Just like you'd lay out your living room, placing an outdoor rug by your seating is the prefect addition to outdoor living room ideas  zoning your space to make it more intimate. Patios can often look a little cold and stark, so adding an inexpensive rug is a great budget patio idea. You could even use an additional rug to hang from a tired looking fence or wall, a bit like a wall hanging or tapestry, which is another great outdoor wall decor idea.

With it's waterproof fibres, the Aldi outdoor rug is easy to wipe clean and can even be lightly hosed down if sticky soft drinks get dropped by over-excited little ones.

Plus if you're thinking of creating your own outdoor cinema in your garden this summer, an outdoor rug would work perfectly to seat your buddies coming over for movie night. So, when will you be snapping yours up?
