Rugs aren't only meant to be walked on, you can also hang a rug on a wall to display its beautiful design, just like you would hang a painting! In this post, we tell you 3 easy ways to hang a rug on your walls.

1 . Rug Sleeves

The simplest way to hang a rug is to have a professional add a sleeve to the back of your rug. This is done by carefully stitching a length of fabric to the underside of the rug, generally wool or cotton canvas is used for this purpose, creating a sleeve that you can slide a metal or wooden rod through. The stitches can not be seen from the front of the rug, giving you a seamless finished look.

When hanging your rug, you can add extra visual interest by choosing a decorative finial and brushed metal rod. We recommend this J. Thomas Legacy Adjustable Rod with finial:

Rug clips are a relatively quick and easy way to hang a rug and you can do it yourself! There are different types of clips to choose from, some hang from a hook, as seen in the image below, and some can be hung on a display stand or mounted bar.
