Area Rug On The Wall: A Unique Decoration

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Walls are not exclusively for artworks, photographs or certificates of achievement. A wall in need of improvement is not only answered by a paint job. Believe it or not, an area rug can be placed on the wall for beauty and practical reasons. The former as wall hangings or decors, and the latter as a wall cover for seedy-looking parts. So yes, area rugs too are not just for walking on.

If your home has a two storey entry way with a large wall, this could the ideal space for an area rug to hang. Not only is an area rug able to cover a large amount of space but it will be lighter to hang than a heavy picture frame. It will also look nicer on the wall. This is an easy way to incorporate color into a room without having to pick up a paintbrush.

Even if you live in a more restricted space, hanging an area rug is still acceptable. Don’t think that this decorating technique is only meant for bigger houses. Not true at all. Smaller spaces hence, smaller walls can be adorned by smaller rugs. Smaller though doesn’t imply less quality or second rate. With the assortment of area rugs, even smaller sizes have amazing collections – great shapes, designs, colors, materials. What the bigger rugs have, the smaller ones also do. They just differ in, well, size. Oh yes, and price. So your living in a cuter space has its perks too.

It is highly recommended to select an area rug with design. Comparing it with a plain- looking one, with design sure looks better. If you’re not into complex and elaborate, then opt for a simpler design. There are area rugs especially made as wall hangings, so choosing from that collection will make the task easier for you. But an ordinary area rug with design will work just as well.

There are hanging systems sold in specialty stores used for hanging objects on the wall. If your rug is on the heavy side, you have to secure it more, but locking the top part will do in most cases. The rug will hang effortlessly. If your rug is quite light and thin, a strong tape is already effective. If it doesn’t work and your rug ends up being friends with the floor, just be grateful it’s all fabric and not glass breaking. Change to plan A and use sturdier hanging essentials.

Take advantage of this decorating idea to display your favorite colors or designs. You don’t have to purchase an artwork or an expensive photograph. You don’t even have to hang your portrait if you’re too shy for that. The convenience of decorating an area rug solves the problem and putting it up is so easy too, for all you need is a tape and no drilling is required. Mansion, average house or a space-limited apartment is no big deal. Each can have a suitable area rug with the ideal size. It’s just perfect.
