To determine the size rug you'll need, start by measuring the size of your outdoor area. A rule of thumb to follow is the size of the rug should be 12-24 inches smaller than the perimeter of the space. If you need a rug under an outdoor dining area, make sure your rug is big enough for all of the chairs to be pulled out without falling off the rug–generally 30 inches from the edge of the table to the edge of the rug. For a seating area, the rug only needs to be big enough to place all of the front legs of the furniture on.
Outdoor area rugs come in shapes, including round, square, and rectangular. The most common choice is rectangular, and this option works for various settings. On the other hand, round rugs complement round patio tables and smaller displays perfectly. If you're working with a compact space, you may want to opt for a square rug. A rectangular rug looks great under a 6-8 person dining table, while a round rug works well with a 2-4 person setup. Long, narrow runners are best for walkways and smaller balconies.
The most popular choice for an outdoor rug is Polypropylene, a synthetic fibre. It is a synthetic fibre that is durable and can withstand rain, sunshine, and anything in between. It's waterproof and resistant to UV rays, stains, and fading. It is also a low-maintenance option that's easy to clean. A natural and eco-friendly choice is Jute. It has a luxurious look and gives a space a warm and cozy feel. However, it's not a water-resistant fibre and is best suited for covered areas, or you can opt to bring them inside during rainfall or winter.
Colour plays a significant role in your design style. If your furniture is a solid colour, consider selecting a patterned rug that incorporates that colour. You can match your rug to your cushions, throw pillows, drapes, exterior paint, or even other accents you have nearby. If your furniture is patterned, a solid-coloured rug will complement it well. When selecting a light or solid-coloured rug, keep in mind that stains are easier to see. If you're worried about stains, consider going with a patterned, tonal, or dithered rug.
