Stripes can be very coastal chic. In blues and sands, this beach cottage's staircase shouts seaside sophistication. Take note that the carpet is installed in the waterfall style. The runner falls directly from the nose of the tread to the next tread without being affixed to the riser face in between.
Busy stripes hides dirt and wear and tear, making high-traffic areas like staircases perfect for accepting them.
Installed in the Hollywood style, this runner follows the shape of the stair. The black and white striped carpet was stapled underneath and around the nose of each tread.
Vertical stripes have the ability to make spaces feel larger. Missoni's Venetian Stripe Rug adds color and height to this Toronto penthouse.
Striped carpeting is affixed to the riser, so this is a Hollywood-style runner. Installing a runner in this fashion prevents dust and dirt buildup behind the fall of the carpet.
Installed in the waterfall style, this carpet flows continuously down the stairs, tacked where necessary.
This runner measures 27 inches wide; its resilient flat weave is perfect for stairs.
I appreciate when a stairway's carpet choice is tied into the design of the home's surrounding areas. In this foyer, the striped runner works beautifully with the inlay strips in the hardwood floor.
A mitered corner is a very attractive touch on a striped runner as it turns a corner, as you can see on the transition from landing to stairs in this Winnetka, Illinois, home.
