Shopping for patterned carpet on stairs can be a daunting task. There are many factors to consider, from the type of carpet to the pattern itself. Here are some things you need to know before you start shopping:
- Consider the durability: Stairs are one of the highest traffic areas in a home, so you need to choose a carpet that can withstand the wear and tear. Ask our knowledgeable sales staff about the most durable products for stairs.
- Choose a pattern that fits your style: When it comes to patterned carpets, there are endless options. Consider your personal style and the overall aesthetic of your home when choosing a pattern. A bold pattern can make a statement, while a more subtle pattern can add texture and depth. Trust that we will guide you on the right pattern for your stairs. We will be honest and tell you during the selection process if we think the pattern you are considering is not a good idea.
- Think about color: The color of your carpet should complement the rest of your home’s decor. If you have a lot of neutral colors in your home, you may want to choose a patterned carpet with a pop of color. On the other hand, if your home is already quite colorful, a more neutral pattern may work best.
- Check the size of the pattern: The size of the pattern on your carpet can make a big difference in how it looks on your stairs. Larger patterns may be overwhelming on a small set of stairs, while smaller patterns may get lost on a larger staircase. We have extensive experience with almost every type of staircase you can imagine. We will use our years of experience and expertise to make sure the pattern you choose will look great on your staircase. We will also let you know things you may not have considered like if your stairs aren’t perfectly straight and how that will affect the look of the pattern that you choose.
- Consider the installation process: Installing patterned carpet on stairs is more difficult than installing a solid color carpet and requires expertise and experience. You can’t trust every image that you see on the internet with patterned carpet on stairs. Some are digitally enhanced and don’t accurately represent how the carpet will actually be installed on your stairs. When you’re looking online for inspiration, be sure not to fall in love with a patterned carpet on a set of stairs that isn’t like YOUR staircase.
- Think about maintenance: Stairs can be difficult to clean, so you want to choose a carpet that is easy to maintain. Talk to us about your lifestyle and we will help find the perfect carpet for your maintenance needs.
When shopping for patterned carpet on stairs, you need to consider durability, pattern size, color, installation, maintenance, and safety. By keeping these factors in mind, you can choose a patterned carpet that not only looks great but also meets your needs.
