Indoor-Outdoor Area Rugs

An indoor-outdoor area rug is a versatile floor covering used in various settings. Made from durable materials, indoor-outdoor area rugs are designed to withstand the elements and resist staining and fading. They are also easy to maintain, requiring only occasional vacuuming or spot cleaning.

Whether you're looking for a rug for your patio, porch, or outdoor living area, an indoor-outdoor area rug from Rug Goddess is a great choice.

Benefits of Indoor-Outdoor Area Rugs

Indoor-outdoor area rugs are popular with homeowners because they offer a popular low-maintenance alternative to traditional rugs. Some of the benefits you can expect from indoor-outdoor rugs include:

Durability

Unlike traditional rugs, indoor-outdoor rugs are designed to withstand the elements. They are made from materials resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew. Their durability makes them an excellent choice for high-traffic areas like living rooms, walkways, and homes with children or pets.

Versatility

These rugs can be used for various purposes, from providing a durable and low-maintenance floor covering in your kitchen or dining room to cushioning an outdoor walkway.

You can use outdoor rugs in large outdoor entertaining areas or screened porches to designate spaces like a dining area. Or, connect your indoor living area with the outdoor with coordinated area rugs to create a cohesive look.

Ease of Maintenance

Another benefit is that they are easy to clean and maintain. Unlike traditional rugs, which typically have a higher pile and can be challenging to clean, area rugs can be simply vacuumed or spot cleaned as needed. They can be swept, vacuumed, or even hosed off, so they are an ideal choice for busy families or anyone who wants a low-maintenance option.

Comfort and Style

These rugs are an easy way to add comfort and style to your space. Indoor-outdoor area rugs come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures, so you can easily find one that matches your décor. They can even be made to look almost identical to traditional rugs, so you can get all the benefits while maintaining a classic and stylish appearance.

Indoor-Outdoor Area Rug Materials

Indoor-outdoor area rugs can be made from various materials, but most indoor-outdoor rugs are synthetic to increase their durability. Since indoor-outdoor rugs are often placed in highly-trafficked, high-wear areas, their durability is a prime consideration. The most common materials used to manufacture indoor-outdoor rugs include:

Polypropylene

Polypropylene (also known as Olefin) is the most popular material choice for these rugs due to its durability, ease of maintenance, and affordability. These rugs are typically the longest-lasting variety of indoor-outdoor rugs and can also be fashioned to look like traditional ones.

The Kas Lucia 2770 Black/White Folia Rug is a high-quality and versatile indoor-outdoor rug made from UV-treated polypropylene to make it durable enough to withstand the demands of outdoor spaces.

Polyester

Indoor-outdoor rugs made from polyester are another popular choice. They are more stain-resistant and fade-resistant than other materials, making them a good choice for areas that may be subjected to high amounts of rain, spillage, or direct sunlight, such as a pool deck or laundry room.

Nylon

Nylon is also sometimes used in the manufacturing of indoor-outdoor rugs. Nylon is commonly used in a blend with other synthetic materials, like polyester, to further improve the rug’s durability. Traditional rug materials (such as wool or cotton) are sometimes combined with nylon to facilitate outdoor use and resist the elements.

How to Choose the Right Indoor-Outdoor Area Rug

There are several factors to consider when shopping for an indoor-outdoor area rug.

Spatial Dimensions

One of the most important considerations is the overall size of the space the rug will be placed in. If you plan to use your indoor-outdoor rug inside, you should evaluate the size of the room you will put it in. It’s also essential to choose a rug that is proportionate to the furniture while still being large enough to accommodate foot traffic.

Choose a rug that is 6” to 8” wider than the largest piece of furniture in the room on both sides, whether that is your sofa or dining setting. For an indoor-outdoor runner to a walkway, choose a rug size 4” to 5” narrower than the width of the hallways on either side.

Rug Goddess offers indoor-outdoor rugs in a huge range of sizes and configurations to fit your unique needs, like our Momenti Tangier TAN-7, which comes in numerous sizes, including a 2’3”x8’ runner, ideal for walkways.

Location

If you plan to use the rug outside, you should consider where it will be placed. For example, if you plan to place the rug in a non-covered outdoor area leading to your pool, water resistance and durability will be your main concerns.

The Couristan Covington 2993/2003 Blue Leaf Area Rug is crafted from 100% fiber-enhanced polypropylene, ensuring it is water resistant yet ultra-soft on your feet. It is also treated to prevent mold and bacterial growth, making it a suitable choice for a deck, pool area, or other uncovered outdoor entertaining space.

Decor Style

The style of the space will also help you choose the right rug for you. A popular approach to selecting a rug pattern is to use the rug to contrast the room's overall appearance.

For example, our Kaleen Lauderdale LDD01-30 Rust Area Rug provides an excellent base for already-busy decor, while our Momeni Baja BAJ-01 Multi-Color Area Rug provides a splash of color to a simple or neutral room design.

Caring for Indoor-Outdoor Area Rugs

An indoor-outdoor rug is a perfect solution for adding a touch of style to your patio, deck, or home while also being durable enough to withstand the elements. While maintenance is simple, it is different from caring for a traditional rug. Here are some tips for keeping your indoor-outdoor rug looking its best:

Vacuum

Vacuum your indoor-outdoor area rug regularly to remove dirt and debris. This helps maintain your rug’s visual appearance while lengthening its lifespan. You should also vacuum under your area rug; outdoor rugs typically have a slightly more open weave than traditional rugs, allowing dust and debris to fall through to the floor.

Blot Spills Immediately

If spills occur, blot them up immediately with a clean, dry cloth. Indoor-outdoor rugs are typically water resistant so that they won’t deteriorate with prolonged exposure to water. However, if you spill something that could discolor the rug, such as wine or coffee, quickly and thoroughly blot the spill to prevent your rug from staining.

Wash and Air Dry

When washing your rug, use a mild detergent and a gentle scrub brush, and hose it down with a garden hose. Allow the rug to air dry completely before putting it back in place to prevent mold development.

Consider Waterproof Pads

Consider purchasing waterproof pads for your indoor-outdoor area rug. These pads help extend the rug’s lifespan while protecting the surface beneath the rug. Rug pads also help fight the development of mold by helping to keep your rug dry.
