Perhaps you have hardwood, painted or tiled stairs, and would like to add a carpet runner for safety, comfort or style. A staircase featuring a runner creates a beautiful focal point in your home.
When considering a runner, a common question is how wide it should be. This will depend on the width of your stairs. For stairs that are approximately 3' wide, WE would suggest a 27" runner width. This width allows for good coverage so that you don't feel like you are walking on a narrow strip, and is not too wide to overpower the stairs.
For wider stairs of about 4' or 5', a 32" or 33" runner is a good option, as it will leave a nice amount of floor showing on either side, and will not be diminished by the size of the stairs. The runner can be cut to your exact specifications, and finished on the sides by binding the edges in a matching yarn.
Having a runner custom-made can often be less expensive than purchasing a pre-made runner. It does not require a large amount of carpet to cover a staircase, so you may even be able to purchase a discounted remnant and have it made to your size.
