Rated 5 out of 5 by Katep The rugs are perfect!
The colors are exactly as seen in the catalog, the weight is perfect, they are a nice weight so they lay flat and thin but are also very durable, they clean up easily and still look brand new. I have purchased them in numerous colors.

by Highrider Best purchase ever!
This rug is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I bought the rust version for a mid-toned wood laminate floor in a warm-themed bedroom. It lends an elegant, gracious look to the room, both soothing and energizing at the same time. (!!) The weave has a slight “waffle” texture which is not objectionable for the price. The thread has a tweedy, irregular dye to it, so it looks more natural, not synthetic. The texture is comfortable for bare feet. There was a barely perceptible area where the dots did not blend smoothly, as if the computer design involved a cut-paste and left a thin dividing line of negative space. But after placing that end away from the entrance and adding furniture, you could not tell. Smell was minimal (I tend to be very sensitive to off-gassing), and was gone within 48-72 hours.
It was stiffly curled, so I steam-ironed it first. Laid it out flat, cut the heavy plastic ship-wrapping into two large pieces, inserted/overlapped the pieces under each section to be ironed to protect the floor. Placed a THICK cotton bath towel between the plastic and rug, and another THICK bath towel on top. (Mine was 8x11, so I worked in sections approx. 30”x50”). Used no more than wool heat and lots of steam-button. You could see flattening quickly. Took almost 2 hrs but was so worth it. The result is amazing, amazing, amazing. Rarely do I marvel about a purchase months later, but I still do. Would give this 8 stars if I could, for the phenomenal design bang for your buck and washability to boot.

Love the carpet. Use it in the office beneath my office chair, desk and wife's office chair. Doesn't wrinkle nor slip. Looks great all of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ModernLiving Excellent value & quality!
It may be an indoor/outoor rug, but we're using them in our modern decor master bedroom and they look terrific! You'll want to purchase rug pads if you have hardwood floors like we do. We have pets and love the ease of care and cleanup for these rugs and are considering purchasing additional rugs for our master bath and our kitchen as well. We got the rust color and it is beautiful. I was concerned I wouldn't like the way it feels on bare feet, but it's no problem. The price can't be beat either -- just great all-around.

This rug is very good looking and well made, with nicely finished edges. I was concerned about buying a black rug for outdoors (we live on a golf course) but it is not really a deep black so dirt does not show. The finishing touch for our outdoor patio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thursday Love your indoor/outdoor rugs!
This is the second rug I've bought from you and I am very satisfied. Prompt delivery, looks just like the photo in the catalog. Love the fact I can clean it myself and lay out in the sun to dry. Will use it interchangeably with your grey/sand chevron rug of same size. Appreciate the sale price, too.

I wanted an indoor-outdoor for a tiled bathroom and this is the perfect fit and texture, etc. It fits nicely so did not need a pad underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovinggreen Great color and design
I ordered the sage carpet and love it, but wish I'd ordered a runner as well. I may come back for a larger version for my living room. The color, pattern and weave flatter my entry and will protect it from snow, rain, soil. I'm impressed thus far. The price was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Transplant I purchased two 8 x 10 Marina Indoor/Outdoor rugs
I purchased two Black & Sand 8 x 10 Marina Indoor/Outdoor rugs for use on my concrete outdoor patio. They arrived quicker than expected and look great. When the heavy rains came, the rugs dried out quickly, then the pollen covered them and they washed out easily. They are in the full sun most of the day. I would definitely recommend this product, very durable. Great to define sitting areas.

Such a cute outdoor rug! I have the rust one on the front porch under the coffee table and the black one outside my kitchen door. They hold up very well outdoors retaining good color; and they are easy to clean.

Great wearability on all your indoor/outdoor carpets. We have 2 for out screened deck that are over 12 years old and they still look brand new. Just purchased the marina rug for a multi purpose room...love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrettyPracticalSpaces Looking great outside--and in!
These rugs are great for high traffic areas because the are flat woven--no yarns to get pulled by cat or stuck in vacuum. Ballard Signature items seem to be a good value.
The folded over (hemmed edge) did unravel, but a replacement is being sent.
They are not cushiony, so don't use where you want a plush rug.
Using at large kitchen sink island, entry and outdoor covered patio.
Seems to be drying out well. For outside, recommend specific outdoor premium rug pad for air and moisture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Licia Just right for coverage in a high-traffic area...with visual appeal!
This indoor-outdoor rug is just right for coverage by the kitchen door- in our home, this is the usual entry for most family members (with garden dirt and beach sand on their shoes). I placed it just in front of the bench that we use to change our shoes. I would suggest using a small rug pad to keep it securely in place. I love the fact that is can be hosed down - It is durable, of very nice quality and best of all, it has a classic look - no need to give up style for durability. The price was an added bonus- making this a good value as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northwesterner Perfect for my needs
I ordered 3 of the 2x3.7 rugs in mocha, 2 for covered outside decks with doors that open onto them, and 1 for an interior floor entrance area. So, 2 are outside under covered porch areas and 1 is inside the house. The mocha color is kind of a warm taupe, not light, not dark, pretty much true to the color online. It looks good with our maple floor as well as on our lighter colored Trex deck---not too contrasty.
Only negative is how crinkled up they come as packaged. I wish they would come wrapped around a cardboard cylinder to minimize the curls and wrinkles. As with another longer rug of the same type different color that I ordered a while back, I had to wet the rugs down and place weights at the corners to flatten them out. This is a real pain. Other than that they are just wonderful and have worn well in my northwest climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ishopfromhome great rug for the price
The color was just as seen online. The rug unrolled and was flat right away. I have a smaller one in the blue by my front door and the rust color under my kitchen table. I would recommend this rug and would buy it again.

I got two small rugs to cover up burns on my wall to wall carpeting. Love them, the color (slate) is even better than I thought. The pattern is chic. All in all, great rugs!

by jms0211 True to Color, love this rug!
I kept coming back to look at this rug and just couldn't decide. Put it in my cart and took it out many times. I couldn't justify shipping charges when so many other online stores offer free shipping. After searching all over for similar and not finding anything close to what I wanted I put this rug-the rust color in my cart and hit submit fast so I wouldn't change my mind again. I received the rug today and I am so happy I purchased. The size is 2' x 3'7" and it is perfect for the entry to front door on stoop. If you are hesitating... I hope my review helps, you are getting a quality rug, true to color. Just do it!!

I ordered 4 of the Marina rugs for my kitchen, bath and laundry room. I am so pleased with the quality. The edges of the rugs are bound beautifully and they laid down flat within a day. They don"t feel like an indoor outdoor rug. Comfy underfoot. Would definately order again.Very, very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Priscy Beautiful = Quality!
Ballard is synonymous with quality! This rug is so smart looking. Please be advised the rug runner is 36 inches wide, not 2'7" (30") as indicated in the rug description. I have two of the long runners that will go either side of my kitchen island. These replace my previous Ballard runners that looked brand new for three years after heavy use. Only retiring them because we are moving to a new home and treating ourselves to the new Ballard rugs. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nanaX3 Really good quality rug
Been looking at this rug for awhile and finally ordered. Good size, nice feel, I put it in the entry way, where it looks like an indoor not indoor outdoor rug. Got the tan color and it is perfect.
Totally recommend this rug!
