Do you love how popular cowhide rug runners are right now? You're in luck! This trend doesn't look like it's going anywhere soon.
As you shop for the perfect cowhide runner rug, you'll notice that many of your options are synthetic. The selection you'll find on this page, however, contains choices made from 100% cowhide. Many pieces feature brilliant dyes and intricate detail, but you're still getting all of the look and feel of a cowhide runner rug.
Below, we've included some of our favorite ways that people are using cowhide rug runners in their homes for your inspiration:
You might see a cowhide stair runner made from either synthetic or genuine material that is thick and durable enough to withstand this use. A real cowhide would require more care to prevent cracking if used as a stair runner, however.
A cow print runner rug can be used in the kitchen, hallway, or anywhere else you need a runner. You can choose from a wide range of both natural and dyed colors, which makes it easy to pick something that will go with your existing decor.
Any faux cowhide rug runner can be used throughout your home if you care for it properly. You might even be able to find some made from indoor/outdoor materials, which would be durable enough to use in a high-traffic zone like the entryway.
A Closer Look At Cowhide Rug Runners
As we mentioned earlier, most of today's cowhide rug runners are synthetic. However, 100% cowhide options like those we feature here are just as detailed and carefully crafted. If you'd prefer a synthetic alternative for the sake of fewer care requirements, consider researching other materials.
While real cowhide does require more care, any rug will need to be cleaned regularly regardless of what material it's made from. Read the manufacturer's cleaning instructions carefully before putting down your new rug.
