Part of our premium wool collection of stair treads! An elegant but affordable alternative to a complete professional runner installation.
We make the treads in our standard sizes of 24″ wide, 27″ wide, 31″ wide and 35″ wide and they fit the standard 10″ deep stair with a 1″ thick tread. But if you need a custom size, just let us know, we can do that, too! We sell our treads individually so that you can order the correct number to match your stairs. We also custom make matching landings (with the option of a built in bullnose on one edge at no additional cost) and runners, just let us know what you need!
The style is called Clearwater and the color in this listing is called Light Beige. J Mish puts it best: “Clearwater offers a flattened honeycomb design with a modern twist. Small lozenge-shaped cells created by an overlay of raised yarns give this carpet a textile aesthetic. Handwoven in a flatweave construction, Clearwater features six soft colorations, ranging from ivory, alone and with beige, taupe and grey, to a light refreshing blue.”
Here is how we do it:
We start with this awesome 100% New Zealand Wool carpet, cut it down to the correct tread size, seam the borders, permanently attach our True Bullnose® rigid edge, and then add padding then nonskid to the back.
The standard size is made for a 10″ deep tread 24″ wide, but you can upgrade to 27″ wide, 31″ wide or 35″ wide — or we can make any custom size you may need! As shown in our Shop and in the last two pics (of a different style), the stair tread is permanently attached to a rigid bullnose piece so that when installed it will stay nicely wrapped around your stair tread. Other manufacturers use combinations of tape or glue, and hope that your tread will stay wrapped around the end of your stair tread. Not these. treads have a pressure sensitive material that keeps the tread in place and a strong, rigid bullnose edge that keeps the wrap-around in place.
