Outdoor carpet for garden: which one to choose?
For use in terraces or outdoor spaces of the home during the summer, there are some carpet options that are especially suitable due to their resistance and durability in adverse weather conditions. Below, we briefly review the most recommended and most popular types of rugs for terraces:
Synthetic fiber rugs
Rugs made from synthetic fibers, such as polypropylene or polyester, are a popular choice for outdoor spaces. These materials are resistant to moisture, fading and stains, making them ideal for withstanding exposure to sun and rain. They are also easy to clean and maintain.
Synthetic sisal rugs
Synthetic sisal is a popular choice for those seeking the natural look of sisal fibers, but with greater resistance to outdoor conditions. These rugs are durable, moisture and stain resistant.
PVC rugs are perfect for terraces or outdoor spaces with heavy traffic. These mats are resistant to moisture, UV rays and are slip resistant. In addition, they are very easy to clean, just hose them down or scrub them with soap and water.
It is important to keep in mind that, regardless of the type of carpet you choose for your terrace or outdoor space, it is advisable to verify that they are specifically designed for outdoor use and that they have weather-resistant characteristics.
