Reader request – stair runners

Posted on Thu, 8 Jul 2010 by KiM

This reader request comes from Melinda: “My partner and I are renovating our 130 year old semi in Sydney, he wants carpet on the stairs (because apparently I ‘clunk’… which to be perfectly honest I do) and I want to stain the original timber. I’m thinking a stair runner may be the perfect compromise. I would be very much appreciative if you could dig into your amazing picture resources for stair runners.” Here are some photos of inspirational stair runners for you Melinda, the first being my absolute favourite EVAH.

Fun post! I love the one below your favorite on the right — I suppose that means I’m a traditionalist at heart. Dark hardwoods make me drool. xoxo

Melinda, we put down FLOR squares (cut in half) on the treads of our stair and painted the steps black. Really nice effect and not expensive! They have stuck perfectly after years of vacuuming!

Leah says:

I love the red stairs!

Lindsay says:

LOVE the rug featured in Country Living. Anyone know what issue that was in? Or even better, know where I could get that rug?

Kate says:

Ooo i love that first rainbow staircase! So fun!

Lots of beautiful stairs there, but all rather traditional – except the multi-colored colorful stair runner, of course!

Jose says:

Woow, wonderful staircases. The first one from Bill Kingston is clearly my favorite.
