Installing a stair carpet runner can be a great way to add style and safety to your home’s staircase. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you with the process, brought to you by the experts at Medina Flooring Contractors:
- Measure your stairs: Measure the length and width of each step to determine how much carpet runner you’ll need.
- Choose your carpet runner: There are many options available, including wool, nylon, and synthetic blends. Choose a carpet runner that fits your style and budget.
- Remove old carpeting: If your stairs already have carpeting, remove it before installing the new carpet runner. You may also need to remove any adhesive or staples that are left behind.
- Cut the carpet runner: Cut the carpet runner to fit the length of each step, leaving a little extra for the edges.
- Secure the carpet runner: Use a staple gun to secure the carpet runner to the stairs. Start at the bottom of the stairs and work your way up.
- Trim the edges: Once the carpet runner is secured in place, use a carpet knife to trim the edges.
- Install stair rods: Stair rods are optional, but can add a decorative touch and help keep the carpet runner in place. Install them at the base of each step.
