Stair Runners and Area Rugs - Decorative and Functional


Your home is a reflection of your lifestyle and taste. With an array of colors and patterns to choose from, the Stair Runner Shop is sure to have a product that will compliment your home’s current décor. Runners and rugs protect your valuable hardwood or tile flooring while adding comfort, beauty, and safety to your living space. Uncarpeted stairs are an often-overlooked safety hazard. A properly installed stair runner addresses safety concerns and adds a major decorative element to your entrance. A combination of runners or coordinating area rugs in the foyer or surrounding hallways not only add style, but offer the added benefit of cutting down on echoes that often exist in areas of the home where there are hard surface floor coverings.

Please Contact us with any questions about your runner or rug project. We will be happy to help you to find the best product for your home and lifestyle!
