All About Outdoor Rugs & Carpet


What are the benefits of an outdoor synthetic rug?

Many of us are increasingly embracing our outdoor spaces as a place to gather with friends or family and creating comfortable, inviting havens on our balconies, patios, decks, sunrooms and porches. Even a small space can have big style. A synthetic outdoor rug is a wonderful way to enhance your design style, tie together a collection of outdoor furniture or create cohesiveness between indoor and outdoor living areas. Synthetic outdoor rugs stand up to the weather and are fade resistant. Additionally, these rugs are mold and mildew resistant, safe for kids and pets, and easy to maintain. 

What materials are used in Outdoor synthetic weaves?

The majority of outdoor weaves in our collection are made from polypropylene and vinyl, but we also showcase weaves with polyester, poly silk, acrylic and blends of synthetic materials. All of these materials are man-made, durable fibers that have unique characteristics and qualities.

What is anywhere woven?

Our anywhere woven collection has lots of shade variation, chunky textures and geometric designs that will cheer up any space. Many of these weaves mimic the look of our natural sisals but can stand up to the elements. We also have weaves with playful patterns and colorful options, like Madrona or Tulum. Anywhere synthetic rugs are without a backing and impenetrable to moisture, which makes them a perfect fit for the outdoors. Of course, you can bring any of these weaves indoors but we recommend the use of a rug pad for stability and comfort.

What is anywhere vinyl?

All of our anywhere vinyl weaves are hard-wearing, impervious to moisture and UV stabilized. Vinyl floor coverings are used outdoors as area rugs, on boats, inside recreational vehicles, as floor mats or rugs in laundry rooms and kitchens. Sleek and easy to clean, Seaboard or Synthesis adds a durable foundation in active spaces. Wave or Chilewich’s Heddle makes a delightful mat by a kitchen sink or an area rug for your deck. Whether you desire a splash of color or a more natural hue, browse our collection and get inspired.

What is extra wide?

All of the synthetic weaves in the extra-wide category are available in widths larger than 13' 2", perfect for wall-to-wall installation or for creating a stunning and grand outdoor or indoor rug. These weaves have different size capacities and uses, so browse the selection to find the right one for you.

Are outdoor rugs easy to maintain?

Yes, one of the main benefits of an outdoor rug is the ease of maintenance. These weaves resist staining but still require quick action to clean up spills. Some synthetic rugs can even be hosed off. In general, synthetic outdoor rugs should not be left outside for extended periods of time and regular “drying” out of the rug will extend its life. All of our weaves come with guidelines for care and maintenance that are accessible under the Care tab on each weave page. For more general care guidelines, please visit our Care Guides page.

Will a synthetic outdoor rug match style?

Finding the perfect style and fit will be a breeze with our curated collection. If you are looking for a natural aesthetic with an all season look, our natural-looking anywhere weaves add personality and warmth to sunrooms, garden patios or beach house porches. Litchfield, Cambridge or Leeds come in neutral colors and interesting patterns. Alfresco Dune and Alfresco Wave are bespoke synthetic rugs from Belgium that bring chic styling to pool decks or roof top patios. Not only will you find a style to match your unique space, we offer custom sizes so you can order the exact size you need. If you are not sure what size to order, our “What Size Rug Do I Need?” is a great resource.
