This collection of indoor/outdoor carpets and rugs is no exception! You'll find a wealth of designs - from classic to traditional, casual and contemporary - in an array of rug sizes, including round ones.


Made with Courtron™ Polypropylene

In developing its collection of indoor/outdoor rugs, Couristan wanted to blend outdoor performance with indoor style and comfort. The result is a collection woven with the finest 100% Courtron™ polypropylene. Even the backing consists of Courtron rather than jute to ensure that the entire rug is completely water resistant.

In addition to resisting water, Courtron polypropylene is:

  • Resistant to fading and deterioration from chemicals
  • Mold and mildew resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Wear resistant

Furthermore, it can be easily cleaned and generates low levels of static electricity.

You can now add area rugs to your front door, back porch, outdoor lanai area or pool area to easily add warmth underfoot, style and design to any space outdoors.

Indoor/Outdoor Rugs that Are Easy to Care For

Vacuum Frequently

Preferably use a vacuum cleaner with rotating brushes and vacuum those spaces with higher use frequently. Although more expensive, rotating brushes are more efficient at removing dust and dirt. 

Quickly Remove Stains

Always remove stains as quickly as possible. You'll find detailed instructions for dealing with specific types of rug stains from

Professionally Clean Your Rugs on a Regular Basis

Regular professional cleaning will preserve the quality and performance of your indoor/outdoor rug. You have three options:

  • Extraction Cleaning
  • Powder Cleaning
  • Shampooing


How to Choose Your Outdoor Area Rug SIZE OR SHAPE?

Selecting an area rug for an outdoors space is no different from doing so for a room inside your home.

  • Measure the outdoor space
  • Be aware of doors, pillars, fireplaces and cooking areas

Couristan offers this advice:

Always consider special shapes such as rounds, squares and octagons when it comes to surrounding your outdoor furniture. As an example, a round patio or decking table may look appropriate with a round shaped area rug below it.

As with indoor area rugs, generally, your area rug should be at least 2 feet wider than the table on all sides.

When considering using an outdoor hand-hooked area rug which features a thicker surface pile, leave enough space so that the area rug extends beyond the back legs of a chair when your guests are seated. This is critical as your chairs may wobble on an uneven surface.
