Herringbone is such a classic look. This fine herringbone would be great for high traffic staircases, I love it!

I think this image in my all time favourite stair runner image. It’s the colour of the runner, the texture of the wood, the light but also the hall runner that runs along side it. This Dash Albert stair runner is just perfect for me!

The addition of brass rods, really elevates this soft, gorgeous runner.

Stair runners are an easy addition to a home. Quite easy to self install if necessary, a simple weekend project to polish your home staircase.

Do you have a staircase at home? Do you have a runner?

  1. These are so fabulous – they make me wish I had stairs! I did have stairs in first floor maisonette when I lived in London and I had individual stair treads instead. I wish I’d know then what I know about stair runners now!

    1. Sammie, I had to google Maisonette, I had no idea what they were even though we stayed in one in London!! It was such a romantic experience a childhood dream come true. I loved the architecture in the UK.

  2. There is very beautiful carpet on the third picture! What’s the best way to unfix the carpet off?

  3. Hi Stacy, I really enjoy reading your blog and these have been some of my favorites this year as well. I am fairly new to DIY projects in general … We recently bought a house and are slowly repainting interior. I have done a couple furniture makeovers and I’m currently working on two dressers for my kids rooms. I noticed that you highly recommend the Home Rite paint sprayer. I’m wondering if it might be worth it for me to invest in that for furniture, the six panel interior doors that we have on each of our rooms and closets. I’ve also thought of refinishing the wood cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen. Will the sprayer that you use and have recommended be good for these purposes? Do you feel that it is easy to use and easy to clean? Do you clean it in between each used or can you save it for the next coat paint?
