Learn why I’m obsessed with using indoor-outdoor rugs all over my home…and my favorite places for snagging unique and inexpensive ones!
If you had a chance to check out my great room makeover reveal post, you might remember that one of the tasks left on the Redesign To Do list for the space is to purchase a new area rug. We’ve also got “replace flooring” as a task on this list, but that massive project has been put on hold for awhile.
It occurred to me that there’s really no reason why I can’t begin the fun process of hunting for the perfect area rug now. After all, there’s no reason I can’t just place the area rug on top of our existing
stained and tattered carpeting, right?
In fact, I’ve already done this in my home office:
You may be wondering if that area rug is an indoor-outdoor rug…and the answer would be YES! In fact, if you take a little tour of my home, you’ll see that I use indoor-outdoor rugs quite a bit around here:
indoor-outdoor rug in the foyer:
indoor-outdoor rug in the new & improved laundry room:
…and an indoor/outdoor rug in the kitchen.
It’s pretty obvious that I’m smitten with indoor-outdoor rugs. So what’s the attraction?
- They’re extremely durable (perfect for high-traffic areas)
- They’re super easy to clean, which comes in handy when you’ve got kiddos and pets
- They can handle moisture because they are actually made to withstand the outdoor elements
- Typically, they are FAR less expensive than your average indoor area rug
Since I’m such a huge fan of indoor-outdoor rugs, I’ve become quite familiar with the best places to shop for them. Today, I’m excited to share my Go-To source list with you!

World Market often has a great sale going on as well, so you can save big if you time your purchase right.

More often than not, your rug order will meet the minimum requirement for free shipping too!
Here are some options at Pier 1 that I’m currently crushing on:
