Summer is just around the corner, and as the temperatures rise, so does our desire to spend more time outdoors. Transforming your backyard or patio into a comfortable and inviting living space has become a popular trend in recent years, and 2023 is no exception. Rug Love, your go-to destination for stylish and durable rugs, is here to help you stay on top of the hottest outdoor living trends this summer. Let's dive into five trends you'll want to consider for your outdoor oasis.


  1. Biophilic Design

Biophilic design is all about reconnecting with nature and incorporating natural elements into your living space. For your outdoor living area, consider adding plants and greenery, water features, and using natural materials such as wood or stone. Opt for earthy, organic colours for your rugs and furnishings to create a seamless blend with the surrounding environment. Rug Love offers a wide selection of eco-friendly and nature-inspired rugs, perfect for enhancing your outdoor living space's biophilic design.

  1. Multi-functional Spaces

Maximize the use of your outdoor space by creating versatile areas that cater to different activities. Divide your patio or backyard into separate zones for dining, lounging, and entertainment. Invest in modular furniture that can easily be rearranged to accommodate various occasions, and choose outdoor rugs with versatile patterns and colours to tie the different areas together. Rug Love's extensive collection of outdoor rugs is designed to suit any style and function.

  1. Bold Colours and Patterns

Summer 2023 is all about making a statement with vibrant colours and bold patterns. Break away from traditional neutral tones by incorporating bright and bold rugs, cushions, and accessories into your outdoor living space. Mix and match patterns such as geometrics, florals, and abstract designs for a fresh and playful look. Rug Love's selection of eye-catching outdoor rugs is the perfect starting point for your colourful outdoor makeover.

  1. Sustainable and Eco-friendly Materials

Sustainability continues to be a key trend in 2023, with more homeowners seeking eco-friendly options for their outdoor spaces. Choose furniture made from reclaimed or recycled materials, and opt for rugs and accessories crafted from natural, sustainable fibres such as jute, sisal, and seagrass. Rug Love is committed to offering a variety of environmentally responsible rugs, ensuring you can find the perfect sustainable option for your outdoor living area.

  1. Outdoor Lighting

Set the mood for your outdoor living space with innovative and stylish lighting solutions. String lights, lanterns, and LED fixtures can enhance the ambiance of your patio or backyard, making it more inviting for evening gatherings and al fresco dining. Opt for solar-powered or energy-efficient lighting options to minimize your environmental impact and save on energy costs.
