Rugs are the grounding point to any room, so with the new addition of our outdoor rug from Rugs USA, I was inspired to share my apartment patio décor on the blog. I’m all about mixing old world style with modern simplicity, so I went with Moroccan motifs mixed in with mid-century modern vibes.
We cleared the patio whilst it was undergoing the transformation, and this gave us a chance to give it some TLC. We gave it a good clean and found the best acrylic concrete sealer to apply – this only took just over an hour to dry and will protect the finish of the concrete for years to come, so was well worth doing. However, there’s no saying when the concrete will start to display cracks or bits that need to be repaired. We’re definitely trying to prevent the deterioration of our concrete for as long as possible, but we’re thinking about purchasing some concrete adhesive in advance to be prepared when cracks do start to show. The concrete definitely takes a lot of preparation but it’s worth it for the outcome. One rug, some outdoor garden furniture, and a few accessories later, our patio is feeling a lot more like an extension of our living space. The concrete floor was obviously cold and uncomfortable before the new rug, but now we spend a lot more time out here. Rugs can be expensive. If you’re on a budget, it’s always worth looking out on places like craigslist for second hand rugs, then just look for Rug Cleaning Hawthorn, or whatever your location is, and have it cleaned! I guarantee it will be cheaper than purchasing a brand new one and most times, a good clean brings an old rug out as good as new!
Cheers to brunch on the patio or maybe even a romantic candlelit dinner soon!
