With Summer now very firmly on our minds, our attention is turning to creating the perfect outdoor space to enjoy those long balmy evenings. An outdoor rug was one of the must-have patio accessories in 2021 and they are set to be as popular as ever again this year. As well as being practical, outdoor rugs are an excellent way of defining a living area in your outdoor space and are an affordable decor update that can extend your living space beyond your house.  


In 2022, there’s an outdoor rug for every style and budget from bright and bold stripes to tropical inspired designs that will fill your outdoor space with personality. Looking for some inspiration? Read on for the top trends in outdoor rugs this season.
Big and Bold

The great outdoors is the perfect environment to really embrace bold patterns and colour. Choosing an outdoor rug with a bold, playful design will inject your garden with character and personality.

Totally Tropical

Tropical inspired designs such as palm and leaf prints will bring the holiday vibes direct to your back garden. A botanical print will add a dose of greenery to the smallest of spaces, perfect for balconies or courtyards that might otherwise be lacking in plantlife.

Grey Scale

For smaller spaces like balconies and courtyards, neutrals and grey tones remain a popular choice for a chic, minimalist look. Many outdoor rugs are also available as runners for smaller spaces.

Abstract Florals

In 2022, homeowners are looking to inject joy into their outdoor and indoor living spaces. Abstract florals are the ideal way to transform your patio into a bright, welcoming space. Gardens benefit from natural light so don’t be afraid to go bigger and bolder than you would indoors.
