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.

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.

Main Street Oriental Rugs:

Troy,

Thank you for the question. We are sorry, but we do not know of anyone we could recommend in Nevada to help hang your rug. If your rug does not already have a sleeve, that is something we could do for you — you would simply need to ship your rug to us and we would ship it back to you in 2-3 weeks. Let us know if we can be of any service :)

I live in Reno Nevada. Is there someone near me that you could recommend to hang my heavy silk rug with the sleeve.
Thanks Troy

Dear Sir/Madam: I have a 6’ x 9’ silk rug that I would like you to attach a sleeve so that I might hang it on the wall. Please provide me with instructions for shipping.
Thank you,
