Remember this sad patio I revealed last week? This is the budget space I am currently working on with a $400 budget. It may not seem like a very big budget since we are completely making over this space, but with a few affordable pieces it will definitely be possible. For this budget patio makeover I am wanting to create an extension to the home, a lovely space to read or hang out plus an extra living area during the summer months. I have sourced some great items to help bring this patio to life.
What I am searching for to complete the budget patio makeover is an outdoor love seat, a 5×8 rug, throw pillows, black lanterns, string lights and some outdoor plants that can come in for the winter. The key piece is the 5×8 rug. Since the patio is only 5 feet by 8 feet the rug will perfectly cover the patio and really bring the look together.
For me fining the rug was the hardest piece of the puzzle! I knew what I wanted but didn’t find it right away.
Here are 3 tips to find the perfect outdoor rug
1. Use an online store that allows you to save favorites
A lot of stores now allow you to create an account and save your favorite items. This is a great way to keep track of the items you like, and saves time when you finally decide to make a purchase.
2. Know what you are looking for in an outdoor rug
If you are simply searching for “Outdoor Rug” it will be overwhelming. The best way to start is measure your space, know the size of rug you need and the style you are looking for in a rug. This narrowed my search down from thousands and allowed me to not get frustrated in my search.
3. Set a budget
This one may not be the first thing you think of when searching for a new rug. Setting a budget will narrow your search down even further and not give you buyer’s remorse later on! Knowing your budget means you won’t be tempted by the really expensive rugs, because there are definitely some nice ones!
