Cow Rugs - Versatile And Stylish Rugs For Your Wooden And Stone Flooring


Many people want to incorporate a beautiful natural element into their space, but they struggle to find the right decorative pieces to add to their rooms. While using potted plants and vases throughout your space is one idea, you may be looking for a different way to bring natural elements into your home. A more unique idea is to use a cowhide rug for home decoration. With a closer look at how cowhide rugs can be used to decorate your wooden and stone floors, you will see why these may be the perfect solution for your home decorating challenges.

The Versatile Style of Cow Rugs

When you think about cowhide rugs, you may think about them in a rustic or country home, but their versatile style also makes them a great choice for homes with traditional décor, modern or contemporary décor or another look. Cowhide rugs are available in a wide range of colors and styles, making them well-suited for many home decorative styles. They are available in colors that include buff, beige, tan, rust, black, white and more. Some are a solid hue, and others are mottled or speckled with two or more colors. They can be used to gracefully add natural softness to hard floor surfaces while also enhancing the décor in your room.

The Durability of Cowhide Rugs

While many people are drawn to the beauty and style of cow rugs, there are other reasons why cowhide rugs are popular as a decorative material in homes. Cow hide is among the most durable types of floor coverings available. You can easily place this floor covering over even the most frequently trafficked areas of your home, and you will not have to worry about the rug showing wear. If you are looking for a decorative rug that you can get a lot of use out of, cowhide rugs are a great option.

A Hypoallergenic Material

In addition to being stylish and versatile, these rugs are also hypoallergenic. Many types of rugs have allergens that can create respiratory issues for those inside the home. These are rugs that you can easily place inside a home with allergy sufferers, people who have asthma or those who have other respiratory health issues.

Dressing up your home's hard floors with the soft texture of a beautiful rug is a wonderful idea. While there are many types of rugs that you can choose to use for home décor, there are considerable benefits available to you when you incorporate cowhide into your space. Take a closer look at some of the beautiful cow hide rugs available, and you may discover the ideal option to sprawl across your wood or stone floors.

Pet Feeding Station

Having 5 dogs at home is no joke! Feeding them and taking care of them eats up most of my time. Although I share the job with my daughter, I am the one who does the job most of the time.  Feeding time is always the busiest time at home as we have to prepare 5 different set of foods.  We don't give the same kind of foods to everyone that's why it's a bit difficult to prepare foods for each of them. Our 2 year old shih-tzu cannot eat chicken as he got a sensitive skin, so most of the time we feed him with beef or pork liver and rice.  He eats dog foods (Alpo) only for breakfast and snacks, he likes rice for lunch and dinner.  Our Golden Retriever who is less than a year old but very big now only eats rice mixed with dog food.  Their dish bowls, dog food supply, and other paraphernalia are placed everywhere in the house and I find it to be too messy.  Because of this, I am thinking of fabricating a pet feeding station where I could put everything in one place. Less mess...less eye sore.

I am considering the following designs:










I'm pretty sure any of these feeding stations can help us organize our pet essentials better. :)
