An outdoor rug is a versatile accent piece that pulls together an outdoor living space as a place where everyone wants to hang out. But for such a rug to withstand years of wear and tear, it’s important to consider how it’s made.
“You’ll want an outdoor rug made from durable and weather-resistant materials such as polypropylene, nylon or polyesters,” says Liz Dzurinda, owner of Bexley House decor shop in Clayton, North Carolina. “These materials can withstand outdoor elements like sunlight, moisture, and mildew and are easy to clean.”
But why stop at just one? “We’ve all seen layered rugs in the living room, but a fun twist is taking the layers outside,” says Alissa Abrhalt of Raleigh-based Linden Creek Design. “Layer a neutral 9-by-12 area rug with a 6-by-9 playful rug to give the space more interest and add a colorful or patterned element.”
These Amazon outdoor rugs are stylish and practical to help you enjoy your outdoor space for many years to come, whether you’re looking for a bold ethnic style, a subtle neutral—or both.
Safavieh Courtyard Collection Area Rug
While at first glance you might see a neutral solid rug, this indoor/outdoor Safavieh area rug is power-loomed with a design featuring small checkmarks, which give it a great texture and depth along with good looks. Made of polypropylene, this Amazon outdoor rug is resistant to stains, weather and UV light. Plus, the short pile and tight weave resist dirt and debris and won’t shed. It comes in a boggling 32 size and shape options all with a muted canvas, so your patio furniture is the real star.
“Much nicer than I expected and I love that this rug is waterproof,” writes 5-star purchaser Jessie L. “Our children can be messy with popsicles and bubbles! Love that this can easily be hosed down and dries super fast. Materials are a nice neutral color, which is perfect in case we ever decide to upgrade our back porch furniture. So far so good. I would buy it again!” Here’s what you need to know before buying rugs online.
Green Decore Reversible Rug
You can think of this rug from Green Decore as two for the price of one, because it’s reversible! No matter which side you like best, the recycled plastic makes it very durable and lightweight. With a bold geometric pattern, this Amazon outdoor rug anchors your space without stealing the show. The rug is fade-resistant, UV-protected and easily hoses off to clean.
“This rug is beautiful,” writes Joselyne Espinal in a 5-star review. “I like the fact that it comes rolled up as opposed to folded so that way you don’t have the lines on this plastic material.”
NuLoom Gris Contemporary Rug
Make your patio furniture feel even cozier with this neutral-toned contemporary rug. The 100% polypropylene material is designed for high-traffic areas or busy families with pets. It’s easy to clean with a hose and spot-treated rug cleaner.
“It’s tough to select rugs online as they can look so different in person,” writes Deb in her 5-star review of this Amazon outdoor rug. “I was debating between two patio rugs so I asked my husband’s opinion. He chose this rug, which wasn’t my first choice. Feeling magnanimous, I ordered his choice. In hindsight, he was right. The quality was better than I anticipated. The weave pattern varies nicely. Fabric is tight and durable. Gray and black tones coordinate well with my furniture. Comfortable underfoot, too.”
Nicole Miller Sofia Fleur Patio Rug
For a classic design with a twist, you won’t be disappointed with the Nicole Miller Sofia Fleur rug. The timeless medallion and floral motif goes edgy with a distressed finish. Should this stain-resistant rug get dirty, you can wash it with a hose and leave it out to dry, or sweep or use a leaf blower to remove debris. This rug has a classic sophisticated design and is made to withstand weather, water and UV light along with a summer full of backyard gatherings.
“Looks beautiful!” says 5-star reviewer Ashley S. “Great quality for the price. Bought it to use as an outdoor rug but it’s almost too pretty to be outdoors.”

Featuring a serene patterned weave and a striped border, this rug is designed for indoor or outdoor use and is shed-free, UV-protected, water-resistant and anti-fade.

It comes in a number of sizes and more than 20 colors, so you’ll find one that works in your space.
“Great outdoor rugs! I have one on my deck and one in my hot tub screen room,” writes 5-star reviewer Gramma Ande. “They are wonderful! I love the color and how durable they are. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to enjoy outdoor carpeting.”
Fab Habitat Outdoor Rug
The Fab Habitat Rug has a reversible design gives you two beautiful rugs in one, and it comes with a carrier bag if you want to take it with you to make camping trips or adventuring in an RV feel more homey. Made from recycled plastic, this outdoor rug earns extra points for sustainability, and it repel spills and dirt and is fade- and stain-resistant. It’s easy to maintain with a quick hosing and the material is fast-drying, too.

