How to hang a tapestry

When you purchase a tapestry, youíll probably want to also get a tapestry rod to hang your tapestry with when it arrives.

Most tapestries have a Ďrod pocketí or tunnel to enable you to hang it using a tapestry rod. Just choose a rod and finials whose style is compatible with the style of your wall tapestry.

This is the simplest way to hang tapestries, and the instructions comes with it, to make it even easier.

Letís have a look at some tips here, on how to prepare and hang your tapestry with a rod.

Tto hang the tapestry, follow the instructions on the tapestry rod set, which will include the associated pieces such as the finials and the mounting brackets.

The great thing about our tapestry rods is that you can adjust the length of the rod which means that you can get the correct length for your tapestry.

To get a great finish, make sure that when the rod is placed on the brackets, that itís perfectly horizontal. A spirit level will help you to check this.

With most tapestries, the rod pocket at the back will be tapered at the ends, so that the bracket, which attaches to the wall, will not be visible, being behind the tapestry. Another great advantage of using rods for tapestries.

And when mounted, the tapestry will hanging be 1-2 inches from the wall, depending on the thickness of the rod and finials used, giving it room for ventilation.

So there you go! Now you can admire your tapestry.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
