Question

Does anyone know where I can find adhesive-backed stair treads made of carpet material????? Or, carpeted stair treads that can be tacked down? I don't want a continuous carpet runner on my interior hardwood steps.
I know that a few years ago these existed, but now I can't find them anywhere.

Hi Darlene:

Know what you mean. Things that seemed to be great ideas years ago no longer exist. Aint progress a pain in the butt :-)

You could try either carpet tiles that can be cut to width and either glued or staped down. Or, you could simply buy a length of runner and cut to length to fit the step and attach.

Either way, I would suggest staples. This way, if you grow tired of the carpet design, it's a simple matter to remove the carpet and replace with new. Glue on the other hand is a much different matter.

Hi!
My husband and I work in an oriental rug/carpeting store. I'd suggest if you were going to cut a runner or carpeting down that you may want to bind (or serge) the cut edges to keep it from fraying. It does run in to a little bit of money (depending on how many you need to do) but it will definately make the stair treads last longer and look nicer!

Carpet stair treads

Yes, finding carpeted stair treads isn't easy. Other than a limited number of sites offering braided treads, Home Depot has a decent selection of Oriental type treads in two lengths, 28 and 33 I believe. On their web site, enter in the the search bar "carpet treads" and it should take you right there. Ironically, I did not find this during my search for carpeted stair treads on the internet but just took a shot at their individual site. Good luck

I'm looking for carpets for treads too

All I can find is braided ones. I couldn't find anything currently at homedepot.com, but there are braided ones at multiple sites like homedecorators.com. But what if you don't want such a country look? I, too, wonder what happened to the Persian-style treads...sigh.

These might be what you are looking for

I think this are overkill for my current project ... but they might be what you are looking for.
