Accessory Spotlight: Outdoor Rugs

Give your patio, deck, or porch a whole new look in a snap by adding an outdoor rug.


Don’t worry about over committing to vibrant colors or bold patterns with your patio furniture. Go neutral on your main pieces and cycle through a few different rugs during the year for visual interest. Outdoor rugs come in nearly every color under the sun and a variety of chic, fashion-forward patterns as well.

Just like indoor area rugs, outdoor rugs are both functional and stylish. They serve multiple purposes – from protecting your deck material to adding warmth for bare feet over a hard surface. They can also help define separate spaces within a larger outdoor area and bring together a seating group. Unlike indoor rugs, outdoor rugs specifically made using long-lasting materials developed to be weather resistant, stain resistant, and fade resistant.

This rug is part of Kaleen’s Home & Porch Collection. It is 100% UV treated, water protected polypropylene, and finished with “K-stop” non-skid backing.

Choosing an Outdoor Rug

  • Pay attention to architecture, such as pillars, fireplaces, or fountains and overall shape of your outdoor area.
  • Choose a material based on placement, sun exposure and intended usage.
  • Look at your landscaping and home color for inspiration to create a harmonious color palette.
  • Outdoor rugs should be at least 2 feet wider on all sides than any table placed on them.
  • Look for outdoor rugs that have been UV treated or made with UV treated fibers.
  • Outdoor rugs should be big enough so that at least the front legs of all major pieces of furniture in a grouping can be placed on the rug.
