Make Your Living Space Unique: How to Hang a Tapestry

Are you sick of looking at your apartment's boring white walls?

Do you wonder if there's a way to spice up your space without having to paint? 

If you need to uplift your living space, you might want to consider hanging up a tapestry. In this article, we'll give you directions on how to hang a tapestry and help you find some unique wall art.  

Pick Your Design

Before you start hanging a tapestry in your home, it's important to find the perfect design. What kind of decorator are you?

Would you rather get a soothing geometric print or a wild mandala print that seems like it's going to fly off the wall? What kinds of colors would go well with your home?

The great thing about tapestries is that you can match them to your walls, your couch, your sheets, or even your plants! Make sure to use a color wheel before you commit to a particular tapestry.

Don't worry. You'll know the right tapestry when you see it. 

Choose Your Wall

There are many ways to hang a tapestry. But first, you have to choose your wall. You could hang your tapestry behind your couch, but you might want to put it where you'll see it more often. 

If you're feeling creative, you can hang your tapestry from the ceiling, or even use it as a room divider. If you realize you don't like it once you've put it up, you can always move it. 

Tapestries also help regulate your temperature during the winter. If your room is too stuffy, open the door and put a tapestry over the entrance to keep out the chill. 

Once you've figured out where you want to put your tapestry, it's time to bring along a few friends for the job. 

Bring a Friend

When it comes to hanging tapestry ideas, we like to keep it simple. Use nails or thumbtacks to fasten your tapestry to the wall. 

If nails aren't your thing or your tapestry is fragile, you can use a poster hanger or even a shadowbox. If you've got fragile, antique tapestry, keep it in a shadowbox that is fade-resistant. 

Make sure you bring a level to ensure that you're putting it up straight. Also, try to measure your wall before you hang up the tapestry to make sure you have enough room. 

Our advice is to bring a friend who can help you make sure your tapestry is level. When you've got a large tapestry, it helps to have someone holding the bottom while you're pinning the top.
