The weather took a major turn towards spring (and kind of summer!) in Kansas City and I could instantly feel myself transforming. Isn’t it funny how much weather can affect our moods and our livelihood?! I spent all winter in our basement transforming the ceiling and the guest bedroom where there is minimal windows and doors to bring any sunlight in. And now it’s time to move out into the world again and begin making our exterior just as homey as our interior…well, until it gets too hot and I can’t stand it anymore. HA!
My first project is to clean our cushions and our outdoor rug to make them shine like they’re brand new. I’ve heard great things about Spray and Forget outdoor cleaner and I’m showing just how well it works this week on Instagram stories and reels. Tune in to see if it works as well as it’s supposed to by following me on Instagram! I’d love to be friends on there!
One of my very favorite ways to instantly warm a porch, deck, or pergola area is to lay down a great outdoor rug. For minimal cost, you can bring in color, texture, and separate seating areas easily. Outdoor rugs are built to withstand all sorts of weather conditions and to hold up year after year.
I’ve rounded up my very favorite on the market that are at awesome price points and the reviews are raving about the quality and resilience these rugs have. I’m a sucker for a great pattern in a rug and these ones are swoon-worthy!!
1 // Scot Irielle Geometric Gray Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug – This is my outdoor rug on the back porch and I’ve been in love with it for years now. A beautiful pattern, great coloring, and it cleans SO WELL. A simple spray down with the hose will clear mud stains and food spills in a second. I leave this up from early spring until late fall and there’s been no color fading or damage from the strong storms that we get here in the Midwest. And even pulling this out again this year, I’ve had more comments on my Instagram asking about where I got this. It’s always a fan-favorite!
2 // Sinjuri Medallion Textured Weave Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug – This bright pop of yellow brings my so much joy! I am thinking about snagging this one for my pergola patio this season because this is one HAPPY rug! Right now, it’s marked down to just $68…snag as soon as possible because this one isn’t going to last!
3 // Lauryn Machine Woven Power Loomed Green Indoor/Outdoor Rug – This pattern is so, so pretty! I love the idea of this green as a great outdoor backdrop with colorful flowers, large potted plants, and pretty wood or wicker furniture sitting on top. AND this is on MAJOR SALE right now!!
4 // Linear Global Stripe Outdoor Rug Navy/Ivory – Target makes a real good outdoor rug. Not currently on sale, but watch the weekly deals that come out on Sunday and the Cartwheel app for discounts on their outdoor rugs. Currently, this 5×7′ is $60 but I’m sure it will be discounted soon!
5 // SAFAVIEH Courtyard Ercolina Indoor/ Outdoor Waterproof Patio Backyard Rug – This rug comes in a SLEW of sizes ranging from rectangular to square to circular and comes in this pretty blue and white (I’m such a sucker for blue and white outdoors) or a soft ivory and white. $20 off this really well-loved rug right now!
6 // Better Homes & Gardens Coral Diamond Outdoor Rug – Walmart just recently released all their outdoor patio pieces and this one has been on my radar ever since. I love the simplicity of the design and the brightness of the color options. The funny thing about the reviews on this rug is that many people loved the texture and softness of this OUTDOOR rug so much that they moved it INDOORS to use it under their dining tables, on the living room floors, or even in their bedrooms! I love an outdoor rug that is so quality that people even want to use it inside!
