What is a Stair Runner?

A stair runner refers to a strip of carpet which runs down the center of a staircase,leaving stair exposed on either side of the runner. We offer high-quality, durable carpet options that bring practical and aesthetic benefits to your home or business.

How do I Choose a Stair Runner?

When deciding which stair runner to purchase, there are a few factors to consider. Once you choose the  area you’ll put your rug, you’ll want to decide if you want a solid-color or patterned style. Next, pick a carpet material which suits your needs. Choose from 100% wool, wool blend, nylon, jute, sisal and more. Finally, choose an installation method that matches your desired aesthetic. Browse our photo gallery for stair runner ideas and design inspiration.

At the Carpet Workroom, we have all of your carpeting needs covered. Once the perfect stair runner is chosen, we offer expert carpet installation services. Our team of experienced professionals also offers rug repairs, alternations and cleaning services.

How do I start my custom rug project?

The best way to submit your inquiry is by filling out our “Start the Process Online” form found on our Out of Region page.

What is your timeline?

As soon as a 60% deposit is received and an order placed for in-stock stair runner material, we schedule installations 4-6 weeks out. If material is non-stocking, it may take longer depending on the timeline.

What materials are best for homes with pets?

If you have pets in the home, we recommend flat-weave wool, cut pile, and loop pile carpet styles.
