Inexpensive Option for a Stair Runner

6 days ago
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

    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

    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.

    I am fairly certain it is this runner, I have had the same rug on my screened in porch for about 4 years. It is rather flat, more of a mat than a rug, but our dog can't do any damage, will likely wear very well on a stair.
