20 Best Affordable Outdoor Rugs For the Porch

This is a post about affordable outdoor rugs.

Where you can get them.

Which ones have the best pattern.

Which ones I love that I’ve ordered for less than the cost of a fancy dinner.

But can we press pause for just a moment on the entire rug discussion?



Selection Sunday was yesterday and Baylor is a ONE SEED.



I’m so proud of you Bears. You. Are. Amazing.

Let March Madness commence.

And now? 

Back to our regularly scheduled rug program.

Let’s start with neutral.

Neutral with a pattern.

Most of my porches have a neutral background to go with the house.

Here’s our back porch.

This black and white striped rug is my new best find of the season.

I think it’s the bold, graphic pattern that makes me so happy.

I got it for under $50 at Walmart and it comes in different colors and sizes and it just makes the entire porch pop.

Best summer purchase so far.

All the sources for the porch are found here.

I also love this mini black and white striped mat that goes under our doormat. 

It makes any doormat even cuter.

Here’s the front porch from last spring.

After we painted the brick porch and the steps several years ago (best decision ever—here’s how it held up two years later) it was a LOT of painted surface, so I added these two black rugs to each side of the porch.

I’ve had them for over two years, so last fall I changed them out for these outdoor rugs.

I also love this rug or this rug for this space, too.

graphic pattern/blue and white floral/geometric pattern

mini blue pattern/mini stripe/classic floral

But what if you love blue and white like me?

No worries.

I got you.

I’m actually working on a fun project where I needed to find blue and white rugs.

And some of these?

May or may not have come home with me.

My favorite was this one. It’s truly meant for outside because it’s made of woven plastic, but IT’S SO PRETTY.

I also loved this tile pattern and this tiny stripe and the classic look of this rug.

And remember this backyard makeover from several years ago?

This rug is everything.

I got so many questions about the rug and then it sold out.

But in amazing news?

They brought it back this year.

How is your porch decorating going?

Are you getting it ready for spring?

Just remember—rugs are amazing. Planters are amazing. Porch swings are amazing.

But the one thing that every porch needs?

A little sweet tea.

Happy summer. 🙂

    Do you not like green? Or pink? You only ever show blue and black. Everything is really lovely but not in any other colors.

    How bout those Baylor Bears!? Love March Madness. I'm a HUGE Alabama fan but I know they won't make it far. I'm in a Fantasy group for March Madness and I've picked Baylor to win the whole thing! Go Baylor Bears.

    Great outdoor rug options! Thanks for sharing such good options. My very favorite "go to" source for outdoor rugs are anything Dash & Albert.

    I like the colorful one best! So pretty. I did a mini-spruce-up for my patio last summer and got a plastic navy and white striped rug, which was not my top choice, but it was the only one I could find in the size I needed. Turns out I like it better than I thought I would and probably more than my first choice! It makes my little area pretty and happy in the summer. But no, I am nowhere near putting it out yet--we got 2 inches of snow yesterday. Not patio weather here, I'm afraid.

    Pretty rugs. But...At my house we are surrounded by farmland, no wind protection. If I was to put out a patio rug, I could see my rugs flying to the neighbors house as I wrote this. They had to return the grill cover a few years back. They would be sick of me. 🤣

    I love these rugs! I think my one porch could use a rug refresh. I have a round (expensive) rug under a round dining table. Would a rectangle rug work? The products you bring to us are so great and fun! Thanks for shopping for us! Yesterday I reviewed many of your “What I Bought Wednesday” videos and made a HUGE purchase! YIKES! YAY!! 👏🏻😁
