The primary reason people have a staircase runner placed is safety. Wood or tile stairs can become slippery, especially for children, pets, and those with mobility issues.
Adding a runner reduces this possibility by providing a non-slip surface. Also, carpeting absorbs noise, so a runner will make staircase traffic quieter.
Finally, a stair runner provides aesthetic benefits as well as safety ones. But you must be sure to choose the right runner for your home’s décor. Don’t worry, that’s where we at Classic Carpet & Rug come in!
