Stair runners add class and beauty upon entering a home. Carpet stair runners transform an ordinary staircase into an elegant entry way into your home. They are often times referred to as works of art. and make a statement about the home. Stair runners reduce noise made by people going up and down the stairs, and they add a decorative look to a stairway. A runner also protects both treads and risers from wear and tear.
Wool or synthetic fiber?
A stair runner is usually more decorative than standard carpet and is woven for stair use. Stair runners are typically woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers. The fiber comes in a variety of styles and prices.
Either fiber is great and can be said to be better than the other in different ways. With a runner, you don’t typically want to go too light or too dark. Dark show lint, while light-colored carpeting shows dirt and scuffs. IN most cases a medium tone is the best option.
