Numerous Design Choices

When it comes to designing your carpet stair runner, your possibilities are almost endless. Between carpet pile, material, color, and pattern, you also have a wide choice of hardwood styles to choose from. Whether you decide to refinish your existing hardwood stairs or have hardwood added for the first time, you can choose light or dark stains and either a matte, semi-gloss, or high-gloss finish to complete the look you desire.

Extra Protection

For stairs with an existing hardwood surface, a carpet stair runner will help protect the wood underneath and preserve its longevity. Stair runners will also help reduce wear on the hardwood’s finish and decrease the frequency of resurfacing and staining, which can be a costly and time-intensive process for staircases.

Added Safety

Another great benefit of carpet stair runners is the added safety they provide. Say goodbye to slippery socks and scrambling paws! Like fully carpeted stairs, stair runners will help provide extra traction underfoot for people and pets alike. They are particularly helpful for providing a safe surface in homes with children or elderly residents.

Easy Maintenance

Like fully carpeted stairs, a staircase with a stair runner is easy to maintain with regular vacuuming on the carpet and a quick wipe with a dust mop on the hardwood edges. This will prevent dirt and debris from building up and help keep your stairs looking clean and sharp for years to come. When the time comes to replace your stair runner, know that it’s quick and easy for Floor Coverings International West Metro Atlanta to switch it out with a new one.
