Stair runner

Silly question, but...how do you go about getting a stair runner installed? Can a regular carpet store do that?

Thanks

Most carpet stores have runners but some have far more to select from. Look around your area.

Carpeting people do it. You can purchase carpeting you like and have it edge-bound and use that or choose from runners designed and sold as such. Typically, it is stapled to treads and runners using 1/4" crown staples. Also, it is in many cases padded underneath.

Yes, work with the carpet installers who can be referred to you by your carpet store.

In addition to stapeling the runners you could also jazz up the look by using stair rods. Here is an example of what they are and some general cost. http://www.knobsandhardware.com/stair-rods_612.html

Do a search for them if interested. I just found these guys at random. Check pricing on other sites.
