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:
2 . Rug Clips
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.
We recommend these sleek matte black clips:
3. Quilt Hanger
For small or light weight rugs, a quilt hanger is a great option. Simply attach the quilt hanger to your wall and secure the edge of your rug between the two matching pieces.
Whichever option you choose, your room will look absolutely stunning with an Oriental rug on the wall!
