Smart Ways to Use an Indoor/Outdoor Rug
Grab one of these magic carpets next time you head into the great outdoors (or your great yard).
Indoor/outdoor rugs are such a good idea, we can’t believe we didn’t think to buy a bunch sooner! They’re an easy way to add a pop of style and design to the backyard or an outdoor party without breaking the bank. Plus, they’re portable and easy to clean, making them perfect for high-traffic areas like entryways and decks. These days, there are so many pretty, modern designs out there, you might even consider replacing your delicate indoor rugs with these hardy options.
If you’re planning to use your rug outside, make sure the one you choose is made of an easy-to-clean material, like polypropylene plastic. You can vacuum or sweep away dirt, or spray it clean with a hose. For shaggier styles, make sure to vacuum the back too!
If your indoor-outdoor rug has a semi-permanent home outside, make sure to bring it in during extreme weather. When you’re using it inside, consider an accompanying rug mat to prevent slippage and floor scuffing.
If you’re planning to use your rug someplace windy, pick a style with anchor loops and buy a pack of grounding pegs so you can nail it into the dirt and nip a magic carpet ride in the bud.
