We have seen an increase in popularity of stair runners over the past year and it’s clear to see why. Not only do they add real beauty and character to a home but they also play a vital role for probably the busiest area in a house. A staircase receives the most traffic in a house, with family members constantly coming up and down them. Taking this into consideration it is very important to choose a resilient carpet that will stand the test of time.
