Parrys Carpets:

Best flooring options for stairs

While many people love the concept of stairs in their home, imagining the charm, elegance and grandeur, not many people consider how practical those stairs will be when they have a family, or when they get older. Thankfully, no matter what stage of life you are in, or will be, with the right flooring, you can be sure your stairs will be practical, safe and stylish for years to come.

As everyone has varying circumstances when deciding on appropriate flooring for stairs, we have created this quick guide to the options available:

It is warm, soft and keeps the noise to a minimum and while Carpet won’t stop every bump and bruise, it will go a long way to making your stairs safer for the younger members of your family. Plus, as loop pile and some cut pile carpet is quite durable, it can withstand a decent amount of foot traffic and with a plethora of styles, colours and price options available, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

If you don’t wish to cover all your stairs, Carpet Runners can offer a viable alternative. Carpet Runners offer many of the same benefits as carpet and can blend in with pre-existing flooring if that is a requirement.

Not only is it elegant and beautiful, Hardwood is also one of the easiest to types of floor to clean and maintain. Hardwood flooring can take high levels of foot traffic over a very long time however don’t forget that it will likely be a more slippery and noisier alternative.

Tough and durable, Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) is very good for stairs with a lot of foot traffic. Like Hardwood, it is easy to clean, and with plenty of styles available, you can achieve the look you are after at a cost-effective price. Whilst not as quiet as carpet or carpet runners, Luxury Vinyl Plank is a very popular choice and can last up to 25 years if taken good care of.

If you’re still unsure we strongly suggest you visiting one of our five Perth stores and speak to one of our experienced staff for more expert advice on choosing flooring your stairs. Why wait, now is the time to take the next step!
