- I love what you have accomplished here. We have a very heavy feeling stairway with floor to ceiling dark wood spindles and dark stairs. We are about to rip up carpeting that we inherited, and I am struggling with how to design a new runner because the steps are painted (all other trim is stained wood). Could we paint light or paint dark and go with a light runner? Ideas are welcome!
If your goal is lighten, painting the stair treads (the part you step on) and risers (the vertical part) a lighter color is a good option. A light runner could help too, just be aware of how much traffic the stair gets and maintenance. Benjamin Moore has great whites; difficult to give suggestions without being there :) Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.
- name of the runner. is there a name for this type of carpet install on stairs and hallway?
Hi, This is a custom rug and runner by Edward Fields http://edwardfields.com/locations/san-francisco/. The type of installation is called Hollywood Style which is a great tailored look. M~
