A Guide To Stair & Hall Way Runners

Whatever your taste in design, dress your stairs with something decorative yet practical.

If you are thinking about choosing a runner for your stairs or hallway then check the condition of your floorboards and consider how the two will work together.  The next step  is to measure your stairs or hallway and decide how much space you would like to leave either side of the runner.

One of the great things about stair and hall runners is that they can can create the illusion of more space. It's just the same as painting the walls in a light colour or adding a mirror to a room.  If your stairway is dark or narrow then a patterned runner could help to make it look bigger.

As your hallway and stairs receive more traffic than the rest of your house it is important to choose a good quality runner that can cope with the daily wear and tear. For comfort and durability, it’s wise to choose a mix of wool and nylon.

You may think that stair runners are held in place by stair rods, but infact these are purely a decorative finishing touch. They add to the look of a stair runner and give it extra personality and style.

Our Brink & Campman stair runners are made from 80% pure new wool and 20 % polyamide - ideal to achieve the right balance of comfort and durability.
