What Size Outdoor Rug Do I Need?

The size and shape of your area rug can define the character of your outdoor space. Create the impression of a living or dining room in an open patio space with a large outdoor area rug sitting underneath your patio furniture. The dimensions of the rug inform the layout of the space, letting you create unique areas within your patio. Choose a rectangular or circular rug that's large enough to sit comfortably under your outdoor sofa, lounge chairs, and coffee table for a smart, cohesive feel.

For more compact outdoor spaces, a smaller area rug can serve to accent a similarly scaled furniture piece. Play with a round rug under your favorite patio bistro set to draw the eye and create a unified look with just a few simple pieces.

What Is the Best Material for Outdoor Rugs?

Climate and environmental conditions are two of the biggest factors to consider when choosing patio rugs. You want a rug material that can withstand exposure to humidity and the sun while still maintaining a comfortable texture and quality appearance. Synthetic fabrics like polypropylene offer stain and moisture-resistant qualities that are ideal for humid environments, while UV-treated mats are fade-resistant.

When shopping for the perfect outdoor door mat material, consider the type of traffic and wear of the area. Explore hand-woven coir door mats for a durable natural style. Flat-woven and natural fiber mats tend to hold up best to high volumes of foot traffic, making them ideal for doors and entryways.

Quality Outdoor Mats

Your front door is the first part of your home that guests see, so it's the perfect opportunity to showcase your favorite decor. Outdoor welcome mats let you express your style while protecting your floor surfaces from everyday wear and tear. In addition to their highly functional purpose, welcome mats can add color, personality, and seasonal touches to your doorway. For perfectly on-trend seasonal style, swap muted winter looks for colorful summer designs, for example, for style that evolves with the seasons. Find specific mat designs for many holidays throughout the year, or go with a personalized welcome mat that works year-round.

Outdoor Area Rug FAQs

Can Outdoor Rugs Get Wet?

Eventually, most outdoor rugs will be exposed to moisture of some sort. Grandin Road outdoor rugs are made to withstand these conditions. Just be sure to let the rug properly dry out after it gets wet.

How Should I Clean an Outdoor Rug?

To learn how to clean an outdoor rug, follow the instructions that accompany your specific rug. Generally, most of our outdoor rugs feature low, tight piles of polypropylene material, so they're easy to clean with mild soap and water. Let it dry thoroughly after each wash. In between washes, you can sweep or vacuum debris as needed. Refer to our guide on how to care for outdoor rugs to learn more.

Do Outdoor Rugs Ruin Wood Decks?

Outdoor rugs can protect the wood surface of your deck against scratches or imprints left behind by furniture. However, if your rug gets wet, you'll need to let both the rug and the wood surface beneath thoroughly dry to help prevent rot.

Can Jute Rugs Be Used Outdoors?

Since jute is a natural fiber, it can start to deteriorate and break down when exposed to outdoor conditions, especially humidity. Instead, you can get outdoor rugs with the look of natural fibers and the strength of a more durable material like polypropylene.

Can Outdoor Rugs Be Left in the Rain?

While exposure to some moisture is expected with any outdoor decor, we don't recommend leaving your patio rugs in direct rain. It's best to keep them under a covered patio or deck to minimize frequent soaking from rainfall.

Can You Put a Fire Pit on an Outdoor Rug?

For safety purposes, we do not recommend putting a fire pit on top of an outdoor rug. When searching for a location for your fire pit, look for a space with solid, level ground with plenty of ventilation and avoid contact with flammable materials.

Do Outdoor Rugs Get Moldy?

Most of our outdoor area rugs are made with mold-resistant polypropylene materials. Even so, anytime your rug gets wet, you should allow it to thoroughly dry to protect both the rug and the ground beneath it.

Can You Put an Outdoor Rug on Grass?

We do not recommend placing your outdoor rug on grass. Lay your rug on a dry, flat surface for the best results and increased longevity.
