Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between an indoor and outdoor rug?

Wool, jute, sisal, and other natural materials are frequently used to make indoor rugs. They are used to decorate and protect high-traffic areas around the home, such as the dining area, living room, kitchen, or bathroom. 

Custom outdoor area rugs, on the other hand, are designed specifically for outdoor spaces, such as patios. As opposed to standard interior fabrics, outdoor rugs are frequently composed of more resilient materials like olefin and polypropylene, which can withstand exposure to moisture and sunshine.

Can my custom outdoor rug be used indoors?

Yes! Although patio rugs are designed for an outdoor space, they are resilient enough to meet the needs of indoor use. This makes them a versatile and easy-to-clean addition to your home.

Why do I need custom size outdoor rugs?

Rugs add a kind of visual appeal and homeliness that no other design element can offer. They can add a pop of color and hide unsightly flooring. However, taking your indoor area rug outside will soon prove to be a futile exercise, as it will fade and start to show signs of wear with exposure to the elements. 

Fortunately, outdoor camper rugs are specially designed to fare well in extreme heat and when exposed to moisture. They can be used to protect underlying surfaces in areas that receive high foot traffic. 

If you have kids, custom outdoor rugs for patios can provide a non-slip surface that ensures the safety of the whole family and can be used as alternatives to indoor rugs in places where excess moisture can be found, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms.

What do I need to consider when choosing an outdoor rug?

Although a custom size outdoor rug offers lots of functionality, it's important to choose wisely to prevent it from sticking out like a sore thumb. Here are a few things to take into consideration: 

  • Your vision: Start by asking yourself what kind of environment you want to create. Do you want it to be minimalist or rustic? Should it be simplistic or artistic? 
  • Color: Next, look at the colors of your patio chairs and tables and other surrounding elements. Is there a wall nearby? If so, consider its color and ensure that the outdoor rug you choose complements it. 
  • Shape: When deciding which rug to include in your outdoor space, make sure you take the shape into consideration. If your patio furniture has circular elements, for example, you should go for a round rug, creating a harmonious design. 

Intended use. In many cases, the purpose plays an important role in the kind of custom outdoor rugs you choose. If you're just looking for something to stand on or clean your feet on, then a simple design or small rug will do. However, if this rug will be an important design element, then make sure you're paying more attention to the design and size.

How do I clean an outdoor rug?

Because these rugs are typically designed to be waterproof, they are often easy to clean. You can read our in-depth advice here, but generally speaking you can simply wipe them down with a clean cloth to get rid of dirt or debris, and depending on the rug you can even use a garden hose. You may need to use a household cleaner or warm soapy water to remove pent-up grime. If you cannot seem to get your rug clean, you can talk to us about our cleaning service to give your rug the TLC it deserves.

Can an outdoor rug be left out in the rain?

Absolutely. Outdoor rugs are designed to be waterproof and resistant to mold and mildew growth, so you can leave them outside, regardless of the weather, with the full assurance that they will not be damaged.