“I am so happy that this is the one that I picked out!” says 5-star reviewer Andrea Trelstad of her hunt for the perfect Amazon outdoor rug. “It is reversible (both sides are very cute), seems to be great quality, and it cleans up very easily so this would be a good choice of rug for if you have little ones as well. It also comes with a cute bag to store it in during the winter, which is very handy!”

The color was exactly as pictured. I have purchased indoor rugs of this brand in the past and was very pleased with the quality, thus decided to order for the outdoor area. I wasn’t disappointed in the quality of either rug!”
Buffalo Plaid Outdoor Rug
Mad for plaid? Check out this Earthall Rug. Trendy and versatile, this rug has three size options and six color choices to layer underneath a traditional doormat or stand alone to anchor an outdoor space. Unlike many Amazon outdoor rugs, this one is made from cotton, which means it’s washing-machine safe with a mild detergent in cold water (assuming the size you buy will fit the drum).
“I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing these rugs are!” writes Kelly L. “The quality and feel are amazing for outside on the front porch. Does not feel like plastic like most outdoor rugs. I can see how this could be used inside or outside! You will not be disappointed in these!”
Gertmenian Classic Flatweave Rug
This flatweave rug lays a sophisticated foundation with a classic black border and chestnut base color. The ultra-strong cabled fiber and low flatweave make this rug ideal for rolling out in high-traffic or spill-prone spaces. Lastly, like most of these Amazon outdoor rugs, the weather-resistant construction is resistant to UV rays and stains.
“I usually don’t write many reviews but I am so impressed by this rug I decided to come back and write one,” says 5-star reviewer T. Crole. “I have washed this rug twice and it still looks brand new! I put it in the driveway and put a tiny drizzle of Dawn dishwashing liquid on one end and used the garden hose to spray it down and send the suds to the opposite end. It drys fast and looks fantastic!”
Nicole Miller New York Herringbone Rug
This cool chevron-style rug has an eye-catching pattern that decorates the patio beautifully and masks both dirt and minor stains between cleanings. The lightweight, easy-clean polypropylene comes in a slew of colors that let you keep it neutral in black, beige or grey or go bold with green, pink or yellow.
“It adds color and a living room feel outdoors by our pool,” writes Melinda Lee of the orange/ivory combo she purchased. “And the fact that it’s so reasonably priced means that next year I can get a new one in a whole different color and pattern! Highly recommend.”
NuLoom Asha Outdoor Rug
You can never go wrong with a neutral rug, and the Asha rug with a simple yet striking border is no exception. Its medium pile provides cushion and extra support, and it’s made of 90% polypropylene and 10% polyester that’s designed to stand up to anything, including spills and heavy foot traffic. In either the rectangular or round shapes, it will pair nicely with outdoor furniture on your deck or patio.
Lynn writes in her 5-star review: “We took out our hot tub and needed an outdoor rug to place there. It fits perfectly. The colors are bright and I’ve already received many compliments on my new round rug, so I bought two other shapes in the same pattern!”
Nicole Miller New York Danica Rug
Make your outdoor space feel cozier with this geometric rug featuring a Bohemian-inspired pattern. Machine-made of synthetic fiber, this rug is stain-resistant and easy to clean. Plus, with a low pile, it withstands heavy foot traffic and won’t get caught under doors. Find it in many color schemes from blue/grey to pink/ivory. To make it feel extra-luxe, layer it over a waterproof rug pad.
“These rugs are so gorgeous, I bought three!” writes Sara G., who gave this Amazon outdoor rug 5 stars. “The pattern made it easy to line up two rugs to cover my entire deck without spending a fortune. I may buy a fourth as a spare in case damage happens over time. No odor and it flattened at the corners within two days with furniture. They’re comfortable underfoot, dry very quickly and vacuum easily (yes, I vacuum my deck rugs to remove pollen, lol). Now I can let my toddler son play on the deck without worrying about splinters! Highly recommended.”
Jonathan Y Zinnia Floral Rug
If you want to bring your garden to your patio or three-season porch, check out this floral textured-weave rug. It’s fade-resistant with plenty of gorgeous color combinations to choose from including navy/green, brown/cream, fuschia/light gray and navy/aqua.
