The sun is out and we’re approaching the official start to summer…and what a year it’s been! Here at Thornton Flooring, we can’t think of a better time to spruce up that outdoor space and start taking advantage of the beautifully warm weather.
Whether you have a small space or a large, open area, the first step to upgrading or creating an outdoor oasis is to define the area. An easy way to do that is with an outdoor area rug! They help establish boundaries, whether you’re planning on adding a table, a seating area, or a simple walkway.
When considering an area rug for your outdoor space, you’ll want to choose one made from durable materials designed to withstand the elements, such as nylon, polyester, and polypropylene. Some outdoor rugs are even made from bamboo! Regardless of which you choose, your outdoor rug should protect your feet from extreme temperatures when you step out onto your deck or patio. Below are 10 outdoor rugs we absolutely love for summer!
