Inexpensive Option for a Stair Runner

Looking to replace or add a stair runner?

Here's an easy, inexpensive option for a stair runner that looks high-end. I purchased two indoor/outdoor stair runners and stapled them to the stairs. When one stair runner ended....we wrapped it around the stair tread and continued with the next runner and finished off the project with brushed nickel stair rods.

Time: 4 Hours Cost: $150 Difficulty: Easy

    Love these! Love the color! Actually, when I could not find a pattern in stair runners that I liked, I found a small runner I liked at Kohl's and bought 2. Brought them home and told hubby what I wanted. With a staple gun and ending the first one beneath

    Perfect timing! I am getting ready to add a runner to my stairs. Thanks for the tip

    Cool idea! I have a totally unrelated question -- is that a door to close off the stairs going up a few steps? If so, genius! I have wanted to have a 2 story house, with 2 masters on the main level (one for us, one for my Dad), with 2 bedrooms upstairs

    Love this look and I have a set of stairs in desperate need of something - this is pefect for them!

    Where did you find the runner? I am in desperate need of something. Painting them made it worse then they already were!
  • Soooo wanna do this to our stairs. Just trying to figure out how it's going to work since the stairs are plywood underneath the ugly carpet that is currently on them.
