Considerations for Stairway Carpet Design and Installation


When you are re-carpeting your staircase, there are some design decisions that you may not be aware of that you'll want to make sure you have a decision for.

Height & Thickness

Stairs are high traffic area, so use Berber if possible to avoid matting.

Timeless Design

Allow the staircase to be part of the home that ages slower if possible

Tucked or Untucked

Tucking allows for a clean look where untucked provides a waterfall aesthetic

DIY vs Hiring

Generally, labor may cost as much as the material itself. cutting carpet wrong may cost extra!

We absolutely loved our carpet that we chose. It was berber, and having had it for over five years, it's still going strong with four kids!
