New Idea For Walls – Use An Area Rug

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

If you have an unsightly spot on your wall or an object that you want to cover, one way to do so is to use woven area rugs. Woven varieties are lighter than most other types of rugs and are easier to hang too. You can find a variety of woven area rugs that are perfect to hang on the walls.

You can hang woven area rugs in a number of different ways. The best way to use them is to hang them from a curtain pole. Get a decorative curtain pole and some muslin material and affix the material to the end of the rug. Then loop the material around the pole to form a knot in the pole. Make sure that the pole extends out to where you want it to be so that the rug can naturally cover the offensive object on the wall. This is a great way to cover objects that are no longer in use, or those that are still used but are unsightly.

A repainting job might have crossed your mind. This is a good solution to ugly walls. The thing is, not all of us can afford a total wall make-over or just plainly can’t. For tenants who don’t have the exclusive rights to the property, painting the wall is not that feasible. What if the owner disagrees? What if she won’t pay for it? Then never mind. Woven area rugs can improve the look of the wall while complementing the rest of the room. Now that’s even better.

Other problem areas on the wall may include a patched area that looks obvious. Since woven area rugs are much larger than picture frames, they can cover larger areas. While it is ideal to fix the drywall and repaint the entire room, this may not be economically feasible. Also, if you are renting, this will not only not be feasible but foolish as you do not want to pay to repair the property for someone else. By putting up a woven area rug to cover the large mishap in the wall, you can solve the problem without spending any of your own money repairing property that does not belong to you.

Covering stains or patches on the wall is not the only job an area rug can do for the wall. If you don’t like the wall at all even if it’s shining clean and new but can’t change it, hang a woven area rug and see the difference. When your lease is up, you can easily pack your rug and leave. Furthermore, if you want a change from the usual wall hanging, you can use the area rug in its original place – on the floor.

You can find woven area rugs in a number of different places, including online venues. You can find them in all sizes as well as colors and prices. Those that are made from natural fibers tend to be more costly than those made from synthetics, with those that are hand woven being the most costly of all. The type of woven area rugs you choose will depend on your budget as well as the decor of your home.

Keep up with current trends in rug decorating and enhance your home with braided round rugs.
