Most stair carpet runners come in either 27” or 32” widths, just enough to give a sufficient border to show the floor underneath, and are made from carpet materials such as wool or synthetic pile fibers. Each material has a different appearance, texture, and price point, so be sure to talk to our flooring experts to determine the best option for your home.

Stair runners are installed over a dense pad with small staples that are hidden in the material. Alternatively, you can also choose to install your runner with stair rods which add a decorative touch to your stairs, but is not as secure as the staple option. Installation, on average, can take anywhere from two to six hours depending on whether you have a single straight staircase or something more complex. Thankfully, we can handle everything from the initial design consultation to the installation and clean-up. We’ll even bring the samples to you!

In addition to providing extra traction, stair carpet runners also come in a variety of designs that most carpets just don’t have. Our Plano and Carrollton, Texas area customers find that they even absorb the sound of foot traffic, making them an excellent choice for stairs that overhang bedrooms and other areas where noise is unwanted. Installing a stair carpet runner will also help to protect the floors underneath from unwanted dirt without fully concealing their beauty. When they are properly installed, they can cushion falls should they occur, without any odd lumping.
