I’m very proud to show off our 90s sitcom stairs, as we affectionately call them. Today on the blog I’m sharing my staircase redesign process and all my tips for installing kitchen drains!

How To Install Carpet Runners For Stairs?

I actually had a great idea to paint the stairs. I wanted the color of the carpet to stand out against the white and I immediately regretted it after the first coat. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong, but something was wrong.

I had to make a decision – redo the stairs with paint or try another color. I didn’t want to waste any more time (or paint) so I did what I thought was best – start over! This meant demoing the stairs and rebuilding them to match the existing flooring. Best choice ever!

Although it was a little scary to do this project twice, I am very happy with my final decision. Now comes my favorite part: installing the stair railing!

This plan is quite easy once you get the hang of it, but it can take some time to make sure everything is lined up correctly. In the end I don’t even think about the time I spent on it, how wonderful it is in our house!

The hardest part of this project is choosing the runner! What I got was an amazing neutral color, but with a complex pattern that catches the eye.

While there is very little prep work for this project, it’s still important to take the time to get it right. This way, you can ensure that your stairs will look perfect for years to come. Don’t skip the preparation!

No DIY project should start without a good cleaning – your stairs are no different! Carpet tape is required at every step, so remove all dust and dirt first and keep it intact. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

It only takes a few simple measurements to make the spacers. Spacers make it easier, always aligning the straight stair handrail perfectly with the step!

Measure the length of your chosen staircase and hallway. The length difference is how big you want to make it so there are no gaps.

Now that the prep work is done, the installation process can begin! Every staircase will have the same four-step installation process: carpet tape, carpet pad, carpet tape, stair rail.

I like to use masking tape between the rug and the runner to make sure nothing moves. With five boys running up and down, I can attest that this method works!

I recommend starting each step by first cutting out all the pieces of carpet. Once the cushion is cut, begin attaching it to the stairs.

Now it’s time to attach the ladder clip! I like to start at the top of the stairs to get a nice clean edge and apply tape to each step for extra support.

Start by sewing the runner directly below the mark on the back of the fixture. Then, pull the runner tight and add a few staples to the base of the mirror.

Now you go to the next step and the carpet pad. Place supports on each side of the tread and add more tape to the top of the pad. Press tightly and sew again below the mark.

Repeat this process until you reach the end of the first hallway. You will likely need another executor to complete this project.

When you reach the bottom of the stairs, cut off the excess carpet. Before sewing the last piece of carpet to the bottom footboard, carefully take a lighter to blow out all the threads. I know it might sound scary, but it’s the perfect way to complete your stair rug.

For an added touch, I added stair bars on each step. They bring out those warm tones that I love! I’m possessed

I can’t believe how amazing our stairs look now that everything is done! I truly feel like a piece of my heart is attached to this part of our home.

Add a touch of beauty, texture and color to your home’s interior staircase by installing a treadmill. A narrow strip of carpet is laid over the rug and then secured to each runner with non-stick strips nailed to it. The thin, dense cushion helps soothe and cushion the foot, but also prevents premature wear and tear on the runner. Don’t use standard foam pads; It is too soft to provide the necessary support.

Installing a handrail on a straight staircase is a relatively easy project, even for the novice DIYer. Stairs that turn corners are more difficult, but still possible with our expert instructions.

The stairs are priced with a linear riser and are available in two widths: 27 inches and 32 inches. They are made from synthetic fibers, wool or a mixture of both. Visit a rug store to see samples of available patterns and colors.

Tip: When using the waterfall method, cut 7 cm from the corners of the cushion where it surrounds the nose. This helps hide the block.

In our colonial-style home, we have a grand staircase that leads directly to our front door. It’s the first thing you see when you enter the house, a big fire, and it needs some repairs… another time.

When we entered our little workshop, the stairs were dirty. And I think it’s dirty. It smelled like cats… well, lots of cats. And it had a thick, off-white plush rug that showed every stain and dirt.

We quickly took it apart and my husband replaced the stair treads, cleaned the treads, and added trim pieces around each post base to make it more custom. We ended up with a woven rug that was a beautiful white, black, and gray that hid dog hair, dirt, and stains well. It has served its purpose for many years and has created a no-slip zone for my young children and older dogs.

It was great and a significant improvement, but it ended up being one of those 95% type projects. We never seal the edges of stairs, we never remove paint spills from stained stairs, and we don’t properly hide nails in paneling. It was great, but it was incomplete.

Then, over time, this horizontal top started pulling and pulling apart as my kids ran down the stairs and many people pulled it forward. Eventually, one of the stairs had a huge crack and many others started to show signs of it as well.

I looked at the unfinished edges of the stair treads, day after day, and finally I had enough. It was time to fix those stairs… again… and make them exactly how I wanted them. I purchased an amazing vintage rug and went to town to fix those steps and install my new flooring. The results are beautiful and I am very proud of my work.

If you let it, it can be the most fun part of the whole process! Now is the time to wrap your arms around and start using your muscles to pull up all those dirty old rugs or stairs. Note that you must be careful on the upper stairs as sometimes the staples or nails used come loose and you will fall backwards when pulling (from experience!).

If your staples are stuck, grab a pair of needle-nose pliers so you can easily pry them out of the stairs or steps. If they are embedded in wood, use this amazing clip
