A stair runner can help to elevate a design scheme to the next level. As well as installed for more utilitarian purposes such as padding and safety. While it is easy to acquire a pre-made runner it is also an option to cut down a carpet and bond the edges to use on stairs. Additionally, a fixed rod is a purely decorative embellishment as staples are always used to secure the rug in place. The sky is the limit with options for carpeting, trim, and ornamental hardware.
