Hi all!  Does anyone know if they will be having an outdoor patio mat as a TSV this year?  Usually they do have one, but I don't see anything in the program guide that might hint at one this year.

Thanks for any info you may have.

According to the Insider, at the top of the schedule in teeny print, on April 11. It says Veranda indoor/outdoor rug w/ bonus doormat. No other info.

I don't know about a TSV, but they have been offering the patio mats regularly this spring.  I saw several that I liked, but my old ones are still in great shape.

 

We purchased " knock off's" from a B&M store one time and they were junk.  Almost didn't last the first season.  The plastic just splintered and fell apart.

 

QVC patio mats are the best. I have a set for home and a set for each of my two RVs.

I'd like to offer up a heads up to the term 'patio mat' .

 

Q is selling two different things. They are selling patio mats, and they are selling outdoor rugs.

 

I have not bought the patio mats. They are thinner, fold up for taking on the go and storage, don't stay in place very well and often need to be staked down to stay in place.

 

The outdoor rugs are much more substantial, heavy and work like a real rug (indoors or out). They are thick and have to be rolled up, not folded, wear like iron, and are more for keeping in one place, not taking with you to the beach or in an RV.

 

Nothing wrong with either one, but I think many people might be buying one thinking they are getting the other, and I know when I first started watching them, I was unaware there was a significant difference.

I have a patio mat that I bought from QVC several years ago.  It came folded, and took almost 2 years for the fold lines to finally disappear.


A patio *rug* sounds much nicer.  Although the patio mat has worn like iron, I think the rug would be a little nicer to walk on with bare feet.

I prefer the patio mats.  They look great and are lightweight, easy to keep clean and dry fast outdoors.  The are great to walk on with bare feet and keep you from burning your toes off.I have never had trouble with the fold lines coming out smooth.

 

i have a beautiful patio rug. It is really nice looking, but takes too long too dry after a rain shower. if I had a concrete or stone patio, it wouldn't matter how long it took to dry, but I keep my "rugs"  on a wooden deck and don't like all that moisture sitting there for too long under the rug.  Right now it is rolled up in my shed.  It's nice enough to use indoors, but I don't need an indoor rug.

 

I love the outdoor rugs and patio mats. They really bring your outdoor space together.
