Now down to the business of stair runner carpet fitting with stair rods
Stage 1. Measure the intended position of the stair runner and mark on the stairs .
Stage 2. Take your underlay and cut it to a width of 10cm less than the runner width . Most of our stair runners are 55cm so that is 45cm. Staple this to the tread and just over the riser fixing under the lip of the tread . Leave a 1.5cm space at the back of the stair with no underlay . This space will make room for fixings and the stair rod in due course .
Stage 3. Unwrap the stair runner and fix the end of it under the lip of the landing with your staple gun. For our recommended staple gun to use , just click here .
Stage 4. It is important to pull as tight as possible then fix using your staple gun at the meeting place of the tread and the riser . Spaces between the staples of 2 cm would be very safe . Please ensure your carpet stair runner is safe .
Stage 5. Repeat stage four until you reach the bottom of the stairs with your stair carpet runner .
Stage 6. At the bottom, finish at floor level . Cut the carpet stair runner 1 cm long turn and staple .
Stage 7. Fix your stair rods using the screws provided and your electric screwdriver .
Stage 8. Check everything is safe and strong before use .
