Outdoor rugs not only bring a splash of colour and style to your garden rooms or outdoor spaces – they are also super durable and can be left out in all weathers. Predicted to be one of the must-have buys of the year, Daniel Prendergast from The Rug Seller reveals what’s new for ’22, as he rolls out the hottest outdoor rug trends and shares some brilliant buys for those on a budget…

Key Trends

Bright & Bold

Rivi Outdoor-Kiwi

“We’re predicting our Scion Rivi Kiwi Indoor/outdoor rug will be a hugely popular rug choice for 2022, with bright colours dominating our Instagram feeds on how to style outdoor living spaces,” says Daniel.

Mid-Century Cool

Giant Linear Stem Outdoor rug-Persimmon

With designs like this one from Orla Kiely, it’s not hard to see why outdoor rugs are so popular. Why not add a hint of 1960’s cool to your garden?

Geometric Grids

Antibes Linear design outdoor rug

Monochrome colour palettes and large scale intricate patterns create the perfect juxtaposition against nature and the great outdoors. This chic and refined Antibes Linear design will give a stylish and grown up vibe to your entertaining space. It’s a great budget buy with prices starting at £43.20.

Florals & Tropicals

Tropicana 51 rug

Florals, leaves and tropical colours are the perfect way to transform a patio area into a bright, lively space. Gardens benefit from an abundance of natural light so don’t be afraid to go brighter and bolder than you would indoors.

Textured Neutrals

Lipari Salerno rug

Just like our indoors spaces, greys and neutrals are still in high demand. This Lipari Salerno design helps zone off this seating area, giving a dedicated space for relaxing.

Mediterranean Boho Vibes

Terrace Diamond-Gold rug

While we might not be venturing overseas so often now, we can still bring a Miditerranean vibe to our garden. This golden yellow Modern Diamond Geometric rug is a great choice if you are sticking to a budget, with prices from £33.

Short on Space? Add A Runner



This runner is designed for indoor or outdoor use, with a very eye-catching textured 3D pattern.
