Houzz is the new way to design your home.

We recently had hardwoor floors installed, including the stairs. The staircase has raised some issues. I really like the look, but 1) the wood is taking a beating and 2) the suckers are slippery! :-) I think a runner would add some style to the area, and maybe save a life or two. Does anyone have some advice, pros and cons? Also, the store rep recommended wrapping the runner under the nose of the last tread and stopping it there, rather than going down to the floor. I haven't seen many examples of that installation, and I don't really like the few I have seen. Thoughts?
