There are a lot of blogs and tips about designing your own outdoor living space. If you have ever looked into one or two blogs, you know that this is the most exciting decorating process with endless possibilities and options. But often, people tend to get lost in the process and feel overwhelmed by not knowing where to begin. Well, a great start can be an outdoor rug.

The beauty behind this is that it does not matter if you have a small patio or a vast terrasse to decorate; the outdoor rug is a perfect choice. You can choose the color, shape, style of an outdoor rug and then build around that rug.

You can always find an opposing side of the comments that outdoor rugs are not necessary. But we say that is nonsense! Outdoor rugs are economical, durable, really easy to clean, and most importantly, comes in a wide variety of colors. Colorful outdoor rugs set the tone you want to create in the given space and set the feel of that space. There are a few criteria that you need to look for before purchasing a colorful outdoor rug.

The first thing that you have to look for in an outdoor rug - the color and material. Of course, this is a personal choice and depends on everyone's taste. There are two most popular material groups that colorful outdoor rugs are made:

  • Natural fiber outdoor rugs - in this category, you can put two materials, jute and sisal. Even though those materials are natural and most likely you will find them in a more natural tone; you can still find some of the natural fiber outdoor rugs in a wide variety of different colors. Usually, this happens if manufacturers mix the materials. If you happen to purchase a natural fiber outdoor rug, be aware that they are not that durable in humid climates.
  • Synthetic fiber outdoor rugs - are a perfect fit for a colorful outdoor rug. Polypropylene and polyester are both excellent choices for synthetic colorful outdoor rugs. Polypropylene is resistant to UV rays, meaning the color will not fade under the hot sun. Another benefit of this rug is that the material itself is stain-resistant and relatively low maintenance. Polyester is the most durable one that can handle any weather. This material is easy to clean, lightweight.

Of course, not only the material is the most significant factor in choosing anoutdoor rug. Color is important too. Even though you can find single-colored rugs on the market, there are more to choose from, for example, a mix of colors to make your patio pop. Another thing about colorful outdoor rugs is that you can find lovely bright-colored outdoor rugs.

Sice colors and emotions are closely linked; bright colors can create different feelings than muted colors. Colors can make us feel happy or sad, and they can make us feel hungry or relaxed. So, naturally, solid or bright colors can have a powerful effect on emotions. For example, if you choose a bright-colored rug in bright yellow or bright red colors, it can give you an energizing feel and make you more alert.

These outdoor rugs, bright-colored rugs, will grab your attention and stand out in the surroundings. But most importantly, you can match with more muted toned furniture and other decorations so that it will give you a wholesome look in your terrasse or patio.
