Put a smile on your face and rejoice! The dreary winter months have finally passed, the sun is back in full force and you can finally venture out onto your patio, porch, verandah or deck and… Oh dear, that cracked concrete and/or splintered, weathered wood doesn’t exactly look like an inviting space for your bare feet, tumbling toddlers or impromptu picnicking, does it?
You’ve already sunk a ton into turning the inside of your home into a viable living space/working office/amusement park/survival shelter, so you’re not crazy to balk at the idea of plunking down yet another small fortune on rehabilitating your outdoor spaces that you’ll get to use maybe five or six months this year. But before your newly won smile turns into a frown and a season-long migraine, let us give you another good reason to break out into a grin: Boutique Rugs is offering you a solution that will revamp your outdoor spaces for a fraction of the price of a deck, patio or backyard renovation.
With the brand’s seemingly limitless collection of beautiful, high-quality outdoor rugs, you’ll be sure to find a rug that will transform a humdrum patio into a vibrant entertaining space or a busted-looking deck into a place with a gentle but durable floor covering where kids can safely play. Basically, Boutique Rugs is giving you an affordable, practical way to bring your living room out into the sunshine. That’s true no matter what space you’re trying to cover, as their rugs run the gamut of sizes and styles.

Broadmeadows Area Rug (starting at $87; boutiquerugs.com)
Farmhouse rustic more your style? The Broadmeadows Area Rug’s classic and stylish faded-blue, red and beige pattern will add a subtle pop of color against that barnhouse scheme you’ve got going in the yard.
Matane Area Rug (starting at $119; boutiquerugs.com)
And there’s nothing wrong with the classic appeal of the traditional Matane Area Rug, with butter cream/burnt orange/sky blue flourishes that’ll make your balcony into a proper tea parlor in about as long as it takes to sweep out a 5-by-7 area and lay down a runner.
And because Boutique Rugs regularly offers sales, it’s always a good idea to check in on the Boutique Rugs site for the latest looks for pennies on the dollar. During the month of May, save up to 80% OFF on site, in celebration of Mother’s Day, Boutique Rug’s Birthday and Memorial Day!
Even though its outdoor rugs are long-lasting, there’s always room for more great rugs — or the brand’s extensive collection of side tables and accents, pillows and throws for livening up even more of your outdoor spaces.
The events of the last year have made our personal outdoor spaces even more precious to us than before, but that doesn’t mean you have to pay out the nose to maintain your al fresco safe spaces. Boutique Rugs offers that ideal intersection of comfortable, good-looking, affordable and long-lasting for every need.
And that’ll really put a smile on your face.
