Stair treads

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.


Carpenter's rule:- Cut to fit - Beat into place :-)

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!
