posted on


Do you have an indoor/outdoor rug on your patio?  If you do, you know how comfy, stylish and durable an outdoor rug can be.  Plus they are fade resistant, can be hosed off and often times, soft underfoot.  Perfect for outdoors.  But what about really using an indoor/outdoor rug indoors?  It's an affordable solution that gives you a big bang for the buck.  And, Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to buy an indoor/outdoor rug as they're on sale everywhere.  Let's check out some indoor looks, all under $200 for a 8'x10' size.

Ballard Design's Anders rug comes in 4 colors and looks terrific in a bohemian chic living room.

This Sicily indoor/outdoor rug is just so pretty.  Hard to believe it's $200 at Ballard Designs.

Love this Mcrae navy blue striped rug at Wayfair, lots of impact for $115.

An indoor/outdoor rug is perfect for high traffic areas.  A muted pattern rug, the Sun Shower All Weather Beige, is $160 at

On a screened porch, this rug mimics tile.  Oops!  This rug (Loloi, Venice Beach Collection in ivory/blue) is $500 so let's find the look for less.  How about this Moroccan navy teal rug at Home Depot for $179?

I love indoor/outdoor rugs.  For years, we've had a green Ballard Design rug on our deck but we're switching it up this year.  Once the deck is painted a dark grayish-green, I've ordered this black and white rug (Winsol, $149,  Looking forward to laying it down soon.   In our sunroom, we've had this animal print Ballard Design indoor/outdoor rug for years and it still looks brand-new.  If you choose not to try a large indoor/outdoor rug inside, try a smaller one in an entry way, kitchen, bathroom - anywhere there's high traffic.  Enjoy shopping for your new rug and here's to barefoot weather!

  • Great to hear, Becky! I can imagine a couple of outdoor poufs so you both can put your feet up after a busy day.

  • I was recently gifted an outdoor rug for our patio that I’m hoping will help to create a warmer living room like feel outside on our deck. My husband works indoors all day so rarely sits inside during warmer weather so we try to bring the indoors outside for summer. Thank you Kathleen – I think we’ll use this rug!

  • What a great idea! We are thinking of ripping out our wall to wall carpeting in our bedroom & refinishing the hardwood floor in that room. What fun to have easily replaceable indoor outdoor carpet for an accent piece.
