Types of Rugs

  • Area Rugs
  • Accent Rugs
  • Runner Rugs

Area Rugs are larger rugs typically used as a centerpiece in living rooms, bedrooms, dining areas, hallways, and more. They provide color and texture to the space while also protecting floors from wear and tear. Accent rugs are smaller in size than area rugs but still large enough to make an impact on their own. They usually feature intricate patterns and bold colors which make them perfect for adding pops of color around the house. Runners are narrow rugs that can be used along hallways or staircases. They usually feature geometrical patterns and bright colors which add character to these often bare spaces in your house.

Our Animal Hide Rugs:

Our high-quality animal skins include:

Animal hide rugs can be the perfect addition to any home, bringing texture and warmth that cannot be replicated with synthetic materials. In particular, animal hides are known for providing a unique aesthetic value. Not only do animal rug textures add visual interest to any room, they are also very durable and stand up well to high-traffic areas or frequent spills.

Aside from their decorative appeal, animal hide rugs have soundproofing qualities that can help reduce noise in busy living spaces and offer additional insulation during cold weather months. Additionally, animal rugs are relatively low maintenance and easy to clean; a simple vacuum or occasional spot cleaning is all it takes to keep your animal hide rug looking great in the long term. Whatever style you're interested in, an animal hide rug can provide the perfect accompaniment to any space!

Our Wool Textile Rugs:

Investing in wool rugs for your home is a smart decision as wool has many exceptional qualities. Wool is an extremely durable fiber making wool rugs resilient and long-lasting through time. These wool textiles also add a sense of natural comfort to your living space due to their warm and soft texture, while still maintaining their reliable strength.

Furthermore, wool material absorbs moisture which guarantees the rug will last even with spillages or high-traffic areas; because wool possesses fire retardant characteristics it is capable of preserving its condition even in unpredictable circumstances. Finally, wool textiles are stylish as they come in a variety of patterns, colors, weaves, and textures, providing you with a large selection to choose from that compliments any room’s decor.

Area Rugs 

Area rugs are large pieces that can be used to cover an entire room or section of a room. They come in various sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. Area rugs made by Hat Creek Interiors are crafted with textile materials such as wool or cotton.

For those who prefer something unique and luxurious, there is also a selection of animal hide area rugs made from cowhide or deer hide. The benefits of these types of area rugs include increased warmth and soundproofing. They also give an instant upgrade to any space without having to commit too much effort to redesign a room. Area rugs look great in living rooms and bedrooms as well as in hallways that lead from one room to another. 

Accent Rugs 

Accent rugs are smaller than area rugs but still provide enough coverage for a small space like an entryway or hallway. Just like area rugs, accent rugs come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, textures, and colors that match any home décor style perfectly. Accent rugs from Hat Creek Interiors range from classic designs like Navajo prints to vibrant colors that pop against lighter shades on walls or furniture pieces.

These types of accent carpets have the same benefits as area carpets – increased warmth and soundproofing – but they also make it easier to add more color to your home without going overboard with paint or wallpaper designs. Accent carpets look great in entryways because they set the tone for visitors before they even enter the home itself.


Runners are generally used in hallways or staircases because they provide coverage without taking up too much space. Runners tend to be longer than other types of carpets but not as wide so that they can easily fit along narrow paths such as hallways and stairs without becoming too cumbersome when walking around them.

Like other carpets offered by Hat Creek Interior Designers, runners come in all sorts of styles ranging from traditional Navajo prints to bright hues that will add interest even in long hallways. Runner carpets offer many benefits including added traction on staircases so that slipping is less likely to occur and cushioning if someone falls down them accidentally. They also help reduce noise between floors which is especially beneficial if you live with multiple people under one roof.  

How Are They Made?

At Hat Creek Interiors, we offer two types of rugs made with different materials – textile and animal hides such as cowhide or sheepskin. Textile rugs are handwoven using cotton threading that is then stitched onto a backing material such as canvas or jute cloth. Animal hide rugs are handpicked animal hides that have been carefully tanned to bring out their natural beauty and durability.

Our team of experts ensures every single piece is up to our high standards before it is put on our floor to be sold. Hat Creek Interiors sources the highest quality rugs made from luxurious materials. Our rugs last generations, and will become an heirloom pieces that you can pass down to your loved ones.

Benefits & Where To Put Different Rugs In Your Home

No matter which type of Hat Creek Interiors rug you choose, you can be sure it will add instant warmth and comfort to any room in your home! Area rugs look great under coffee tables or near seating areas; accent sizes can go anywhere from entryways, bathrooms, kitchens, and more; while runners look best along hallways or staircases where they provide comfort without taking up too much space.

All of our rugs have been carefully crafted with materials that ensure they will stand up against heavy traffic - so no matter where you decide to place them, they will last for years to come. We’re proud to offer a range of western-inspired rugs in a variety of colors and patterns that are sure to bring out the best in any space.

Caring For Your Rug

It’s important to remember that all our textile area rugs require regular maintenance - vacuuming is recommended weekly for loose dirt particles; spot cleaning when necessary; and washing once a year depending on use (follow manufacturer’s instructions). Animal hide rugs don't need regular vacuuming but occasional brushing may help remove dust particles - if there’s ever an accident involving liquids simply dab the area with a dry cloth until dry - never rub as this may damage the hide fibers.

Adding a beautiful rug doesn't have to be complicated – especially when you shop at Hat Creek Interiors. We offer both textiles and animal hides in multiple sizes so you can find the perfect rug for any room in your house. From area sizes down to runners – adding one (or several!) of our western-inspired pieces is guaranteed to bring instant warmth and comfort into your home while also standing up against heavy traffic over time.
