Carpet is the most common flooring seen on the staircase. It provides a soft and comfortable feeling underfoot, is stylish, and is easy to keep clean.
You can use it to make a bold design statement with bold colors and striped, geometric, or trellis patterns. Or, it can be more subtle with a neutral palette.
Either way, your staircase will make a great first impression.
What’s the best carpeting for stairs?
Every room and area has its priorities and challenges. For the stair, the emphasis is both endurance and safety.
Some to look at in our carpet store include "My Choice" by Shaw or Perfect Mix by Mohawk. These include highly durable and stain-resistant fibers such as nylon, triexta, and PET.
They will stand up to the heaviest foot traffic.
Style and safety
The two go hand-in-hand because the rug needs to fit securely around treads and railings. It must also provide a flat landing for the foot to prevent slips and falls.
Low-pile rugs, which are also the most durable and easiest to keep clean, are great safety choices. Berbers, which have short, tightly woven loops, are also ideal for your carpet in Sebring, FL.
Berbers also frequently use olefin fiber, a durable, stain-resistant, and budget-friendly item. Olefin is especially strong when used in a looped construction.
Carpet's significant safety advantages
Carpeting has many advantages, but two are of specific interest to stairs. First, they soften hard falls, which is significant in homes with kids, toddlers, and seniors.
It also reduces noise. Even a 6-pound cat creates the tap-tap-tapping of footsteps on stairs!
