The Best Places for a Sheepskin Rug

With winter coming up (it’s sooner than you think!), it’s time to start thinking about cozy rug options. While a sheepskin rug may not be as trendy as cowhide, it gives the home a touch of luxury nonetheless – and at a lower price. The sheepskin in versatile; it can be used in virtually any room, looks great tossed onto furniture or layered with other rugs, and even comes in different colors.

Sheepskin rugs are most commonplace on living room and bedroom floors:

But it works in more offbeat and unexpected places too, for extra softness and warmth.

Fling one on a chair, ottoman, or couch:

Put it on the bed rather than under or next to it. Mmm, toasty! Perfect for those long winter nights:

The bathroom is admittedly not the best choice for a sheepskin bath mat, but for oh-so-cozy toes, lay it near the vanity:
