Tape Seams

Now that the rugs are held together side-by-side, firmly add duct tape along the seams where each rug meets.

Check for Inconsistencies

It's likely that there will be a few areas in which the pattern repeat is slightly off. Identify any inconsistencies before deciding on final placement of the rug; assign inconsistent spots to inconspicuous areas such as under a sofa or against a wall.

Walk on Seams

With the custom area rug in place, walk back and forth along the seams several times to push fibers down, helping to create more of a seamless look.
