Stairs and Halls

Area Rug Store WinnipegAs the popularity of hardwood floors has increased, so too has the demand for staircase and hallway runners. Harry Ross, owner of the Area Rug Store says, “It’s one of our best-kept secrets. While we’ve been selling them for years, there’s more popularity and more interest in these products for sound-proofing, safety and beauty. ”While previous runners were mostly traditional styles, the latest brands run the gamut in terms of selection with looks including traditional, transitional, and modern.

Mr. Ross adds that 75% of area rugs are fabricated of synthetic materials with the most popular being polypropylene which resembles and feels much like wool. “Polypropylene is the most inert material with many benefits. It won’t fade in the sun, won’t fade when cleaned and is extremely cleanable because it won’t support a stain. Unlike wool, it allows you to clean it with a cleaning agent which is effective in reviving the appearance of both stair and hall runners.

”The Area Rug Store also sells various types of under cushions and underlay's that are appropriate for use on both hallways and staircases.

“We are always glad to come out to your home, take some measurements and price the job. And of course, all of our estimates are free.”
