My wife and I disagree on the position of a stair runner. Our bottom seven steps are wider where they are exposed at the railing than at the top where they are enclosed on both sides by the wall. Should we center on the top steps, which throws the centering off at the bottom; or center at the bottom, which throws the top off.
I have attached two photos-one of each possible way of centering the runner. If anyone knows, your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Maybe we should split the difference.
