Remodel on a stair case built in 1909.

Our customers’ home was built in 1909. She needed to refinish the stairs.
She stripped and sanded all the stairs. Photos of the finished sanded stairs are below.
The finished look is stunning. It has brought back the elegance of the home.

The customers’ dogs needed help, for the stairs were slick and they would often fall.

We assisted her and priced out options in which to cover the stairs. One option would be to have the stair runner on the steps, and have a free standing runner on the landing. The other option would be to have the stair runner on the steps, and connect the landing to the stairs.

The customer decided to have The Rug Depot connect the landing piece to the stairs. We would have to do a double miter on the landing in order for the material to turn, wrap around the landing and continue up the next section of the stairs.

To fit the characteristics of the home, our customer choose a product called Val Bella. A stunning red runner with a navy border.
Rug number: 178571 Val Bella VB-4346 26″ roll runner.

We received templates, fabricated the material and shipped it to our customer.

The customer had a local installer staple down the runner.

The outcome….
A stunning addition to her elegant stairs.

Customer comments: “Hi Meg,
We finally got the runner installed. Had to wait on our local people and they were backed up with the holiday rush. Everything went in beautiful! We absolutely love it. It’s hard to tell in the pictures because of the posts in the way but the lower section is centered on the steps. The big post in the way makes it look like it’s not at certain angles but it fit just right. As you can see our little dogs love it. They ran up and down several times after the installers left. No more slipping! Thank you!!”

“Yes you can post the pictures. We are so happy with it!”
