Custom stair runners revamp an ordinary staircase into a beautiful entryway. Imagine having an elegant stairway to come home to every day. You will be delighted about how your home looks with your new stair runner. Stair runners reduce noise made by people going up and down the stairs and protect the stairs from wear. They are a safety feature as stairs can be slippery and the carpet provides a safe place to walk on the stairs. e
Stair Runner Width
A stair runner is carpet that doesn’t cover the entire width of the staircase. They are installed over hardwood or tile. Carpet runners come in all colors and patterns and they are cut to the width needed for your stairs. Since not every stair width is the same our professional installers can determine the correct width of your runner to match the size of your stairs.
Type of Pattern
Patterned runners are gorgeous, and come in all types of colors and designs. Floral designs or abstracts are a good choice of pattern for stairs.
Small pattern size works well on a stair runner. Larger patterns can be look uneven as the carpet bends over individual stairs. Smaller patterns showcase the design of each tread and riser.
Wool or synthetic fiber?
A stair runner is usually more decorative than standard carpet and is woven for stair use. Stair runners can be wool or synthetic pile fibers. The fibers come in a variety of styles and prices.
Wool and synthetic both work well and one can be said to be better than the other in different ways. The experts at Coventry will provide you with all of the information needed regarding the differences and help you make the right choice for your home.
Stair runner installation:
The carpet is installed over a dense carpet pad with small hidden staples. This keeps the carpeting from moving. A properly installed stair runner is critical for it to perform well and last for a long time. At Coventry we have installed hundreds of stair runners on all types of staircases and we guarantee out work for the life of the carpeting.
Maintaining your stair runner:
- Vacuum regularly.
- Remove shoes when entering the home.
- Keep the floors near the stairs clean.
- Deep clean yearly.
Check carpet installation reviews to find a quality company
There are many companies that do stair runner installation and you want to find ones that have great reviews and guarantee their installation.
