Image: Winton House

If you have an outdoor living space, pool room or an outdoor kitchen, Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor rugs work beautifully because they tie this space together with the rest of your home and make your outdoor area feel just as warm, inviting, and polished as the interior.

But we often encourage our customers, particularly when they’re looking for a rug for a high-traffic indoor area, to think about using a Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor rug for inside their home.

We have put together 3 reasons why you should use an indoor/outdoor rug INSIDE your home - durable, easy to clean, soft underfoot and easy on the budget. 

NO 1 - DURABLE FOR HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS

The entire Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor rug collection is made from high-quality, ultra-strong and durable materials - and doesn't compromise on style.

For an entryway, hallway or mud room that gets a lot of traffic, consider an indoor/outdoor runner. Or even the outside entrance to your house, you can use an area rug as a statement.

NO 2 - SIMPLE TO CLEAN & MAINTAIN

Dash & Albert Indoor/Outdoor rugs can add pattern & texture inside your home as well as being incredibly easy to clean.

They are perfect for under dining room tables and in kitchens and bathrooms -  being simple to clean and maintain - particularly with kids (and big kids). They will also resist mould & mildew.

They can be cleaned with cold soapy water and can even be hosed down to remove marks or stains. And again, variety and style is paramount.

The rugs are constructed to stand up to long-term outdoor use, but at the same time are designed with the beauty of an indoor rug.

If you have an outdoor living space, pool room or an outdoor kitchen, these rugs work beautifully because they tie this space together with the rest of your home and make your outdoor area feel just as warm, inviting, and polished as the interior.

You can also use one of the Dash & Albert indoor rugs and get the same ability to withstand wear and tear even from children and pets, yet you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics to get that peace of mind. Just a bit of regular vacuuming and spot cleaning should keep either your indoor or indoor/outdoor rug looking great. 

 

 

FAQ FOR INDOOR/OUTDOOR RUGS

1. What routine care and maintenance is required for a Dash & Albert Indoor Outdoor rug? 

While regular vacuuming and the occasional gentle shake should keep your Indoor Outdoor rug in ship shape condition. All Indoor Outdoor rugs can be cleaned with cold soapy water and an ordinary garden hose to remove marks, stains or mildew. Allow to air dry. Do not machine wash or tumble dry these rugs. 

2. How do I remove stubborn stains and marks from a Dash & Albert Indoor Outdoor rug?

We all have partners and children who just seem to find new ways of marking and staining furniture and floor coverings! For those really stubborn marks and stains we have found that the application of a little Vanish Preen with Oxi Action on the offending stain works wonders. Wet the affected area with cold soapy water, apply the Vanish Preen to the mark or stain, allow the Vanish Preen to soak into the stain, scrub gently with a soft brush until the stain comes away from the rug and then hose off with your garden hose and it will look as good as new. Hang the rug over the line, balcony or pool fence and allow it to air dry. Do not machine wash or tumble dry the rug.
