What Do Your Stairs Say?

One of the great opportunities from my perspective that is so often missed is punching up your stairs with patterned carpet, it can either be very contemporary, transitional,   or very traditional.  Below are listed many of the really great things about considering this when replacing staircase carpeting.

1) It takes a boring or marginal staircase and makes a really great design statement.

2) Although it looks very high end it is not necessarily very costly. Stairs don’t usually require much carpet.  The cost on stairs is in the installation. The polypropylenes that are used a lot for this type of application are not usually much more than what the rest of your carpets cost.  The wools however can be very pricey but again not a lot of  carpet is required.

3) If you use a print  maintenance is easy, they don’t show dirt as much as a plain carpet and both materials that are  mentioned clean up very well.

4) Being a low profile carpet both, your wools and polypropylene wear like iron. Normally stairs show wear worse than any other place in your home but not in this case.

Custom Stair Runners

Unique stairs runners make a boring staircase a focal point of your home.   The stairs shown above had a plain beige carpet before we put our touches to it.  For this set of curved stairs, we used input from our client along with tying in some continuity from the Nourison wool diamond pattern carpet that we installed in the media room.  Because the stair is curved, we had each step individually made so that the pattern in the border matched.

It is always exciting to get new products for our showroom floor.  This collection of Clarence Chevron and Clarence Stripe area rugs is one example.   Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is proud to offer these items in standard and custom sizes (up to 13′ wide).  We can even make stair runners in any width!  The collection offers five color options in the stripe pattern and six color ways in the chevron pattern.  They are complimentary pallets.  Therefore, using a combination of them for two rooms would be a great choice.  Furthermore, we can offer the stripe running horizontally or vertically.  Isn’t is great to have choices?

Custom Runners for Halls and Stairs

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets can add some spice to a boring staircase or hallway with runners in a variety of materials. In the case of sisal or seagrass, we can apply specialty edge treatments such as leather, cotton, jute, linen or microfiber. Notice in the photo below that it was a “continuous” runner that we ran onto the landing onto the next flight of stairs.

Seagrass stair runner

Perhaps you have an extra wide set of stairs or hall. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has a variety of sources to create the perfect size for your home. We can even add complimentary borders as shown in the photo below. We had this extra wide runner fabricated to warm up the marble floor in the entry and hall. This was created for one of our designer’s personal residence in Newport Beach.

Custom wool runner with border

Perhaps you have a curved staircase. Shown below is a rug that we had custom made for a client in Laguna Beach. The client had an oriental rug in the entry. We made a complimentary pattern and templated each stair. This allowed us to “pattern match” the runner for the curved stairs. The photo shows each individual piece spread out to create the curve.

Custom designed wool runner

Shown below is a custom designed runner for a curved stairway. The client, located in Corona del Mar, had a tapestry throw that inspired the border design. We also created a large coordinating area rug for the family room which incorporated the tapestry border design along with an interpretation of the wrought iron railing that was on the stairway and second floor balcony looking down below.
