Identify Pattern Repeat
With all rugs laid side-by-side, next identify where the pattern repeat matches up on each rug. To do this, you may need to rotate each rug several times.
Match Up Repeats
Once the proper spot of each rug pattern's repeat is identified, lay out all rugs together. Confirm the pattern repeat seamlessly runs from one end of the area rug to the other.
Tape Rugs From Side to Side
With the help of a friend, flip carpets over carefully to ensure they say in position so that the pattern repeat matches up. Add duct tape across the back of each rug horizontally.
