Is it possible to get a nice/modern stair runner?
March 24, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We recently built a modern two-storey and love it. Our floors are stained concrete and our stairs are cape cod style with dark stained reclaimed douglas fir treads. While they look great, we're worried our 4 and 6 year old will fall down them and get hurt. Since we're beyond baby gate years, is it possible to find a NICE modern runner that isn't traditional or hideous? Are there any other products on the market that can be used on stairs to retain the clean/modern look while providing the safety (and peace of mind) we so greatly desire?

Absolutely! I suggest looking at carpet retailers and you should look for a solid block colour, black, white or even a feature colour... Not all stair runners are old fashioned patterns anymore. Horizontal stripes also look modern and also widen the stairs.. Definitely worth looking into, as you say it's also a safety feature, but that doesn't mean it can't be stylish!
