If you're looking to invest in traditional stair runners, choosing the right style can seem daunting! At Rug Depot, our professional staff can assist with choosing the right materials for your aesthetic. If you're still wondering what type of stair runner to choose, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your stair runners.
If you're planning to add a stair runner to your staircase, take measurements of the stair width before purchasing. This will help you determine the width of your runner. Runners typically do not cover the entire step, providing just enough coverage for comfort and traction while still showcasing the step sides. The right width will allow for good coverage for the step while still showcasing the step.
Pattern Is Key
Traditional Stair Runners are an elegant addition to any home! They come in a variety of styles and patterns, and they fit in with most interior designs. However, make sure that the pattern of your traditional stair runner flows evenly, especially if you have a curved or winding staircase. If this is a concern, you may want to consider a professional installation.
Cushioning: It may seem unnecessary, but cushioning is a staple item for most carpets and stair treads. The best cushioning is thin enough not to raise the height of the carpet, however, it should support the runner.
Decorative Rods: While stair rods used to be a necessary addition to all types of stair runners, they are now considered optional. Stair rods add a touch of elegance and come with a variety of finial choices and in different finishes.
