Outdoor Rug Magic

March 31, 2016

Looking for a way to make your outdoor area more comfortable and inviting? If I had to suggest one item that can transform your front porch as well as your backyard deck, my suggestion would be an outdoor rug:

There is no other accessory that is as inexpensive and easy-to-find for the perfect way to dress up your outdoor area:

An outdoor rug brings in color and life to a space. And just like an indoor area rug, it anchors the area and becomes more inviting and welcoming.

Just be sure to use an oversized rug, (can look silly if too small a rug is used), which I wrote about here.



There is such a wide selection and variety today! And most companies offer free shipping:

If you already have an umbrella on your deck, find a rug with that color in it. Then find a few outdoor pillows to use on chairs or a bench and you will have an inviting outdoor seating area:



Like paint can transform a room, an outdoor rug can transform your deck, patio or porch by adding a splash of color and texture. Magic! I hope these photos have given you some inspiration and ideas. I can’t wait to be sitting on my pretty deck reading and relaxing!

And if you do not want to buy a rug, another option is painting the floor:

Love, love, love!!


  1. Kelly, you have inspired me to give my deck a breath of fresh air with a colorful new rug or maybe even two! Thanks for the pictures they are very helpful as well.

  2. Love it. We are doing the floor in our sunroom this spring and definitely will be adding a rug to cosy up the space.

  3. I’ve been searching for an outdoor rugs for our outdoor cement patio area for years. Maybe this year I’ll find just the right one 🙂 Thanks for all the great inspiring pics!
