Many homeowners (and renters) use rugs to add warmth, style and comfort indoors. But what about outdoors? While not all rugs can stand up to outdoor elements, polypropylene rugs can handle moisture, sun and other elements without fading or becoming moldy. If you've hesitated to bring the benefits of rugs to your outdoor space before, now is a great time to give it a try. Consider these different ways you can use a rug outside during spring and summer. 

Welcome guests into your home

Instead of putting down a standard "Welcome" mat, try inviting guests inside with a more sophisticated and stylish approach. An outdoor rug featuring a fun color or an elegant neutral tone can give your home a welcoming appearance, and it will help prevent dirt from getting tracked into the entryway.  

Tie the look together on your deck or patio

Does your deck or patio setup look unfinished? Rugs can add that final touch of style to make your outdoor space complete. Place one underneath the dining table or in the center of the seating area. If you have a deck, a rug would sit well at the top of the steps. 

Create a cozier look in the garage

If you've turned the garage into a game room or a work area, add warmth to the room with a rug. With the right accessories, garages can be both stylish and comfortable.
