My DIY video tutorial on how to install your own stair runner-in less than 30 minutes- can be found HERE on instagram (find my runner here). A few things to note: you don’t have to tack yours with finishing nails-I did because we rent our home in the summer; I decided to avoid any safety hazards and secure it in place. If you want this to be temporary use velcro only. If you want it to be permanent-or more long term-use 1 inch finishing nails to secure after you’ve installed the velcro-finishing nail holes are really easy to repair if I ever remove these-with a little filler and stain. You can use any runner rug-just measure and double check the length for your stairs before you order. The runners I ordered are 12 feet long, and I had to cut them down to size. This is a seriously easy project you can finish in less than 30 minutes!
