Installing a carpet might seem simple — at least when you have a flat surface to work with! However, thanks to their 3-D design, staircases call for some extra planning. We’re about to answer all of your design FAQs, including what type of carpet is best for stairs, and how to choose the right carpet for your staircase. We’ll also cover options that work well with high-traffic stairs, which call for carpeting that is able to resist matting and flattening.
No matter what type of staircase (or staircases) you’ll be carpeting, this easy-to-follow guide will steer you in the right direction. If you’re ready to learn the basics, let’s jump in and get started!
Thanks to decades of technological innovation, modern carpets are constructed from sturdier, more resilient, and easier-to-clean fibers than were available to past generations of homeowners. Most carpets are suitable for everyday staircase use. However, we do recommend that you refer to the design of carpet when making a selection.
When choosing a carpet for your staircase, it’s important to look for textures and materials that will repel soiling and resist flattening. Also, consider warranty options regarding staircases. Here are a few popular options to consider.
