Carpeting for staircases is important because it can help to prevent accidents and provide a level of comfort. It's also an excellent way to add some style and color to your home while still being practical. There are a few things that you should consider when selecting carpet for your staircase. Check out this blog post if you want more information on how to do just that!

Consider the style of the staircase and house

What style of carpet do you want? Do you have a specific color pallet in mind for your home? You may be looking to match the carpet to something else, like other furniture or art. We recommend considering all aspects of what kind of look and feel you're going for before choosing carpeting.

The amount of traffic on the staircase will also affect which type is best. If it's a high traffic area over hardwood, we would suggest using stair runners as they are more durable than regular carpets.

Type of carpet

Is it stain-resistant, easy to clean, or has a pattern that will easily show dirt? These are some of the most important questions you'll need to ask both yourself and your local carpeting expert.

After considering all the aspects of what type of look and feel you want, it's time to choose which kind of carpet is best for your home. You may have a stain-resistant or easy-to-clean preference, as well as a pattern that does not show dirt easily.

Stain resistance

If you live in a home with children or pets, we recommend selecting a carpet style built for that purpose because they're more durable than regular carpets in those circumstances. You'd be surprised how quickly little ones and our furry friends may wear down a more delicate form of carpeting.

Think about how often people will be walking on it

If you have a large home with many rooms and guests, then it's worth considering carpeting that can handle the traffic. If your staircase is open to other areas of the house, think about how visible any pattern would be in those spaces as well.
