As a high-traffic area, it is important that the carpet covering the stairs is strong enough to withstand the levels of activity. When it comes to the best carpet materials, synthetic nylon carpet can be the best choice for safety and durability; Wool is also a good option because its fibers repel stains and dirt (although they are more expensive). Berber rugs, meanwhile, are a sure-fire choice for stairs because they’re made of loops rather than strips.

Stair Runner Ideas

A modern staircase, with a rug, is a good way to transform a plain staircase. “A runner is a great way to freshen up your stairs without breaking the bank,” says Myles Shaw, managing director of Runrug.

Basically, the stair rail is placed in the middle of the stairs, leaving the wood visible on both sides, while in fully carpeted options, all the cords are covered.

“Stairs are often the first thing your guests see when they enter your home, and they can completely set the tone for your interior style,” says Jess Contomichalos, interior stylist at Cormar Carpets. “A carpeted staircase will create a sense of richness, while a runner will add the wow factor.”

Carpet is a great choice for stairs, especially for homes with young children and elderly family members. A hardwood floor can be dangerous if something is spilled or the little ones wander in their socks. Carpet may not prevent falls, but it certainly provides more stability when climbing stairs.

According to Checkatrade, the average cost of carpeting one straight staircase will be between £75 and £100. Meanwhile, the average cost of a carpet fitter is around £120 – £150 per day. If your stairs have many turns, they may cost more.

It is worth noting that the cost will depend on the style you choose. More luxurious rugs, including real fur, will cost more than synthetics. Additional stairs or stairs will also affect the cost.

“We always recommend carpets for stairs and runners with good support,” Julian Downes of Fiber tells House Beautiful UK. “The base layer will do an important job, it takes a significant part of the wear and tear that goes on, and it would be a false economy to choose a good rug just to make things easier with the base layer.”

Carpet runners (strips of decorative carpet that run down the middle of the stairs) are popular on Instagram. Unlike full carpet options, runners aren’t as wide as your steps because they leave room to the side. Usually installed in hardwood or tiled staircases, they are the most popular choice for modern and traditional homes.

“The tiles can be installed on stairs like standard carpet, installed with stairs, or used as stand-alone stairs,” says Jenna Kane of Kersaint Cobb Product Development.
