Stair Runners: How to finish your landings

There are various options when it comes to stair runners, however the choices will be dependent on the size and shape of your landing.


When I am assisting clients with a flat-weave stair runner, one of the most common questions I get asked is 'what should I do on my landing?' In this article we will explore the different options available to you.


Keep in mind that your landing starts on the top step meeting with the stair runner on the riser of the top step.

The Corners

On stair runner installations where you have a half or quarter turn landings, a sophisticated way to change direction is to have the corners mitred.

Keeping the same width of runner on the turns also creates a visual path inviting you up the stairs.




Alternatively you can opt for the runner to be overlaid creating a layered and textured look.


Wall to Wall

For properties where the landing is larger or is leading on to other rooms, you could consider a full cover option.

Flat-weave lengths are sewn together in order to cover a larger space and keep the pattern cohesive.

Play with pattern and pair a bordered stair runner design with a solid option on the landings for an extra design touch.

Broadloom Carpet

In some projects where the stair runner runs up to the floor that has bedrooms or other adjoining rooms, it will often meet with broadloom carpet.

Pick out one of the colours from your stair runner and match your carpet to that. Alternatively there are beautiful natural fibre carpets such as sisal and jute that will add texture to your pad.

Area Rugs

For those who want something a bit more flexible can opt for an area rug in a matching or complimentary design.

This is a great option if you like to change up your home decor between seasons.

Go for a natural fibre or cotton rug in the summer and a wool or shaggy rug for the colder months.

Just ensure that you lay an anti-slip underlay under your rug or you will need to re-adjust it regularly.

Personally I feel that the wall to wall option done with a flat-weave or broadloom carpet, is the best one. It doesn't take away from the stair runner but clearly zones the landing as a different area.
