Why choosing the right carpet for your staircase is important.

If you have small children, elderly people, health problems or are simply concerned about the safety of your staircase, we recommend covering your hard surface staircase with an appropriate carpeting or carpet runner to make it less slippery.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There are a few points to consider when choosing the appropriate carpet for stairs – durability, quality of the carpet, padding, and soil resistance. We suggest picking a carpet with a low pile, be it twisted or cut pile style of carpet. Looped Berber style can work well too if you are not concerned about your pets’ claws catching in the carpet loops. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Proper installation of the carpet is another essential aspect of staircase carpet installation. Berber carpet should be installed lengthwise, to avoid what’s called the “smiling effect” of the carpet – seeing between the rows of fibers when you bend the carpet. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Choose between two methods of installation – waterfall or French cap. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And as far as colors – picking darker, blended colors will help you hide the soil and stains of the high traffic.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That’s a lot of information and if you need help making the right choice for your home, our professional Flooring Consultants can help you find the perfect solution for your home and budget.⁠⠀
