The Best Outdoor Rugs to Consider This Summer

The Best Outdoor Rugs to Consider This Summer

The change in season is here, and summer is just around the corner. It’s an exciting time to do anything but one thing worth investing in this summer is your outdoor décor.

In Canada, during the winter, and parts of the spring, we spend a lot of time inside, but when the temperature begins to reach double digits, consistently, our time outside drastically increases. We spend a lot of time relaxing and hanging outside with friends and family (socially distanced, of course)!

The patio is like an extension of our living spaces, and these days it is wise to have it feel just as comfortable and beautiful as our indoor living spaces! One of the perfect ways to quickly upgrade the space is to add or update an area rug. Selecting a new rug can instantly give your patio that refreshing feel it needs this time of year.

Although not many people’s checklist includes reinventing the outdoor area rugs, summer rugs play a vital role in redesigning the outdoor entertaining areas and become a key element that helps to tie the outdoor with the indoor spaces of our home and pull them together. 

So, when we think about the outdoors and rugs, our minds usually jump to welcoming, small, rectangular rugs, that lay in front of the front door. However, rugs in recent years have been made much more weather resistant and are made with materials that can handle all of the elements outdoors.

Most of the collections in our online store offer several features to guarantee your satisfaction. This includes resilience, weather resistant, and most importantly, a 100% satisfaction guarantee

Here are a few of our favourites this season to help you give your outdoor area that fresh new ambiance for summer.
