Adding a stair runner to your home adds a touch of class and it can also add a safety factor. Hardwood stairs can be slick and easier to slip on than a stair runner. Stair runners can be any type of carpet or pattern. They can be elegant or simple. They can make a statement or just be a practical addition to your home. The entrance to your home is the first impression people will have of it when they come inside. Adding a hall runner or stair runner will enhance the appearance of your home.
A stair runner is typically more decorative than standard carpet and is woven and intended for stair use. Runners are typically woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers. Each fiber comes in a variety of styles and prices.
Wool or synthetic?
Either fiber can be said to be better than the other in certain ways. They may differ in appearance and wear differently. At Coventry, we provide customers with all of the information necessary regarding these differences and will help you make the right choice for your home.
Stair runner installation process:
It is typically installed over a dense carpet pad with small hidden staples. This keeps the carpet from moving. Having your stair runner properly installed is essential for it to perform well and last for a long time. Incorrect installation can result in a safety risk and reduce the life of the runner. Coventry flooring deals with all types of staircases and hallways every day. It is what we do and why we have a lifetime installation guarantee.
