I have to be honest – I have always thought that having a rug under my dining room table was a horrible idea because I have young kids who usually make a huge mess at each meal. However, a friend let me in on a little secret: use an outdoor rug!
Outdoor rugs are made to handle the elements (which my kids can be as fierce as a tropical storm!), so they are extremely durable. They are also built to last and so easy to clean. And outdoor rugs have come SO FAR in the past few years – you can get so many amazing designs and colors that would be gorgeous in your home! And one more bonus: they are BUDGET-FRIENDLY!! #winning!
I ordered this outdoor rug to go under my new dining room table and I not only love the color and style, but I love how soft it is. Clean up has been so easy – I literally just use warm water and a rag and I have been able to get up everything so far! I LOVE how the rug separates my table from the rest of the room and adds just a little bit of texture to my floor.
I have received many questions about my rug and where to purchase the best outdoor rugs for the best price, so here are 10 of my favorite outdoor rugs that are perfectly kid-friendly for under your dining room table!
