Picking a Farmhouse Outdoor Rug
You know that you want a farmhouse outdoor rug, but picking the perfect one can seem challenging if you love all of your options. Thankfully, asking yourself a few questions about your space can help you narrow it down, so your decision is more manageable. And we're here to help.
To get you started, we’ve highlighted some of the best questions to ask yourself before buying a farmhouse outdoor area rug. Keep reading to get figure out what you want and need:
Color and Style
What’s the color palette of my home and the area that I’m decorating? What interior style best defines this area?
Identifying the color palette in the area you’re decorating will help you figure out which colors will look best. If you’re decorating an outdoor space, consider your home’s exterior colors and the primary interior palette.
Style counts, too. You might want a modern farmhouse outdoor rug, a boho farmhouse outdoor rug, or something else, depending on your particular farmhouse style. Farmhouse rustic outdoor rugs work well to bring a hint of rustic, lived-in style into any decor setting, and they’re a classic choice if you’re not sure what will look best.
Size and Shape
How large is the area that I’m decorating? How much coverage do I want? What shape would work best?
There’s a big difference between an outdoor farmhouse rug in 5x7 vs. larger sizes like 8x10, 9x12, 10x12 and 10x13. Never guess how large you'd like your rug to be. Instead measure your space and pick a size that will keep at least 24" between the edges of your rug and the wall or edge of the patio. Outline the dimensions you choose in masking tape on the floor to make sure the rug will fit or give our room visualizer tool a try to see how the rug will look in your space.
For most spaces, a rectangular farmhouse outdoor rug is a fine shape. But you might want to consider a round or square rug if you’re decorating underneath a round or square table.
Do I want to add years to my rug’s life? Would I like to prevent my rug from sliding out of place?
If you want to get the most out of your farmhouse outdoor rug, you'll want a rug pad. Outdoor rugs call for outdoor pads, but an indoor pad should work fine if you're using the rug indoors. Pads prevent friction and surface damage while keeping your rug in place.
