The summer months are the perfect time for backyard barbecues, roasting marshmallows, and lounging by the poolside. A fun way to perk up your outdoor living space is to add a stylish outdoor rug. Rugs help define a space and pull an area together. They also add texture and provide color and comfort.
Some tips for choosing an outdoor rug are:
1. Select the Right Material
Rugs made from synthetic fibers such as olefin, polyester, and nylon are easy to maintain and affordable. They are mold and fade resistant and can easily be cleaned by rinsing them down with a garden hose and allowing them to dry in the sun.
2. Choose the Right Size
The rug should be large enough so that at least the front legs of the furniture can sit on it.
3. Coordinate Colors and Patterns
When choosing a color and pattern try to coordinate with the materials, texture and color of your patio furniture. With such a variety of styles available such as bold, bright, floral, geometrical, tranquil, sophisticated, etc. it should be easy and fun to select a rug that reflects your personal and unique style.
