Generally a rug is kept on the floor to add aesthetic appeal or to protect a floor’s material. As seen in this picture, an alternative use of a rug can be to decorate a wall. Rugs are generally intended for walking on, but covering a wall with fabric or vinyl on a wall is a great way to improve its aesthetic appeal.
FABRIC ON A WALL
Due to the insulating effect it can create, stretching fabric can convey the impression of comfort and intimacy. Generally, the typical solution for lining a wall with fabric is to stretch the fabric flat on the wall, with it’s pattern is clearly visible. When applied over a layer of interlining, fabric is warm to the touch and provides a level of acoustic comfort through insulation. The interlining can also absorb any irregularities in the wall.
Fabric mounting is usually suggested for use in the bedroom, but can be used in any room in which a sense of enclosure is desired. Fabric is not recommended for constantly frequented areas such as the living room, or areas with smoke and grease such as the kitchen.
RUG ON A WALL
Hanging a carpet on a wall can enhance the ambiance of a room through the warm feel of fabric. This carpet will reflect shades of light, as well as allow for a natural, acoustic comfort, effectively soundproofing the room. Carpets today are so beautifully crafted that they are works of art in of themselves. Ensuring that your rug stands out on the wall can be achieved with the use of directional spotlights. For example. Rugs that imitate pebbles, stones, sand, or earth are some great motifs for wall hanging rugs.
There are many types of vinyl that imitate leather and other animal skins such as crocodile, cow, snake, and elephant. These imitation animal skin rugs can be used to cover walls in an original way.. These imitations will bring relief to your walls. They are very practical and easily cleaned with a sponge and some liquid soap. You should only cover one or two walls in your room, to maintain aesthetic sensibility, or use vinyl to make certain objects in your room stand out. For example, cover only your fireplace with an imitation leather to match your sofa.
