Nothing says summer like relaxing on the patio in a lounge chair with a cup of iced tea. And whether your patio, porch, or deck is decorated with wicker furniture, a wooden picnic table, or just a hammock, an outdoor rug is a great way to pull it all together.
But, there are so many options on the market, how can you tell which will be worthy of your backyard? That’s why we’ve tested a range of designs, assessing everything from comfort and durability to grip and ease of cleaning. As a result, we can say with confidence that these are the best outdoor rugs.
The best outdoor rug for you will depend on what exactly you’re looking for, but we chose the Ruggable Outdoor Gingham Plaid Rug (opens in new tab) as the “best overall” and “easiest to clean” because it’s stain, water, and fade-resistant and can be laundered in a standard washing machine and dryer.
