Top 5 Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

What I love about these most popular outdoor rugs I have selected here is that they are suitable for inside the house. Yes you read that right. Bring the outdoors, indoors with these indoor/outdoor rugs.

All these best selling rugs are that categorized as indoor/outdoor rugs, so they definitely have a place in a household. That place is pretty much wherever you want them to be.

Gone are the days that outdoor rugs looked like outdoor rugs, and I am not using the indoor/outdoor rugs as one or the other, I am talking about rugs that are both Indoor AND Outdoor.

The best thing about rugs is that they have come a long way in the last 10 years. These fashionable outdoor rugs are just as trendy inside the home.

Outdoor rugs, when I was a child reminded me of door mats made from hard scuffed material only suitable for scraping boots or hard shoes against. Now I’ve reminded you, now forget it, because gone are those days!

Well if you are not update to date with the rug trends, let me help you out. Outdoor rugs are the new ‘in thing’ when it comes to decorating inside your home. You can surely bring that outdoor rug, inside. It’s pretty common (and a fast growing popular home décor rug idea) to find rugs that are indoor/outdoor suitable in dining room areas, living room areas, under coffee tables, in hallways, lanais, pool decks, foyers and other high traffic areas.

Now it’s time to get started with the Top 5 Indoor/Outdoor Rugs currently available today.

TIP: If you don’t like any of these rugs, don’t worry, there is more options. Within my circle of friends, I am known as the home décor queen and although I do have the first couple of indoor/outdoor rugs in my home, I do understand that bright colors do not suit anyone (one of my friends is an all black person). Me personally, I am going with the new rug trend of layering ‘outdoor rugs’ such Exotic Rugs (eg. Seagrass and Jute Rugs) with wool rugs inside my home.

Fab Habitat Cancun rug is available in 2 different colors and 4 different sizes.

Fab Habitat sure knew what they were doing when they came up with this rug. It’s a woven rug made from upcycled plastic. If this doesn’t appeal to a full crowd of people, I don’t know what will.

You can rinse this rug off with a hose if you need to and you can rest easy knowing that this rug did something great for the environment with used plastic that otherwise would have been sitting in a landfill somewhere.

Available in turquoise and moss green, this rug gives a tropical feel to any room or area that you put it. This rug is also reversible, so feel free to change up your style at any time. Don’t be discouraged about the strength of the rug, it’s woven tightly to ensure its durability. It wouldn’t be made for outdoors if it couldn’t handle the heavy traffic indoors.

Why Are Outdoor Rugs So Popular?

We used to only refer to outdoor rugs as outdoor rugs, now they have the dual purpose of being both suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Indoor/Outdoor rugs are made for heavy duty use and can handle moisture and be resistant to stains and spills. The reason why a lot of people buy indoor/outdoor rugs is for many reasons; one is because they are notoriously easy to clean and another, because they are one of the best rugs you can buy if you have pets.

Buying and indoor/outdoor rug is also a major benefit for rooms where spills can happen or anywhere kids or pets can run amuck.

If you have kids, you know how important it is to have an easy to clean rug in the dining area. They are messy eaters and sometimes, dinner time artists. That bowl of spaghetti quickly finds itself on the floor. Sauce, red sauce especially is a very stubborn stain to get out of carpet, so a rug that can resist stains is an absolute must.

The job of a rug isn’t just to add color and personality to a room, it’s also to make life a little bit easier for you. Besides, who doesn’t want a rug that they can take the hose to? Cleaning isn’t fun… but if you have an indoor/outdoor rug that is super easy to clean, at least it doesn’t have to be such a daunting task or time consuming task cleaning it.

Unfortunately, it won’t make doing the laundry any less boring. (Sorry!)

    • Hi Lillian,
      it’s best to use something easy to clean. Rug from microfiber is a great example. Check out this variant.
      Also consider buying rug pad for it to ensure your vinyl floor is safe and it’s comfortable to stay of the rug with your feet.
