Best Outdoor Rugs: 15 Picks for 2024

Warm weather is coming, which means I’ve started thinking about how to update my outdoor space, and an outdoor rug is on my shopping list.

Our patio currently has an outdoor dining table and chairs, along with two outdoor rocking chairs and a few cushions, but I never purchased an outdoor rug, and I think that adding in a little color or pattern from a rug would go a long way in making the space feel finished.

Also: Is it me or do outdoor rugs keep getting better and better? It seems like the top furniture brands and stores have jumped on the outdoor furniture bandwagon so there are more fab choices than ever before.

Below, I’ve rounded up some of the best outdoor rugs for this year.

The Best Outdoor Rugs for 2024


Beige checkered area rug

I’ve spotted a few checkered indoor/outdoor rugs so far this year, but this one fits closest to the vibe I’m going for. I like the combination of tan and beige because it’ll go well with the furniture I already have.


Tan checkered area rug

Here’s another take on the popular checkered pattern, that feels both on-trend and classic at the same time. I like the neutral tone-on-on-tone color in this version because it makes the smaller pattern feel less busy.


Tabitha area rug

I love this rug! The olive green would feel almost like a neutral in an outdoor space, but it also comes in blue and gray.


Santandria Border Area Rug rug

The periwinkle color of this rug reminds me of blue hydrangeas, and would look gorgeous on a patio surrounded by them.

Oval striped rug

This is one of my favorite outdoor rugs I’ve seen. It reminds me of those braided indoor rugs, but the contrasting colors give it a much more modern feel. It’s timeless and modern at the same time.

geometric outdoor rugs for decks

Twill beige outdoor rug

A linear, geometric design like this one feels a little bit modern, a little bit traditional.

Boat Stripe Rug

This simple Serena & Lily rug is a preppy classic. The navy and white are crisp and timeless, and it would be the perfect base for teak patio furniture or a pair of white rockers.


Dotted Taupe Rug

This neutral rug has a subtle polka dot pattern that reminds me of an antelope print. I love the taupe color, but it also comes in shades of blue, green, and gray.

Threshold striped outdoor rug

This outdoor rug is from Target’s Studio McGee collection is literally called the Beachside. The combination of sandy beige and pale sage evokes dune grass, while the stripes are subtly nautical.


Blue Border Outdoor Rug

Navy blue is a beautiful accent color for outdoor living spaces. I’d pair this rug with rattan furnishings with white cushions, and striped throw pillows in different scales.


Fanshaw Striped Rug

A simple striped rug always works for outdoors. This Wayfair version is super affordable, even in large sizes, and comes in 12 colors.


Aztec Indoor/OutdoorRug

This polypropelene rug gives vintage vibes, but thanks to modern technology, you can use this rug on a deck, patio, balcony, or whatever outdoor space you may have. I love the timeless feel of this rug, and how it borrows a distinctly indoor style.


Mila Indoor/OutdoorRug

This beautifully detailed indoor-outdoor rug is also made of recycled polyester, making it an eco-friendly pick.


Aztec Indoor/OutdoorRug

Another eco-friendly rug pick, this one was made from recycled plastic bottles (more than 1,000 are used per rug!). But, I also love the simple, modern coastal style.


Flatweave Tassled Indoor/OutdoorRug

This pretty Rejuvenation rug is handwoven using a traditional kilim technique, but made with P.E.T. (a recycled polyester material) for extra durability.
