Best Outdoor Rugs for Rain 2019

Introduction

Choosing the best outdoor rugs for rain was no easy task. However, we had a few requirements which made it much easier to narrow down our final picks.

And, our first requirement was material that could withstand whatever Mother Nature dumped our way. Therefore, we needed a specific type of material which is both durable and water-resistant.

After researching diligently, we discovered the best material to withstand rain is polypropylene.  Polypropylene is extremely resilient while being lightweight.  Furthermore, it can be hosed down for a good cleaning and dries quickly.  So, if the polypropylene rug is left out in a torrential rain storm, the rug will be ready for use shortly after the skies clear.

Our next requirement for the best outdoor rugs for rain was style.  So, we chose an array of outdoor rugs ranging from classic, to contemporary, to artistic, and even a rug that replicates grass.  Therefore, there’s something for everyone on our list.

And, this particular requirement is often an afterthought, but we made sure our final picks are all mold and mildew resistant.  In addition, we made sure all of our final picks are UV resistant.  This helps to resist fading from the sun’s harmful rays and keeps the color looking sharp.

Finally, we turned to you, the consumer.  We wanted first hand accounts on how well each rug held up under less-than-desirable weather conditions.  This enabled us to narrow down the rugs to the top 8 best outdoor rugs for rain. And, we must say, these are some gorgeous outdoor rugs.
