Indoor Outdoor Rugs

Beautify Your Porch

Indoor outdoor rugs are more popular than ever for front porches and more.



Mary and I especially like how a simple rug can warm any porch. Because of both their non-static and slip resistant features, both outdoor patio rugs and indoor outdoor area rugs wear extremely well and are ideal for high traffic areas.


That makes them very versatile for porches, entrances, kitchens, patios, and even decks.

Because they are stain resistant and also quick drying, you can move them from your front porch in summer to your foyer in winter.

Ready to buy? A classy, colorful outdoor area rug will make your porch look and feel as comfortable as being inside.


Size, shape, location, color, and material are all primary considerations when selecting the right indoor outdoor rugs.

Suggestions for Selecting the Right Rugs

  • Mix traditional and contemporary styles together to create your perfect outdoor room. You can easily choose between contemporary outdoor rugs, traditional patterns, and sizes such as oval, rectangular, and even square outdoor rugs.
  • Measure accurately when deciding upon the size and shape of your indoor outdoor rug. Before doing so, consider your traffic pattern and exact location of your outdoor furniture. Decide how close you want your rugs to the edge of furniture.

    Also consider where you might want to place the rug indoors if that is one of your options. With those measurements in hand, find the closest rug size that will fit your requirements.



  • There are as many style options for indoor outdoor rugs as there is for indoor rugs and one or more will surely fit your needs.


      • Indoor Outdoor Braided Rugs: Braided rugs tend to have a more classic and comfortable appeal. From the traditional oval braided rugs most of us are quite familiar to more contemporary and very popular classic braided rugs.

        Traditional Outdoor and Indoor Rugs: Best known for their timeless and elegant appeal. You'll see European, Oriental, and Persian styles along with traditional colors.

        Transitional Outdoor and Indoor Rugs:Transitional styles fall somewhere between traditional and contemporary outdoor rugs. Patterns are usually of a floral or botanical nature.

        Contemporary Rugs: These rugs range from grand geometric designs to asymmetrical patterns.

  • Ensure you look for rugs designed and made for the outdoors. Most are made from water-resistant, UV-protected, and mold-resistant materials.


      • Nylon is perhaps the most common of synthetic fibers. Approximately 90% of all carpets are constructed of some type of nylon. It is very strong, wears well, and is also stain-resistant.

        Polypropylene (olefin)is very durable and is the best bargain material for outdoor rugs. These are also water, stain, and mildew resistant.

        Polyester is another fine fabric but it tends to fade in sunlight and is not as strong as other materials.

        Acrylic is a good alternative, resembles wool in appearance, and is resilient to water, stains, and mildew.

        Recycled materials are also becoming popular.


  • Be careful about sizes. Rug manufacturing isn't an exact science so rug sizes are approximately to the nearest whole size. Allow anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of a rug's stated size and the actual size.
  • Rug maintenance is important. Caring for your rug will make it last longer. Many rugs are machine-washable. Many can be spot cleaned or actually sprayed by a hose.
  • Lastly, color is important. Choose colors to complement your overall decorating scheme. In most cases, you should decorate around the colors you've chosen in your rug!
