If you're like us, the first thing you want to do now that the weather is warm is spend as much time outside as possible. And if your ideal scenario involves your porch, patio, or deck, chances are you're going to want to spruce it up and make it just as special as the inside of your home. That of course includes setting up the best patio furniture, like perhaps a fun hanging egg chair or an outdoor rocking chair. No matter what pieces you choose, your space isn't quite complete without one of the best outdoor rugs. It really does add the perfect finishing touch, making you feel right at home even before you step out the door.

When shopping for a rug, make sure it specifically says "outdoor" in the description. They will usually have low pile to reduce shedding, and qualities like fade resistance, water resistance, and washability. In the recent livestream event with Ree Drummond about The Pioneer Woman's outdoor collection, she pointed out a bonus feature that outdoor rugs have. "It's never a good idea to use an indoor rug outside, but you can use an outdoor rug inside," she explains. And she's so right! Any of these pick would look great in a sunroom, mudroom, or any high-traffic area.

Here, you'll find all different shapes, sizes, and patterns to suit your style and needs, no matter your budget or the size of your space. Now all you need is a cozy outdoor blanket, and you'll never want to leave your patio!

Wait, you can get a 5x7 rug that's stain-, fade-, and water-resistant for less than $20? Yes! It's also reversible and ultra lightweight. Oh, and it comes in two other patterns, too!
