A Few Pointers

Connect the home decor dots in between floors with a runner that complements your hardwood steps, and at the same time protects your staircase from the ups and downs of daily use.

While roll width sizes are oftentimes standard, the length isn’t necessarily a given. Some companies sell their runners in eight-foot or perhaps 12-foot lengths. Others sell them to specification by the linear foot—and all coordinate with carpets or rugs in a broad range of measurements.

Style options are also all over the map, from old-world Persians with intricate border accents to light-hearted designs that lend a hint of the unexpected to your nest.

Shown: Stately, elegant and European in feel, the all-wool Ribbon Trellis pattern runner with a striking border from Nourison’s Ashton House Collection makes a stylish statement guests won’t soon forget. Each carpet is made on a special loom to create an incredible breadth of colors in just one design. Available in eight colors in 27-inch-wide dimension. About $42 per linear foot, or 36” wide for $52 per linear foot; Nourison
