If you’re like me, you’ve taken a quick look at your outdoor space and felt overwhelmed at the amount of work it would take to get her looking as pretty as the 20 images you pinned last night.
After doing the hard work- sweeping and power washing, treat yourself to an outdoor rug – especially if you’re trying to keep your patio cozy for the winter.
Outdoor rugs have the longest life when they live on covered surfaces. If your outdoor space doesn’t have a roof over it, your money is better spent on a few extra plants. More here on getting the most out of your plant purchases. If you still want a rug, just plan on giving it some TLC throughout the season. Darker rugs are helpful for hiding the dirt and pollen.
Choosing a rug can be overwhelming. Measure your space first. Do not skip this step. The rug should meet one of these sizing recommendations.
- If it is an arrangement that centers a table, the rug should extend beyond the furniture by 1-2 feet.
- If it is a sofa or chair arrangement, all furniture on the perimeter of the area should have front legs on the rug.
