With Memorial Day on Monday and summer right around the corner, there is no better time to update your outdoor space. Whether you are grilling, entertaining, or just relaxing you want your deck or patio to be fresh and fun. What better way do so than with a bold and vibrant rug?
But, how do you find the right rug for your outdoor space? Following these tips will ensure you choose one that suits not only your space, but you as well.
Placement: Outdoor rugs, which are made of UV, stain, and water resistant yarn, are the perfect accessories for many locations. Your patio, porch, deck, breezeway, or gazebo can instantly be brought to life with a new rug. To find the right spot for your rug you should consider a focal point and then use your rug to compliment this focal point.
Size: Before shopping, carefully measure the area in which you plan to place your rug. If you are planning to cover a large space like a deck or patio, it is recommended that you leave at least 3 inches on all sides to create a bordered effect. If you plan to use the rug to compliment furniture, you should buy one large enough to place your furniture entirely on the rug or big enough to place the front legs of the furniture on the rug.
Pattern: Nowadays, outdoor rugs typically flaunt ikat or geometric patterns as these patterns offer a contrast to the natural colors of your outdoor surroundings. These bold patterns tend to look best when peeking out from under furniture, but calmer patterns should be used if the rug is standing alone.
