Essential summer accessory: 5 awesome ways to use your outdoor rug

Whether summer 2015 turns out to be a scorcher or a washout, come rain or shine there’s one accessory that will complement all your summer plans: a supremely stylish, yet perfectly practicaloutdoor rug from Unnatural Flooring.

Simply roll up your rug, and keep it handy in your car boot, or next to your front door, ready for every summer adventure as it unfolds…

#1 – Picnics – unroll your rug to protect you from damp grass and create an utterly comfortable picnic spot worthy of a post-lunch snooze in the dappled sunshine. And if a friendly dog bounds over to investigate, muddy paws wipe off woven vinyl with virtually no effort at all, leaving you free to get back to that lazy summertime nap.

#2 – Garden Parties – create a stylish entertaining space with your woven vinyl rug underfoot to protect your lawn (or your guests’ party shoes!). Whether placed under garden furniture, or used to decorate your gazebo floor, your rug will cope with whatever your party throws at it – from spillages to high heels – and its slip-resistance makes it a safe surface for any impromptu dance moves!

#3 – Beach Days – claim your small patch of beach and make your base for the day with towels laid over your waterproof, woven vinyl rug for ultimate comfort and sand minimisation! Then stretch out, relax, and watch the mesmerising waves as they roll in.

#4 – Camping – keep your tent, caravan or camper van dry and mud-free with a woven vinyl rug used as an extra floor covering inside, or create a relaxing outdoor space by placing your camping furniture on one of our rugs so you can comfortably chill out with a well-earned glass of wine or beer and enjoy your campsite view.

#5 – Festivals – your tent needs to be able to stand up to the festival endurance test as much as you do! If mud and beer are in abundance, a woven vinyl rug will be your god send. Keep your clothes dry and off the ground with our handy, easy-to-clean, waterproof outdoor rug, and when its time to make that long journey home, it rolls up easily to be stowed away until your next summer adventure.

How to create a stunning outdoor living space

It’s that wonderful time of year again when suddenly we rediscover how lovely it is to spend time outside.

If you’re lucky enough to have some outdoor space at home, however large or small, why not make it a fabulous extension to your indoor living space?

It’s surprisingly easy to create a stylish outdoor retreat – perfect for lazing with a book in the summer sunshine, hosting late night barbeques under the stars, or even enjoying a spot of yoga whilst listening to beautiful birdsong.

You can effortlessly transform an ordinary patio, or deck, into a stunning outdoor entertaining space by using a stylish weatherproof rug as a focal point for an intimate dining zone, or relaxed seating area.
Enhance your outdoor living space by clustering rattan lounge furniture around a rug, or define an alfesco eating area with a rug underneath your garden dining furniture.

Unnatural Flooring has the look and feel of a natural sisal or seagrass, but is a fully waterproof, slip resistant woven vinyl that will not fade in the sun. It’s easy to clean with hot soapy water and a simple scrubbing brush, or it can even be jet washed! It’s also great for making decking safe and easy to maintain.

Available in a range of classic and contemporary colours that complement any garden furniture style, Unnatural Flooring can be fitted in garden rooms or conservatories (or any indoor room), or purchased as rug to add a homely touch to your patio, balcony or deck.

Add a few pots brimming with bright flowers, a Moroccan style throw, a string of lanterns, and a fire pit… and you’ll feel so at home outside you won’t want to go back in!

The perfect quick and easy kitchen update

If your kitchen is looking tired, but you want to avoid the upheaval, or cost, of a full kitchen refurbishment project, a new kitchen floor could be the solution for you – a quick and easy style update that won’t break the bank.

The kitchen is the hub of the home, where cooking, family gatherings, homework, pets, spilled foods, cleaning products (and much more!) all take their toll on the floor. Your kitchen floor needs to be able to withstand heavy traffic, and constant use, and still look great.

It’s easy to refresh your kitchen look with a new woven vinyl floor. Available as a rug, or a professionally fitted floor, it offers a practical flooring solution that is easy-to-clean, durable, warm and comfortable underfoot, and makes a striking style statement too.

Whether you’re looking to update your kitchen with a contemporary splash of colour, or enhance a classic scheme with neutral tones, the Unnatural Flooring range incorporates the most popular design trends to make it easy for you to update your home and add the finishing touch to your dream kitchen.

Combining the look and feel of natural flooring with the waterproof, slip resistant, easy-to-clean durability of a woven vinyl, Unnatural Flooring’s practical features include:
