Cheap Outdoor Carpet

Outdoor carpet on patio

Outdoor carpeting has come a long way from the days when all you could get was that kelly green, AstroTurf-looking stuff. Nowadays, new technologies allow for far more interesting decorative choices.

If you’re looking to carpet a porch, playroom, mudroom or utility room, then good-looking cheap outdoor carpet may be the perfect solution. Treated to resist sun damage, this carpeting also sheds water and can be cleaned with detergent and a hose. High-traffic outdoor areas and water-prone indoor rooms are perfect locations to install cheap outdoor carpet.

Carpet Tiles

One of my favorite carpet products is Flor carpet tiles. These 19"x19" square tiles come with padded backs and can be adhered directly to the sub-floor, whether it’s concrete or wood. Flor now offers an excellent outdoor collection. Tiles with an area equivalent to a 5'x7' rug cost less than $300 and is an easy DIY flooring installation project with Flor’s patented dot system.

Colorful Carpets

There are truly some beautiful colors on the market for cheap outdoor carpet as well. Home Depot has an ocean blue carpet that is sold by the linear foot and is 6' wide. At $4.82/linear foot, this carpeting works out to a little less than $1 per square foot.

Berber Carpet

Elegant berber makes for a great-looking, cheap outdoor carpet when made of Olefin and treated to resist fading and sun-damage. Ingles Carpet has a nice selection of colors available to coordinate well with any outdoor room.

The outdoor living room has been growing in popularity over the last several years and it’s no wonder why. With more and more people trying to make the most of every square inch, it is only natural that out-of-doors spaces have taken on great importance. What was once only popular in places such as sunny California can now be enjoyed in any weather due to advances in manufacturing weather-resistant fabrics and flooring. So don’t let a little rain keep you stuck indoors.
