My apartment has a screened in patio but the floor is cement. I wanted to get some type of rug to put down on it make it more cozy and also to be able to walk on without worrying about my feet getting dirty from the cement. I also wanted something that was not expensive, and could withstand the weather for those windy Florida storms we get that blow rain in through the screens.
Enter the magical world of Ikea. :o)
I found the perfect rug(s) to put on my patio. They are called Hemon rugs and are 6'7'' x 2'6''. My balcony is about 9' by 8' so I ended up getting 4 of the rugs. I laid them out side by side, starting at the very front of my patio where the screen is. They were not long enough to cover the entire width of the patio so I centered them and with the four of them I was able to cover the length of my patio completely and I have about less than 2 feet exposed on either side. The area the four rugs cover is plenty to walk on and covers the floor of my patio quite evenly.
The rugs are made up of 66% seagrass, 27% polypropylene, and 7% jute. They are ideal for patio use that is surrounded by walls and a roof. Perfect for me!
