For many of us, stairs are an essential part of living. Whether in the home, at the office, visiting the doctor, or shopping for clothes, stairs are part of getting us where we need to go. For homeowners, stairs can be one of the highest traffic areas of the house. And yet, for whatever reason, they generally receive less attention than other flooring areas.
When it comes to stairs, one type of flooring exceeds the others in both safety and beauty. That flooring option is pattern carpet.
Here are the benefits of installing a patterned carpet on your stairs.
Pattern Carpeting is Safe
Stairs are among the heavily trafficked areas of the home. Whether they lead to the upstairs bedroom, a basement laundry, or a playroom, our stairs get a lot of use.
For parents, stairs can be a source of fear as they pose a risk to infants and young adults. Even the most coordinated of children fall from time to time, and stairs with their firmness and sharp corners can be a dangerous place to do so. But fear not, carpet offers a safe alternative.
Pattern carpeting provides stairway support in the event of a fall, helping to promote safety in the household. It also adds a level of traction that hardwood does not have. The possibility of children slipping while walking up the stairs in socks or barefoot is less of a concern with carpet on the steps.
Pattern Carpeting Hides Stains
Ever spilled something or caused a stain on carpeting or a rug? Of course, you have. One of the many benefits of pattern carpeting is that its ornate design helps to hide stains. If you have children or pets, this is especially important as spills and messes can happen anywhere and at any time, including the stairs.
Cleanup is often as simple as blotting the substance away with a damp rag if spills do occur.
Pattern Carpeting is Visually Appealing
Pattern carpet helps add a sense of visual stimulation to any room it is in. Not only does pattern carpeting help spruce up a dull space, but it can also help to add personality and definition to any room or stairwell.
Let’s say your stairs are currently carpeted in a drab brown. By simply adding a patterned rug or opting for a brand new pattern carpet, you can help change the landscape of your entire room. Pattern carpet helps add immediate style and sophistication to any space.
Pattern Carpeting Comes in a Variety of Styles
Available in many colors, patterns, designs, and styles, pattern carpeting is among the most customizable flooring options out there. No matter what your taste or desired aesthetic, there is a style that is perfect for you.
We walk up and down the stairs in our home because we have to, but what if we started walking up and down the stairs because we wanted to. With beautiful pattern carpet, taking the stairs becomes an aesthetically pleasing experience that is safer and more comfortable. Consider pattern flooring for your home (and your stairs) today!
