I LIKE THE RUNNER TOO AND THE WAY IT MATCHED THE LOUNGE RUG. THE ONLY THING IS IT LOOKS LIKE SEAGRASS WHICH IS NOT THE BEST MATERIAL FOR A STAIR RUNNER AS ITS A BIT INFLEXIBLE. . WE HAVE A RANGE OF NATURAL MATERIALS AT MY WORK SPECIALLY MADE FOR STAIR RUNNERS. http://www.wholesalecarpets.co.uk/
LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOU ALL THINK .
TAKE CARE

Hi Lisa,

I am a little unclear on your message, but will try to respond as best I can.

As to place the master bedroom on the ground floor or second floor, that is completely a personal preference. Some people love the fact that with a second floor master you have a private space, totally independent of the rest of the house. Others prefer a main floor master for the convenince of not having to go up and down stairs, something that is more and more important as we age.

I would discourage you from doing a spiral stair. I find them cumbersome, especially if this is a stair you would use a lot. It is also pretty impossible to get any furniture up a spiral stair...

Good luck with your house!

Thank you! Noise is not really a concern here. The entire second floor is basically a master suite, so there is not a lot of traffic up and down the stairs.

How wide are those stairs? And how much did you leave on each side exposed?

The stairs are 3'-4" wide. Typically, I like stairs to be at least four feet wide, but we were working with an existing stair "chase" in an old house. We rebuilt the stair so that the rise and run would be to current code. There is about an inch and a half exposed on each side of the runner.

how many inches between the end of the stairs should a runner like this start? also, in a hall, how far from the start and end of the hallway should the runner start?

Stair runners shouldn't end at the top of the stairs - They should continue as the carpet for the upper hallway.

It depends on the width of your stair. These are pretty narrow, so we just left about an inch and a half on either side.
