As you may know, runners are long, narrow rugs that are typically used in hallways or on stairs. They are both decorative and functional, so there are plenty of reasons to add one to your Vadnais Heights home. However, if you’re not convinced, our Floor Coverings International White Bear Lake experts have summarized some of the top benefits of carpet runners:
Why Do You Need a Carpet Runner?
If you have a hallway or stairway that seems boring and bland, spice it up with a runner! Runners come in many colors and patterns, so you’ll have no problem finding something that fits your style. The right carpet runner can really bring a space together and make it look complete.
If you have floors that are uncomfortable or vulnerable to damage, a runner can both help to protect them and add warmth and comfort. Thus, if you have cold, hard tile or concrete flooring, or delicate hardwoods, a runner can vastly improve the feel of your floors.
In the winter months, snow and rain can get tracked inside your house, making floors wet and slippery. A runner (especially on stairs) can help add traction. If you have small children or elderly adults in your home, a runner is a must-have to help them avoid tripping or falling.
