Stair step rugs are a great way to make your home look more attractive and elegant. Adding carpet to your staircase is also helpful in reducing the noise in your home, dampening high bends and footsteps wooden stairs can create. If the carpet on the stairs also makes them safer, the carpet is less likely to slip and fall over a slippery smooth surface. Laying carpet on stairs is simple and requires a small amount of know-how and preparation
Choose a blanket to install on your staircase. You will most likely want to match the stair step rugs in the room and under the stairs for the best look. Cut rough rugs are easier to use on stairs, but if you need help choosing a blanket visit a local carpet dealer or research carpet online. Choose blanket padding.
Deciding on a thickness is based on sound absorption, price, quality and other features of upholstery you want. Padding will be installed under the stair step rugs. Measure the length of the individual steps as well as the width of the stairs. Install each step individually so that the stairway carpet does not pull. Also measure the depth (height from one step to the next) and add it to the length of the step.
