Outdoor entertaining spaces are an extension of the house, and deserve to be decorated like one. Outdoor rugs, like their indoor counterparts, are designed to provide warmth, style, and protection. Adding one to a deck, brick patio, or a concrete balcony can make a hard surface inviting. Outdoor rugs withstand the elements because they resist water, mildew, mold, stains, and fading from U.V. rays.
Modern outdoor rugs are much more fashionable than previous designs - some people even use them indoors in high-traffic areas. The styles, patterns, and colors of outdoor area rugs are similar to those found in indoor rugs, making it easy to coordinate your flooring choices. Many of these rugs are made from acrylic and other man-made fibers to enhance their durability. With basic maintenance, your outdoor rug can last a very long time. Simple things like cleaning it monthly, allowing it to dry after it has gotten wet, and storing the rug when not in use can add years to your rug.
