Have you ever thought of hanging a shag rug on your wall? Shag rugs are reminiscent of the 1960’s and have made a huge comeback in recent years. The high pile and soft texture of shag rugs has always made them very appealing for a modern and comfortable touch. Shag rugs can be used for more than just walking on, they make great wall hangings, especially for a large room with a lot of wall space.
A shag rug can be used to compliment the color scheme of any room in a home. If you’re going to use a shag rug for decoration, find one that is multi-colored or specific for the look you’re going for. For example, if the room is very bright and simple, a burnt-orange or deep-blue shag rug can make a great centerpiece to add personality to the room. You can also add enlarged photos to the shag rug wall-hanging, using the rug as a backdrop.
To hang a shag rug, consider using wall hooks that simply attach to your wall with an anchor system. Depending on how large the shag rug is, you may want to use anywhere from 6 to 12 hooks to ensure the rug lays flat and is securely held in place. Using hooks to hang the rug is the best approach because it leaves you with the option of using the rug on a floor in the future. A hanging shag rug won’t require much maintenance and will last much longer than if it was used on the floor.
