Can I Really Use an Outdoor Carpet Indoors?

Good Questions

0926_gq02.jpg Q: I need a rug to cover the nasty carpet in my new apartment. Ideally, it would be something big, soft, and stylish but those are expensive. The indoor/outdoor rugs go for cheap, but are they insanely itchy?

Would I hate walking on them in my bare feet? Would I be able to sit on the floor and play video games if I had an indoor/outdoor rug in my living room?
