If you have a small staircase, using stripes can create the illusion of longer stairs with vertical stripes or wider stairs with horizontal stripes. Not only will the staircase look bigger and more stylish, but striped carpet is also practical because it hides more marks and scuffs from the inevitable high footfall.

Be bold and create a grand entrance with a contrast between white painted stairs and a black carpet runner. Watch your guests react as when they see the contemporary monochrome result! Let’s not forget the practicality that black carpet minimises any risk of seeing any naughty stains.
