If you have a rug anywhere in your home, chances are you have experienced the dreaded curling rug corner. Not only do they look awful, they are also a tripping hazard. Here’s how to easily fix curling rug corners.
We have layered rugs in our dining room and for some reason one corner has curled… and it drives me crazy!
I did a lot of research into products that were supposed to fix this issue, however, many reviews stated that the products either a.) didn’t hold up over time or b.) elevated the rug so much, it simply created another tripping hazard. So… I turned to my Instagram and Facebook communities and asked for advice. And guess what? They totally came through for me!

How to Fix Curling Rug Corners
Start by lifting up the rug where you are noticing the curl, and spray the underside of the rug with water. Give it a good spray, making sure the curl is well covered with water.
If the rug is lying on a wood floor, make sure to put a towel underneath the rug corner to avoid getting water on the flooring. Then set a heavy object on top of the corner, making sure the curled part is completely weighted down.
Leave it this way for 24 hours as this allows the rug to dry into its new (flat) shape.
Once the time is up, simply remove the heavy object and your rug should be lying flat again.
I actually tried this 3 months ago and waited to share until I could see if the results lasted over time. One of my rug corners is still flat, however the jute rug is starting to curl again, so I may need to redo the process for that one.
Pretty easy process to get your rugs back in shape, right?
