The timing was perfect. I received an email asking if I would be interested in looking at some rugs for a possible review. Since we have been remodeling our home, I am in need of several new rugs for our entryways, mudrooms, and bathrooms. I couldn't believe my luck.
When I looked through the available options, I was disappointed that none of them looked like they would match our decor and the size I was looking for. Then, late one evening, I looked through the options again and realized I had skipped over one that said Indoor/Outdoor rug. I hadn't looked at that one because I was so focused on looking for rugs for the inside of our home.
But, I clicked on it, since I actually had been wanting a rug for our screened in porch for a long time. When I clicked on the rug, I couldn't believe my luck. From the photo, it looked like the perfect color and size for our porch. So, I selected this rug in the 6x9 size and hoped it would be just the rug I wanted it to be.
Rug Expedition is a website based in San Antonio, Texas. They specialize in selling area rugs. They offer a selection of over 100,000 rugs, which makes them one of the largest online rug inventories in the United States. The process to choose and order a rug can be so overwhelming. Can you imagine scrolling through 100,000 rugs? Their website offers rugs in every single color in the rainbow and more, plus sizes and styles to fit every space and decor of your home. It can be intimidating to start the process of buying a rug, but by being allowed to narrow down your options with the available filters, it makes the process so much easier. If you start with choosing a color, say brown, then you can narrow down your choices by price range, shape, size, and decor style. Just making these choices alone, dropped my choices from 25 pages of options to only 4 pages. Then you can narrow it even more by choosing a material and if you are really knowledgeable about rugs, by a designer. If you are a Pinterest user, you can pin a rug you like right away and keep track of the ones you like. They even offer a FREE 30-Day in home trial. If you decide it doesn't work it your home, you can send it back for a full refund. The best part? All the rugs ship for FREE!
My rug arrived very quickly and was well wrapped to protect it. If you are ordering this as a surprise, keep in mind these are delivered in clear plastic, so there is no question what you ordered when it arrives.
I quickly laid out the rug on our porch while saying a little prayer that it would work and then felt a sigh of relief when I realized it was just right. I may have jumped up and down with a little happiness clap when I looked over the whole room. It immediately gave the porch that homey feel. I have to admit, I was afraid my husband was going to hate it, but when he walked onto the porch for the first time, he stated that "it really warmed up the porch".
As you can see, our cat really likes it too. The rug has sage green, beige, tan, and yellow stripes throughout, with the yellow giving it that "pop" of color it needs. I am beyond thrilled with the rug. We have had our first several rainy days with the rug on the porch as well, and it drains through and dries quickly.
I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Rug Expedition and this Indoor/Outdoor rug. Check out their website HERE for your next rug purchase.

Thanks to Rug Expeditions for sending this rug for the purpose of a review. This review is my honest opinion. I was not compensated in any way for this review.
