Should I install a stair runner?
Stair runners are a great addition because they help buffer sound, provide warmth, cushioning underfoot and reduce slipping. Stair runners can also add a fun design element to your home’s decor. It is recommended to have a professional installer measure your stairs for you because not all stairs are created equal.
Should I hire a professional installer?
Stairs have curves, angles, turns, landings, different heights and widths, so it’s best to avoid mistakes in measuring on your own. There is the possibility of not ordering enough broadloom. It is the installer’s expertise to help you figure out how much material you will need to order of the weave and binding if desired. All installation is done directly onsite creating your one-of-a-kind stair runner.
Which material should I use for my stair runner?
The best weaves or types of flooring to use for stair runners are wool, wool blends, natural and synthetic fibers. That is because they are long lasting and durable fibers.
