What makes a great garden rug?
The best garden rugs can withstand wet weather and lots of footfall. Choose durable materials that are easy to keep clean to get the most life out of your new outdoor furnishing. Garden rugs mean no slippery surfaces and a softer area for kids and pets to play. They’re also a great way to protect your decking or patio. Not to mention, they’re much cheaper to replace when you want a new look.
Using soft furnishings to create garden zones
If you’re planning the layout of a spacious garden, using outdoor rugs can help create distinct zones for different uses. Lay a natural jute rug under your garden dining table for intimate meals on sunny days. Or spread a colourful outside rug underneath a coffee table for a perfect space to lounge and unwind.
Choose a rug to suit your space
Looking for a garden rug that matches your personal taste? Pick a colourful style to brighten up a shady corner. Or let your flowers do the talking, keeping your rug choice simple to compliment bright shades. If you have an open living area that extends into the garden, choose an outdoor rug that reflects your décor. That way, you create a unified space the whole family can enjoy.
The best materials for an outdoor rug
Natural fabrics are perfect for garden rugs. Look out for bamboo, jute, hemp, and seagrass, natural fibres that can withstand cold and wet conditions. Bringing your garden rug inside during the winter months is an excellent way to extend its life. But picking a sturdy, easy-to-care-for material means spring showers and chilly autumn spells won’t do much damage.
