The best outdoor rugs for summer
Create a stylish patio space with our round-up of the best summer outdoor rugs
There's nothing better than enjoying the warm weather that summer brings, which means creating a comfortable and relaxing space to enjoy in your garden. Whether you've set up your garden sofa in a shady spot, perfectly located your sun lounger to soak up the rays, or carefully arranged your patio to create an al-fresco dining space, nothing quite completes your set-up like an outdoor rug.
Not only do they help to create zones in large gardens, but they also protect your feet from the rough surfaces, so you can go bare foot and really embrace the summer weather. Not only are they practical, but they offer an elevated aesthetic, allowing you to bring your interior design style to your garden. From rugs inspired by Moroccan tiles to Persian-style options, we've found a few of our favourite outdoor rugs in time for the upcoming heatwave...
