There's nothing like a rug to really tie a room together—and that's equally as true for outdoor spaces as it is for indoor ones. No matter the size of your space, an outdoor rug is just the thing to take your patio or balcony from "this looks okay I guess" to "this is a place I'd really like to be". And outdoor rugs, which are designed to be more durable and water-resistant than traditional ones, can also be a great choice for highly trafficked or spill-prone areas, like kitchen, dining rooms or hallways. I've rounded up some of the best ones, in a variety of prices to suit any budget.
In the interest of comparing prices, I've listed the price for each rug in a 5' x 8' size, or the closest size to that one available. Click through to the product page for each to see other available sizes.
There's something so pretty and whimsical about this pattern of tiny stars. The small size (and small price) make it perfect for a smaller space.
The round shape and unusual pattern make this one distinct. I can see this working well indoors as well, or even hanging behind a bed as an unconventional, Bohemian-chic headboard.
All of the style of a vintage kilim in an easy-care polyester.
