We’re all looking for the next best thing to add to our home decor. Something that makes a room feel homey, inviting and comfortable. One of the best ways to warm up a cold room is by adding a rug to the hardwood floor. It instantly changes the look of the space and makes it feel calming. Unfortunately, your typical area rug can be dirty and difficult to keep clean, plus it may need to be replaced often because of heavy foot traffic. For these reasons, many homeowners have found the beauty in owning cow hide.
Cowhide rugs are all the rage nowadays because of their aesthetic beauty and long-wearing ease. They come in all sorts of patterns and colors, enabling you to match the rug to any type of decor that you already have. Gone are the days when cow hide was only used in western and rustic decor because now, it can even be integrated into a modern background and fit perfectly.
There are also some pretty big benefits that come from owning a cowhide rug. For one, they’re totally hypoallergenic and won’t aggravate sensitive allergies. You might assume that because it’s natural animal hair, someone with an allergy to dander and fur won’t be able to own one of these rugs. The exact opposite is true because they have an organic hypoallergenic property that is unlike any other rug you’ve ever owned.
Your new cowhide rug is easy to clean and keep looking its best. Simply shake out the rug outdoors and it’s ready to be laid on the floor for another month before the next cleaning. It’s recommended that you don’t take a vacuum to the rug because it can pull up the hairs, but it’s just as easy to shake the rug out than it is to pull out your heavy upright vacuum. There are specialty cleaners you can use to spot treat the natural hide, but in most cases, the rug is stain-resistant and odor-free.
Along with all of the above mentioned benefits, cowhide is long-wearing and is literally going to last you for decades without needing to be replaced, repaired or deep cleaned. Many homeowners have had their cowhide rugs for years and it’s an investment that has paid for itself time and time again. While you might pay a little more for the rug upfront because of its beauty and durability, just think of all the boring, typical area rugs you would replace in the time you’ve owned just one cowhide piece. There are a variety of stores, both online and offline, that sell these amazing products, so do your research and consider adding this natural decoration to just about any room in the home.
