Hanging Your Rug From Your Wall

Firstly you need to decide which side of the rug will be the top and bottom. No matter how you put up your rug, you need to figure out the rug’s orientation on the wall. For some rugs, it will not matter which side you put up. For others with an irregular pattern, the placement on the wall is very important.

The least intrusive way of hanging your rug to your wall is using velcro it is currently the method preferred by many museums, including The Textile Museum. This method can be used on heavy-weight rugs with success, and without causing damage to the rug.

As much as we love an original print or one-of-a-kind painting, there’s nothing wrong with a little added texture above a couch. Have a rug that doesn’t quite fit where you thought it would, or love your rug so much that footsteps just simply won’t do? Show it off where you hang the most.

Looking for a full-proof way to make the space above your bed the showstopper of your bedroom? Use a hanging rug to create a headboard with a cozy punch of pattern and flair. Play up high ceilings with a oversize style that spans most of the vertical space, or hang a smaller style horizontally for a more compact statement.
