Nothing defines an outdoor space quite like a rug. While yards don’t come with designated rooms per say, the strategic placement of a rug is an effective way to create a natural border. Before pulling the trigger, check to ensure sure the rug is designed to withstand the elements. Then maintain your rug by following the cleaning instructions, whether sweeping, spot cleaning or hosing off. Depending on your climate, you may want to store it in a warm, dry place during inclement weather.

Handmade Braided Salt and Pepper Indoor/Outdoor Rug, Wayfair 

We love this woven all-weather polypropylene rug for its versatile salt and pepper texture, but it gets high marks for another reason. That pattern helps disguises crumbs and dirt, making it a breeze to maintain a clean appearance even when nature gets in the way.

Hobnail Grey Indoor/Outdoor Rug, Lavender Fields

One way to create warmth outdoors is with texture, and if you’re in short supply consider this handmade beauty. The surface is likened to luxe acid washed denim contrasted by white hobnails for a dimensional finish.

With its tweed-like appearance, this flecked ombre rug will draw eyes to its rich pattern. This reversible rug is also made of PVC, which means when it gets dirty you can simply hose off debris.
