We received an overwhelming response from our Instagram post last week to share our favorite durable and stylish stair runners. You can watch that Instagram reel HERE! In that video, we demonstrated why adding a stair runner to hardwood stairs is a safety precaution we encourage clients to take. We find that hardwood stairs present a danger when there are children, pets, or people with mobility issues in the home. A runner provides a safe place to walk on the stairs, not to mention the added comfort of the soft carpet underfoot.

In today’s market, you certainly don’t have to compromise style for safety. There are thousands of stair runner options out there, so we’ve rounded up our favorite styles by one of our favorite designers: Annie Selke. Pro-tip – because stair runners have high foot traffic, we only shop runners from their indoor/outdoor rug line, Dash & Albert rugs. Their Polypropylene and PET (an environmentally friendly choice as they’re created from recycled plastic bottles) woven rugs are made of washable, durable fibers making them perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
