A rug is often an overlooked element in an outdoor living space. With so many other pieces, like outdoor lighting, potted plants, and patio furniture, it’s understandable that a rug doesn’t take top priority. However, I’d argue that it’s an important piece to consider adding to your home.

Not only can an outdoor rug create a more defined area in your yard, but it will also make the space feel more lived-in, welcoming, and cozy. The perfect outdoor rug should tie all of your outdoor staples together and will offer the a finishing touch to your patio, deck, or porch.

Have I tempted you to add one to your yard yet? If so, here are 10 durable yet chic finds that will sit pretty in any outdoor area.

Marina Indoor/Outdoor Rug

This is a perfect pick if you’re looking for a little pattern and a pop of color. The Marina Rug comes in five colorways, making it easy to customize for any space. Reviewers note that it’s fool-proof to wash outside with a hose, and that it strikes just the right balance between neutral and more unique.

Perennials Cascade Rug

The broken striped pattern on this rug offers a timeless vibe with a twist. The pale blue color would look so pretty poolside and it offers a fun alternative to a neutral. I think it would make a front porch so inviting but it would also look great on a back deck or patio.

Oh, and on the occasions that it does get a little dirty, you can easily clean it with soap and lukewarm water.

If you’re shopping for an outdoor rug on a budget, this find is a no-brainer. It’s UV fade and weather resistant (so it will hold up well in the sun!) It’s under $110 and comes in a few different color options.

Resort Stripe Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Resort stripes are perfect for outdoor living and bring a breezy, relaxed, vacation-ready vibe to a space. The taupe/champagne color would really complement an outdoor landscape, but with six different colors to choose from, the design options are endless.

Perennials Corsica Rug

With this rug, there’s no need to compromise comfort for the sake of style. Performance chenille makes it soft underfoot, while still being both durable and chic. I really love incorporating shades of blue throughout our home and yard, and this color would look so pretty next to a water source (whether it’s a pool, fountain, or the lake!)

Beacon Outdoor Rug

A larger scale pattern is ideal for a patio or porch space because it offers a more “styled” feel. This playful rug is made with an easy-to-clean material that can withstand harsh weather while also resisting everyday wear and tear. Want to double its use? After the spring and summer season, bring it indoors!

Sunbrella Stripe Outdoor Rug

Classic stripes paired with light blue and white hues are a match made in heaven. I love the way these little stripes add visual interest and a bit of fun. Sunbrella rugs are made with an easy-to-clean, acrylic fiber that’s mold and soil-resistant, so you know this one will last season after season.

Woven Boucle Outdoor Rug

Woven natural fiber rugs are a design staple for interiors, so I love that this one has been adapted to work outdoors. It’s a beautiful neutral that would provide great texture to an outdoor space. Another perk is that it comes in a ton of different size options.

Catania Performance Outdoor Rug

This pick might seem a bit underwhelming at first, but hear me out. There really isn’t a smarter choice than deep neutrals for an outdoor rug since it will be exposed to dirt, water/moisture, and well, feet.

Colorful choices are certainly still doable, but if you’re looking for something that won’t show any flaws through the years, this rug is your best bet. The tight and flat weave ensures it’s both durable and soft, and the goes-with-everything design will help anchor any outdoor area.

Jeon Indoor/Outdoor Rug

This color-bound natural rug is an outdoor staple. I love the sand, spa blue, and navy borders, but you also can’t go wrong with classic black. The rug comes in a wide range of sizes and is fade resistant—an absolute must when left out during hot summers.

I also like that this one seems to be easy to vacuum since it’s made with more firm and flat materials.
