Pre-Made Stair Runner
Pre-made stair runners are exactly what they sound like – carpet runners which are purposefully designed to fit on stairs. A benefit to buying pre-made is that the time between finding and fitting your stair runner is greatly reduced when compared to selecting a carpet to be custom made and fitted to your stairs. A drawback to buying pre-made, however, is that they can sometimes be more expensive than going custom-made.
Custom-Made Stair Runner
Custom-made stair runners are often cheaper than buying pre-made options. As stair runners can be made out of most types of carpet, it can often be cheaper to buy a discounted carpet remnant and have this made into a custom runner for your stairs. You don’t need to find a long strip to cover your stairs, as custom stair runners are made up of sections that cover each of your steps individually.
Carpeting Stair Treads
Depending on the style that you’re aiming to achieve with your stair runners, you may want to consider runners that cover the treads of the stairs only. The tread is the top part of the stairs that you step on. Leaving the riser of the stair exposed creates a striking look to your stairs that may be better suited to contemporary homes. One benefit of this option is that it will likely cost less and be fitted quicker, as you’ll be using half the amount of carpet. Just remember that this look may not be suitable for all homes.
Classic Waterfall Finish On All Stair Runners
We offer waterfall-style stair runner fitting as standard. The carpet is tacked down at the base of each step, allowing the carpet to flow seamlessly down, without revealing the specific outline of each step.
Stair Runner Width
Whilst pre-made stair runners are manufactured in a range of standard widths, custom-made stair runners can be designed to any width that you desire. Regardless of the route that you’re taking, the width of the stair runner that you opt for will be dependent on the width of your staircase. Too narrow and you’ll feel unsure on your feet, too wide and you’ll lose the classy appeal that having a stair runner gives you in the first place.
Although there’s certainly leeway depending on your own taste, there are recommended widths for stair runners depending on the width of your staircase. For example, stairs of approximately 3 feet wide are best suited to a 27-inch runner, whereas wider stairs between 4 and 5 feet can be complemented with a 32 or 33-inch stair runner.
Our estimators can advise you on the width of stair runner that is best suited for your stair case. They can also help you to choose the right edging for your stair runner – choose from tape binding, leather binding, suede and standard binding in hundreds of colours.
