Getting outdoor rugs that dry quickly is a must have for rainy climates such as Florida because nobody wants to be stepping on a wet rug while trying to chill on their patio.

The most important feature to consider is the material of the rug. Synthetic materials such as polypropylene, recycled plastic and olefin are good materials for outdoors and they also dry up fast. Avoid natural fiber materials such as jute or sisal.
