Outdoor rugs are the perfect way to add some style to your space, and there are plenty of options to choose from. "Shopping for outdoor rugs doesn't have to be overwhelming," Gary McCoy, Lowe's store manager serving the Charlotte, North Carolina market, tells Hunker. "Today, there are so many rugs for sale in a range of sizes, materials, colors, and shapes. Just remember: the most important thing to consider is how exposed your space is to weather and sunlight as well as the size of your space."

You're also going to want to make sure you look out for the right kind of material. "Outdoor rugs come from a variety of materials, including polypropylene and polyester, which are more durable to withstand outdoor elements such as mold and mildew and are water-resistant," McCoy says.
