Decorative Stair Runner Rods Ideas
Stair runner rods add decorative values that also help to keep stair carpet runners in place steadily and beautifully. When ordering the design on the market whether physically or via online, you should have to make sure that the stair rod length should be 1 1/2″ longer than the width of the carpet. All stair carpet rods are made of metal especially the solid brass which available in a number of pleasing to the eyes finishes. You can simply add a touch of elegance, color and texture to your home’s interior staircase with the installation of a carpeted runner.
The carpeting narrow strip is set on a pad. Then it is attached to tackless strips and nailed to each of the tread. The thin and dense pad helps to footsteps with quiet and cushioned design. It does also prevent the runner from prematurely wearing out. Do not use foam padding that standard because it is too soft in providing the necessary support.
It is a relatively easy project when it comes to installing a stair runner on a straight staircase even though for DIY novices. It is going to be more challenging by having winder stairs that turn corners. Stair runner rods are priced by the linear foot. They are available in two options of widths: 27 inches and 32 inches. They are made of wool, synthetic fibers or even a combination of both.
