Benefits of Stair Carpeting

Stair Carpeting Is Quieter - the insulating properties of carpet reduce or eliminate noisy foot traffic and builder-grade stair noise
Stair Carpeting Is Safer - while slips can happen, falls are gentler because of the increased insulation and cushioning
Stair Carpeting Looks Great! Besides adding warmth and comfort underfoot, carpeted stairs simply look more inviting than bare stairs, which often have unsightly scuffs or stains.

Stair Carpeting Considerations

Carpet Construction

Choose from a variety of thicknesses, textures, and materials to find your perfect carpet, Ultimate Luxe Design offers an extensive selection to suit any preference.

When considering carpet material, it's important to take into account factors like durability and pile height. Wool carpets are renowned for their resilience and endurance to heavy foot traffic without showing wear paths, while nylons are favored by those seeking a non-shedding option. A lower pile nylon or wool carpet is a great choice to withstand wear and tear and doesn't matt down like a high pile. Plus carpets may feel luxurious to the feet, but they wear more quickly compared to a tighter pile.

Soil Resistance

Staircases tend to be high traffic areas so soil resistance is a legitimate concern. Wool is often considered the best material for stair runners due to its durability, softness, and natural resistance to stains and wear. Nylon is also a popular option because it is highly durable and resistant to stains, while polypropylene is a more budget-friendly option that is resistant to stains and easy to clean. Our flooring specialists will help you find the type of carpet that will provide you the optimal soil resistance while meeting your other needs.

Color & Pattern

Selecting the right color that complements the design aesthetic of your home or office space is one of the most important factors when buying new carpet. If your walls or furniture have patterns, it's best to choose a solid color carpet. Stick to a consistent color scheme, such as warm or cool colors. However, if your décor is minimalist, consider adding visual interest with a patterned carpet. Patterns such as stripes, geometrics, florals, or solids are popular choices for stair runner carpets. With an endless number of color combinations in our showroom, achieving visual balance through harmonizing color, patterns, and texture, you are limited only by your imagination.
