Four Tips to Choose the Best Stair Runner in Summit, NJ

From adding small details to helping you determine what style of carpet fits your home the best, our experts can give you inspiration on how to get the perfect combination of style and comfort. Before you visit our showroom, however, consider these tips:


  1. Style: Choose a runner that complements your home's overall aesthetic, whether it's traditional, modern, or eclectic.
  2. Material: Select a durable material that can withstand heavy foot traffic and is resistant to stains and fading.
  3. Pattern: Decide on a pattern that enhances the visual appeal of your staircase while maintaining design continuity with the rest of your home.
  4. Size: Measure your staircase carefully to determine the length and width of the runner needed for a proper fit.


Pro Tip: Consider your preferred maintenance requirements before choosing your new stair runner!

Is your new stair runner delicate and prone to damage? Certain types of carpet, like our flat weave carpet, should not be vacuumed with a brush roll (a.k.a. beater bar), while others can't withstand certain footwear, like rubber boots. Our flooring experts can guide you on the best carpeting to choose for your specific home environment.
