Tone on Tone: I chose a wool sisal style staircase runner with very narrow binding. It's installed about 3 inches from the sides (and cut out around the newel post) in the Hollywood style, which is tailored and bespoke. The big area rug is the same, but with a different binding. Larger area rugs do wonders for small spaces!
Dart Midnight Blue stair runner from Roger Oates #StairsandStripes Love this runner. Carpet on stairs is very important to me for safety. Do not want hard wood or laminate stairs. But there is already carpet cut into stairs so replace. Love this look and the colors.
installing seagrass safavieh stair runner - Google Search What I like about this is the black trimmed carpet, and stairs, and handrail. Plus, the closet under the stairs. I also like that the wall is behind the stairwell, rather than in front, and blocking as ours currently is. Thinking this is the answer to improving the ambiance of our basement room.
