Keep Your Pool Party Safe and Comfy with Pool Rug Runners

Keeping your pool safe and comfortable is easy with a pool rug runner. Here are some tips for choosing the right one.


Hanging out in and around the pool is one of the best parts of summer. And if you own a pool, it’s important to make sure that your pool area is both stylish and functional. One of the best ways to do this is to add a pool runner rug. 

Choose a rug made from all-weather material like polypropylene to add a stress-free bit of comfort and safety to your pool area. 

Here’s everything you need to know about this functional and fashionable outdoor accessory.

Benefits of Using a Polypropylene Runner Rug Around Your Pool

Whether you have a small backyard pool or a large inground one, adding a polypropylene runner rug can enhance your poolside experience in a number of ways. Here are just a few of the ways a polypropylene pool runner rug can make your pool area safer and more comfortable:


Polypropylene rugs don't have a non-slip backing themselves, allowing the rug to dry quickly. However, adding an outdoor rug pad provides the slip resistance that is important for safety around a pool, especially if you have children or pets. It also provides an added layer of softness to walk on.

Highly durable

Polypropylene is a synthetic material that is naturally durable and long-lasting. It is resistant to outdoor elements, such as sunlight, water, and chlorine. This means that your polypropylene rug will not fade, rot, or mildew, even when it is exposed to the elements. In fact, you can leave a polypropylene rug runner out by your pool all winter long and come next summer it will look just as fresh and new as it did when you bought it. 

Easy to clean

Polypropylene rugs are easy to clean with nothing more than a hose. This is important around a pool, where spills and dirt are common. You can also use a power washer to clean your rug if it gets really dirty. And because polypropylene rugs are mold and mildew resistant, there is no need to worry about giving your rug a deep clean—just wash as needed. 

Lots of design options

Because polypropylene rugs are made from synthetic fiber, they are able to be made with a much wider variety of colors, patterns, and styles. You can find rugs with a simple, classic design or rugs with a more colorful, tropical theme. Given the wide variety of design and color options, finding the perfect polypropylene rug runner for your pool area is easy. 

How to Choose a Pool Rug Runner

If you’re ready to add a polypropylene rug runner to your pool area, there are lots of factors to consider. Here are some tips for choosing the right rug:

Measure the size of your pool area

You'll want to choose a rug that is big enough to cover the entire area where you and your guests will be sitting or lounging. You can do this by measuring the area with a tape measure, the same way you would when measuring for a hallway runner. You don't want your rug to be too small, or it will risk shifting around and won’t provide the same amount of comfort and safety. On the other hand, you also don't want it to be too big, or it risks becoming a tripping hazard.

Consider the shape of your runner rug 

All of our rugs are custom made, so you can order a runner that fits the exact length of each side of your pool. But you can also get your rug to be cut in a custom shape. This is especially useful if you want to extend the rug into a seating area off the side of your pool. No matter the configuration of your pool area, you can get a rug that will go over every bit of surface you’d like to cover. 

Go with a design that complements your pool's decor 

For a polished look around your pool, look for a design that fits in with the rest of your pool area. If you have a lot of natural wood furniture in your pool area, you might want to choose a rug with a more natural-looking texture, such as one that mimics the look of sisal fibers. If you have more colorful furniture, get a rug with a bolder color or pattern
