Material
As you begin your search for an outdoor rug, start the process by determining what type of fiber makes the most sense for your needs. Carpeting that is designed to hold up in outdoor environments can be made of synthetic or natural materials, as well as a combination of the 2. Outdoor rugs made from natural materials are often sustainable, durable, sound-absorbent, and rich in texture. Some examples of natural outdoor carpet materials include seagrass, jute, hemp, and sisal. Synthetic options, such as those made from plastic or polypropylene, come in a huge range of bright colors. Also, synthetic outdoor carpets tend to be lightweight, meaning that they can be easily moved and stored. Finally, synthetics tend to be less costly than natural fibers, are easy to clean, and dry quickly.

Shape
Once you know what type of material you would prefer, you can move on to selecting a shape for the rug. First, carefully measure the space that you want to cover. If you are adding carpet to an outdoor seating area, consider choosing a rug that is larger than the furniture arrangement to ensure that there is plenty of room for the chair and table legs to remain on the rug. Doing this will help prevent trip hazards and can make the area more comfortable. Finally, if you have a large patio with multiple sets of furniture, then think about using several separate carpets for the space, rather than a single large one.

Color
Lastly, you can choose a color and pattern for your outdoor rug. If your patio area boasts many neutral and natural colors, don't hesitate to select a brightly colored and patterned rug to add interest to the space. At the same time, a neutral colored carpet can be more versatile and ideal for many decor styles.
