From seaside motifs to subtle hints of beachy charm, nautical outdoor rugs are available in a range of styles. Cool gray and blue carpets with anchor and ship wheel prints evoke a sense of ocean-faring adventure. For something more subdued, consider a mat with seafoam green and beige tones to emulate the waves lapping at the beach.

Whether you have a roomy covered gazebo or a small back porch, this selection is sure to include a perfectly sized nautical patio rug for your outdoor decor. Go all out with a large area rug that spans the length of your seating set. For quaint areas where space is at a premium, a modest square rug beneath a cocktail table completes the look.
