it’s weatherproof, 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 small gatherings of six people now permitted in private gardens in the UK, now’s the time to invest in your outdoor living area. Here are 22 of the best outdoor rugs available to order online now.
