The Guide to Reindeer Hide Rugs



Reindeer hide rugs, like every other type of animal skin rug, are becoming increasingly popular. Some people are choosing them for purely aesthetic reasons, since they stand out from the generic rugs that are available in every furniture store. In some cases, people also choose them for their practical benefits, which have been encouraging people to use fur for thousands of years. In either case, it's important to understand the reindeer rugs and how to use them properly in order to make the most of the hide.

Why Use Reindeer Hide?

An animal skin rug offers a few advantages over alternative materials. Their biggest benefit comes from their impressive powers of insulation. Reindeer hides are developed in nature to keep reindeer warm in an extraordinarily cold and hostile environment, so it can certainly manage to keep residents warm inside a modern home. When treated well, they can stay in excellent condition for many years, so they're also popular with people who want to decorate their house once and never again worry about replacing anything.

Visually, they can help to counteract the artificial and industrial look that many modern homes have. Each hide is unique, so they stand out from the mass-produced sets of matching items that fill most homes. They're also the most natural sort of rug that it is possible to produce, so they can provide even more contrast with artificial furniture. That contrast can be valuable on its own, but the natural look can also add a great deal of comfort to a home because most people are more comfortable around natural materials than artificial ones at an instinctive level.

Decorative Uses

The vast majority of people who buy a reindeer hide rug do so for decorative reasons. There are a few different ways to use one in the home, and it's worth considering all of the options.

The most basic technique is simply laying it on the floor. Many people put them in the center of a room, but that isn't always the best choice. Excessive foot traffic can wear down the rug, and a central position will make it lose some visual potential. Instead, put it in a snug corner where people can see it even as they walk past, but it won't suffer much wear and tear.

Hanging the rug from a wall is another option. That prevents almost all wear and tear, and it makes sure that people can see it easily. This works best if it hangs from a large, bare wall, since it will clash with most other wall decorations.

Practical Uses

For practical purposes, it's best to put the rug in a place where it will receive light foot traffic from people in bare feet. It's best not to clean them very often, so it should stay away from doors and other sources of dirt. Placing one near a bed is often a good choice.

Cat owners should keep their pets in mind when placing the rug. Cats love to sleep on fur, but they can also damage it with their claws. When possible, try to keep the rug in a place that they don't spend much time in order to minimize the temptation.
