Stair Carpeting in Media


Ever since childhood, we are always told to be careful on the stairs. It is a high-traffic spot in our house that can result in nasty accidents with a less than cautious step. Installing stair carpeting makes walking up and down safer for those in your home. Especially if you have a smooth floor such as hardwood or laminate, a stair runner will provide more traction underfoot to prevent slips and falls. This is especially helpful with our youngest and our eldest. Stair runners are a simple and inexpensive fix to a potentially dangerous problem.

Not only is it safer for your family members, but stair carpeting actually protects your flooring as well. Each time you go up and down the stairs, your flooring absorbs every pound of pressure. Through the years, your wood will be worn down and weak. By installing stair carpeting, there is something else to absorb the weight of your steps. Carpets are installed with a protective padding underneath that will keep your flooring strong for decades to come. On top of that, when floors get old – especially hardwood – they get that classic creak everyone can hear around the house. A carpet runner will absorb the weight and the sound to keep your stairways silent.


Stair runners are an easy way to redesign your space without having to start fresh. A unique pattern or bold color will completely transform your space. We also carry different textures and fabrics to add more comfort, traction, or style to your stairs. One concern we often hear is that a stair runner will cover up the precious investment underneath. If you’ve just installed hardwood flooring, you don’t want to hide it from the world. The good news is that carpet runners are cut with your flooring in mind and will retain a border of your wood floors. We have so many colors and textures to choose from that you can easily select a carpet that compliments the colors and aesthetic of the hardwood.

Stair runners are a beautiful, warm, and practical addition to any Media home staircase. Floor Coverings International Brandywine Valley carries every carpet choice you could want and is ready to install it for you. Call us today for a free in-home consultation and estimate!
