Rug Layering

What’s better than sprucing up your patio with a beautiful outdoor rug? Using two rugs! That's right, layering is a popular trend where you can incorporate unique combinations of rug styles, colors and textures. The only rule to layering rugs is the bottom rug needs to be larger than the top. We recommend saving plush rugs for the top layer. Rug layering is more of an art to express who you are rather than a science. For your patio, we suggest that you layer rugs like this 7' x 10' Outdoor Basic Rug on the bottom and this 5' x 8' Aruba Outdoor Rug on top.
