I’ve been trying — as many of us have, I’m sure — to spruce up our beyond-hideous deck for prime summer enjoyment. It’s a great space, don’t get me wrong — it’s just in dire need of a couple of repairs and a new coat of paint or two. But in the meantime (or at least until it stops raining for a few days) I’m planning on just covering it up with a cute indoor/outdoor rug. I’ve scoured the web for some options, and here’s what I’ve come up with so far, ranging from $35- $200:
Dash and Albert have a stunning diamond rug, above, starting at $34 for a 2’x3′.
I love the candy apple red design on this Henri Floral Rio Mat from Cost Plus World Market, $40 for a 6’x9′.
I’ve always been a fan of Chilewich placemats and runners, but I’m absolutely in love with these 24″x36″ spun vinyl utility mats, $75.
If your tastes tend to the more traditional side, perhaps this trompe l’oeil Persian rug floor mat (made from polyester and foam) from Urban Outfitters, $148 for a 66″x46″, is a good choice.
I love the bold geometric design of this indoor/outdoor rug from Overstock.com, a large 7’10″x11′ for $178.
Last but definitely not least is the ultra-cool reversible pegboard rug from CB2, 5’x8′, $200.
I’ll probably end up getting more than one — what doesn’t go on the deck will be great in our sad dungeon of a basement! — Megan B.
