How to
Choose Flooring

All-Weather Mats

Unfurl an all-weather mat just about anywhere to create an instant outdoor “room.” Many are designed to give you the look of natural sisal with the easy care of durable, water-repellent polypropylene. Here, we've paired a basic outdoor mat with all-weather wicker furniture for a serene outdoor seating area that complements the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Hooked Rugs

Outdoor rugs crafted with a hooked pile have all the softness of an indoor rug but are made from long-lasting, stain-resistant fibers designed to resist fading and mildew. Here, a round hooked outdoor rug defines the seating area without hiding too much of the deck's beautiful rustic wood.

Synthetic Rugs

Also available in vibrant colors and intricate patterns, outdoor mats can make the kind of design statement that was once reserved for the most stylish interiors. Here, we've echoed the deep indigo of the woven mat with an ink-blue ceramic garden stool and coordinating throw pillows and beach towels.

Whether they have the look of woven natural fibers, the style of a
vibrant area rug or the softness of hand-tufted yarns, outdoor rugs
are easy to care for and highly durable, making them perfect for
high-traffic areas, indoors or out.
