Guest Picks: Outdoor Rugs Step Lively Indoors
More designs than ever make outdoor rugs a stylish and durable choice for high-traffic rooms
I can't tell you how many rugs my family and I have gone through in our family room. It's a very high-traffic area with a family of five and two dogs, so I am thinking that an outdoor rug would be more practical for the space. Outdoor rugs come in all colors, shapes and sizes and are very inexpensive. They are more durable than a typical indoor rug, and you can easily clean them with a hose. The rugs will withstand heavy traffic and they don't skimp on style. Here is a roundup of a few of my favorites. — Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia
