The staircase is not only a focal point in a home; it is also a high-traffic area with up and down movement daily. Staircases are a very noticeable space that requires style and sturdy flooring material. There are several aspects you should take into account when installing floor covering on stairs:
Therefore, safety, durability, ease of maintenance and style should be prioritized when installing flooring on a staircase.
Consequently, hardwood stairs can be slippery and noisier than carpet. However, there is a way to have the best of both worlds! You can use a carpet runner to make hardwood stairs slip-resistant and safer. A carpet runner is a small section of carpet that goes on top of your hardwood stairs. It covers most of the steps but shows the hardwood on either side. Carpet runners are bound on the sides to complete a finished look. It is intended to implement traction and will also deaden some noise of a hardwood floor. Most carpet in our showroom can be made into a custom carpet runner, making it easy to complement your hardwood staircase.
