Unlike other parts of your Cedar Park home your stairs are most certainly a place that will endure regular foot traffic. To ensure the lasting durability of your stair carpet it’s important to carefully consider what color and style is best for your particular home and lifestyle.
A neutral-toned carpet ensures timelessness and versatility, and in most cases is a great choice for your living room, bedroom, basement, or home office. However, choosing a color for a stair carpet can be trickier because your stairs are a feature that will likely be exposed to dirt, dust, and other materials on a regular basis. In the case of a stair carpet, it’s worth considering a darker color and staying away from whites and lighter tones in order to hide blemishes. Another, less drastic option, is to select a color that encompasses a number of color tones, like the Winners Choice III carpet which is a subtle mix of gold and yellow, to help hide dirt.
When choosing a carpet for your stairs you also have a number of style options, including Shag, Frieze, and Berber. For stairs we don’t necessarily recommend shag because its long fibers can encourage the collection of dirt and other material, but frieze is a great alternative. Made of shorter carpet fibers that are still soft, frieze is often called the improved shag and can withstand heavy foot traffic. A frieze carpet stair doesn’t force you to sacrifice the comfort provided by shag, and allows for less maintenance. Berber is another option if you’re less concerned with the softness of your stair carpet. It’s a highly affordable style known for its knotted pile design, and will resist the stains brought on by daily foot traffic.
