Frequently Asked Questions

 What materials are stair runners typically made of?

Stair runners can be made from various materials, including wool, synthetic fibres like nylon and polyester, or a blend of materials. Each material has unique characteristics such as durability, softness, and ease of maintenance. 


How do I measure my stairs for a runner?

To measure your stairs for a runner, start by measuring the length of each stair tread and the height of each riser. Add these measurements together to determine the total length needed. 

Consider the width of the runner you desire and any extra length needed for the landing at the top of the stairs.

While it is possible to install a stair runner yourself, hiring a professional installer is often recommended to ensure proper fitting, secure installation, and a professional finish. Professional installers have the expertise and tools necessary for a high-quality installation. 


How do I choose the right style and pattern for my stair runner?

Consider the overall decor of your home and the existing colour scheme when choosing a style and pattern for your stair runner. You can opt for a classic look with neutral colours or make a statement with bold patterns or vibrant colours. It's essential to choose a design that complements your home's aesthetic. 


What maintenance is required for stair runners?

Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning are essential for maintaining the appearance of your stair runner. Depending on the material, professional cleaning may be required periodically to remove deep-seated dirt and stains. 


How long does it take to receive a custom stair runner?

The time it takes to receive a custom stair runner can vary depending on the stock levels and design complexity. Generally, custom orders can take a few weeks processed, manufactured, and delivered.
