Are Wooden Stair Rods Right for Your Home?
If you’re planning on having a set of stair rods added to your home, it’s doubtful you need any convincing of their benefits. But have you chosen the specific material you’d like just yet? A lot of people plump for traditional stair rods made from cast iron or bronze, but there is another option: wooden stair rods. These can bring a real sense of rustic, earthy charm to any home – but are they right for you?
What makes wooden stair rods different?
Here at Stair Rods Direct, we offer a few different options for those looking into wooden stair rods. It’s understandable that some people may worry that a wooden stair rod wouldn’t be as sturdy or long-lasting as its metallic counterpart, but this is far from the truth. The wooden stair rods we offer are made from solid hardwood with different finishes for aesthetics. They’re fastened using heavy brass tips and brackets, meaning that they’ll be just as effective as a metallic stair rod in securing the carpet to the stairway.
What finishes are available for wooden stair rods?
We offer two types of wooden stair rods: Tudor Runner Rods and Tudor Front-Fix Rods. Both of these are built from the same durable hardwood, but are also available with a couple of different finishes depending on your taste. If you’re going for a light motif, we’d recommend the Light Oak finish, whereas for a more traditional effect we’d suggest the Dark Oak finish. Either of them will bring a true sense of class and rustic nostalgia to your home. So if you want that true ‘country house’ feeling, wooden stair rods are a great choice.
Do wooden stair rods work with runners and fitted carpet?
One of the great things about our selection of wooden stair rods is the fact that we have options for either carpet runners or fitted carpets. If you’re using a carpet runner on your staircase, you’ll need the Tudor Runner Rods, but if you have fitted carpet on your stairs, the Tudor Front-Fix Rods are the answer. Either of these variants come with your choice of tips and brackets, available in a number of eye-catching finishes such as Antique Brass, Pewter, Satin Nickel and many more.
