Carpet on walls

Deciding to fix a Carpet on walls can radically transform the look of a room, giving it a unique touch provided by a special mix of warmth and originality.

In itself, the carpet is a powerful decorative element that can be considered a work of art in its own right. And when placed on the wall, it immediately captures attention and gives a new identity to the space. However, the real question is: how do you choose the right pattern and what should you pay attention to when placing a carpet on walls?

Carpet on walls : what effects are achieved by placing a textile on the wall?

A Carpet on walls  is not just a simple ornament: it is a style statement, a choice deliberately made to add colour and vibrancy to the home or commercial space. On the wall, the texture and patterns of the individual piece – no matter whether it is a rich oriental tapestry or a contemporary fabric – stand out and give depth to the whole, creating a focal point that draws the eye and arouses interest.

In particular, using a carpet to cover an entire wall of the room can also be an ingenious solution to give the room a precise identity. Depending on the design and size of the artefact, the space may appear warmer, more cosy or more energetic. In any case, choosing to fix a Carpet on walls is a great way to personalise the interior design of the home and to achieve a unique result.

When deciding to furnish with wall-to-wall carpets, it should be borne in mind that the softness of the fabric, the play of colours in the weave and the variety of patterns are all elements that help to break up the monotony of monochrome walls.

In large rooms furnished with furniture and accessories with minimal lines, wall-to-wall carpets can be used to create a strong contrast and to add an element that stands out in the overall scheme. A large carpet placed on the wall is functional not only to introduce a touch of colour and to warm up the space, but also because it performs an important soundproofing function.

What precautions should be taken if a carpet is to be placed on the wall?

We have already seen how hanging a Carpet on walls can radically transform the appearance of different rooms in the home. If you decide to use wall-mounted artefacts, you need to pay a little attention and take a few precautions in order to achieve an optimal result.

First of all, it is essential to fix the individual piece securely and stably, using appropriate supports and materials specifically for this type of operation. A good fixing system will not only keep the carpet in place, but also protect the wall and the artefact itself from possible damage due to gravity and the passage of time.

Before fixing, it is essential to assess that the weight and thickness of the carpet is such that it can be placed on the wall. Heavy carpets are generally not recommended for wall mounting because they can be damaged more easily. In any case, if you choose a very large or very heavy piece. it is a must to have sturdy supports and it is necessary to use fixing techniques that guarantee stability.

Any other tips? In order to achieve a good result, it is also necessary to ensure that the weight of the carpet is evenly distributed across the entire support surface. This control prevents the piece from becoming deformed or damaged over time. An effective option to achieve an even fixing is to use a support bar mounted on the wall with hooks or clips, so that the weight of the carpet can be distributed without concentrating it in one place.

Carpet on walls : which is the most suitable?

To find out which is the right carpet to use to decorate a wall, one must carefully consider the type of weaving  and the specific characteristics of the product.

Generally speaking, woven carpets are the first option to evaluate. Due to the fact that they are often lighter and thinner than knotted or tufted carpets, they prove ideal for hanging. These considerations apply to both small and large-format products: all models can be placed on the wall quite easily and without overburdening the wall structure.

Those who prefer knotted carpets can benefit from greater strength and durability and, in general, a more original and more complex design. For this type of carpet, it is essential to consider the thickness and quality of the fibres, which determines the weight. As a general rule, small knotted pieces are to be preferred, as they can easily replace paintings and even establish themselves as the most precious works of art kept in the home.

One last remark before concluding. When you are choosing the carpet to put on your walls, size matters. From this point of view, it must be remembered that small and medium-sized carpets are ideal for smaller spaces or to add a decorative accent in specific areas, while large-format items can become the focal point of a spacious room.
