Carpet in Paramus, NJ from G. Fried Flooring & Design

How are custom carpet stair runners made?

If you have stairs that you need to protect, a stair runner is a great product choice. These areas see a great deal of traffic and need a little something extra in busy spaces.

But how are these carpet stair runners made? That's a good question, and here are some facts that will help with an answer.

Runners are customized carpet pieces

Every runner and area rug starts as a piece of carpeting, with different changes. Some come in standard sizes, while others turn into specialty shapes or sizes.

When customizing a piece, getting the specific look you want and need is easy. But for many, standard options from our carpet flooring store are plenty.

Creating the perfect piece

Once a manufacturer cuts a carpet, it must be bound with the proper edging. These bindings can differ significantly, but there are three main types.

Regular binding tape or cloth creates an edge of different sizes. They can be very thin or much thicker, based on the look needed.

Serging is a binding type that looks very much like hand stitching. However, it gives rugs a more formal, elegant appearance.

A fringe binding takes formality to the next level and comes in a variety of lengths and looks. Custom hall and stair runner carpet with fringing works best in areas of low traffic, so less cleaning is necessary.
