Eventually, I knew we would need a carpet runner. My kids run around in socks all the time and I have to think of my golden retriever, Rosie. Those bare stairs were just too slippery.
I ended up choosing a synthetic sisal-look runner and couldn't be happier!...
This carpet is from Masland Carpets and I chose their Sisaltex line in the color Indochine. I am not being compensated in any way to mention them, in case you were wondering.
This is definitely the look I wanted for the stairs.
And it feels so nice on our feet!
We were able to choose the width we wanted and they cut the carpet to our specifications. Our stairs are 41 inches wide (above the landing) and 39 1/2 (below the landing)...I never realized that until we measured for the carpet...weird. Anyway, we had the carpet cut at 31 inches wide.
My husband isn't sure if he wants the runner because he (the previous carpet lover) got used to the look of the wood floor up here. We'll keep it up here for now though.
I am happy with the subtle color and the way it goes with our recently painted foyer. (Benjamin Moore White Sand). The rug is also golden retriever color which is a plus! We have to decorate around the dog in our house!
And it's neutral enough to work with the existing foyer rug...or something else if I decide to change it!
If you have stairs, do you have a runner on them?
