We had our runner installed last night. I was a little nervous of how I would like the pattern, but I have to say I not only like it, I love it! When we first moved in I thought I didn't want to compromise the steps by putting carpet over it. But having a toddler changes things, it's all about safety! Now that we have carpet on the steps, I don't know how we lived for almost two years without it.
We are still in the midst of other home improvements, so stay tuned for more pictures to come.
Here is the runner. Again we went with Smart Carpet, a Costco vendor. We paid $862 for the carpet, binding and installation. I also received a small runner for my hallway, all included in the price above. The carpet we chose is by Milliken and the style is Modern Flair, Nickel. The carpet is nylon and has a basic pad underneath.
