Are you looking to elevate your outdoor space? To make your outdoor area irresistible, soften the space with comfortable furniture, colorful pillows, and a snappy outdoor rug. An outdoor striped rug is the perfect accessory to blur the lines from indoors to outdoors.
Outdoor spaces serve many purposes. A simple patio can be transformed into a chic space to entertain family and friends. A plain backyard can become a cozy hideout for roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars. An ordinary front porch becomes an oasis for relaxing with a cup of iced tea or lemonade. Make your outdoor space, no matter how big or small, a retreat for you and your family and friends.
Striped rugs are a popular choice of designers for a reason. A bold rug with wide stripes in contrasting colors makes a statement. A simple narrow striped rug in neutral colors can add movement and definition to a space without being overpowering. There are many ways to make a striped indoor outdoor rug look beautiful inside your home and out. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Match the color scheme. If your outdoor space already has furnishings, accessories or even flowers in a specific color scheme, match your indoor outdoor striped rug to the existing color palette. A yellow and white striped outdoor rug adds a sunny element to a garden with yellow and white flowers abounding. If your home's interior follows a specific color scheme, you can carry that same color palette outside. In fact, in the outdoors you can turn up the volume. If your interiors are accented with muted pinks and oranges then go for a bright pink or fiery orange outdoor striped rug.
Add some contrast. If your outdoor space is filled with mostly neutral colors, adding some contrasting color can really help to enliven the space. Most outdoor furnishings are mostly grays, browns, and tans but these can be brightened by adding a fun accent color like cherry red, cobalt blue, or lime green. A cheery accent color makes the space feel more playful and inviting.
Why not go for a Mediterranean feel to make your home feel like an exotic getaway? Mediterranean colors echo those of the sky and the sea, with a little warm terracotta or lavender. Blue and white stripes give a space an airy nautical feel. Pair with elegant yet easy pillows and accessories and you're on vacation.
The classic combination of black and white goes with everything. So whether you're going for comfy casual or modern and simplistic, you can rely on a black and white striped rug to pull the look together and add contrast.
Outdoor Rug Care
Caring for your outdoor rug couldn't be easier. Indoor-outdoor rugs are made to be extra durable and to stand up to sunlight, dirt, and moisture. When your outdoor rug gets dirty, simply spray it down with the hose and hang it to dry.
Outdoor striped rugs are one of our most popular styles and it's easy to see why! They are versatile, classic and beautiful, and while they're the perfect accent for the outdoors, they're perfect for any space indoors as well. Ready to start shopping?
