An outdoor rug is crucial to making your patio or porch setup feel like a homey oasis. The key is choosing one that complements your unique design preferences. Done right, you can easily achieve a setup reminiscent of something you came across on Pinterest.
We know the latter is much easier said than done, so that’s where we come in! Whether you’re crazy for modern design or a die-hard boho enthusiast, we’ve got an outdoor rug for you. Keep scrolling for eight of our favorite picks for every aesthetic.
1. Farmhouse: Outdoor Nomada Black Rug
This outdoor rug is undeniably a major focal point of this spacious patio. It boasts an intricate geometric pattern of diamonds that evokes a subtly southwestern aesthetic. Teamed with the wood elements and white tones seen throughout, it nails the farmhouse look.
2. Modern: Outdoor Adde Black Rug
Doesn’t this setup look straight out of a home design magazine? We love how the black and white rug perfectly surrounds the seating area while delivering a major dose of chicness. Take note of the balance between light and dark notes, which gives this patio a somewhat moody vibe. The sleek lines of the boxy furniture completes the modern look.
3. Tropical: Outdoor Filifera Palm Green Rug
Greenery is the star of this tropical-inspired outdoor oasis. At the foundation of their setup is a rug featuring palm leaves, brought to life with wicker seating, greenery, and throw pillows in mismatched textures and patterns. Even though the square footage of this space is small, its design choices make a big visual impact.
4. Boho: Outdoor Arcadia Desert Sage Rug
Summed up in a word, this patio setup is serene. Despite the rather lively rug choice, this space is balanced with an abundance of woods and neutrals, giving it the ultimate bohemian vibe. We love how the greenery and planters mirror the colors seen in the rug, like pink, green, and grey.
5. Cottage: Outdoor Limoncello Yellow Rug
Who says your front porch can’t pack a punch? The choice of a bold, quirky fruit rug is not only an instant mood booster, but it so beautifully frames the star of the porch: this adorable swing. The addition of greenery and throw pillows makes it feel straight out of a storybook.
6. Coastal: Outdoor Picnic Border Blue Rug
Though it may seem obvious, a blue rug is a failsafe choice for those embracing a coastal theme. Here, this homeowner hit the nail on the head with the coastal grandmother trend that’s taking over the internet thanks to the fusion of vintage elements (see: the floral tablecloth) teamed with the classically coastal details (i.e., the blue and white-checkered dining chairs).
7. Glam: Outdoor Cleo Trellis Natural Rug
You can always rely on a trellis-patterned rug to give your space an elegant look, evidenced by this grey and white design. It goes beautifully with the black and white furniture. We think it’s genius how the designer draped curtains around the pergola posts for a glamorous look, and added a gold bar cart stocked with delicacies. Glam goals!
8. Desert: Outdoor Loma Natural Rug
Embrace laid back vibes by channeling the modern desert aesthetic, as seen in this relaxing setup. Opt for neutral tones, like the beige and white geometric rug featuring playful linework, which so lovingly complements the space’s natural textures. Finish the look with string lights and a rattan light fixture to complete the look.
