Step up to the fashion floorspace and give your staircase the wow factor with a brand new carpet.
According to Cormar Carpets, stairways are often overlooked, despite the fact that in many homes it is the first thing people see when they walk in the door.
“Whether the space is small and narrow or large and open, your stairs should get the same decorating treatment as the rest of your house,” says David Cormack, marketing director of Cormar Carpets.
“It’s a great spot to introduce personal style and you can afford to be bold in your interior choices. Halls, stairs and landings are high traffic areas and need hardwearing practical carpets with a good pile weight and density that maintain their appearance. It’s worth spending time and effort on this area to create an enticing entrance.”
If your hallway and staircase is a wide, open, and airy space, why not let a striped carpet take centre stage. Cormar’s Avebury collection, made from 100 per cent pure new wool, comes in either a neat, level loop pile or a textured loop pile and offers four tonal striped designs and eight plain, stylish shades that can be teamed together to work in the hall and up the stairs.
Keep the décor classic with a light striped carpet teamed with soft neutral walls for a timeless feel. A bold carpet colour might be overpowering in a large living room but can look at home on a staircase. Experiment with a deep homely purple or a charcoal grey shade to add a pop of style. Complement with lots of white or cream woodwork to keep the look simple and sophisticated.
For alternative ‘doorstep dash’, choose a simple stylish, flecked neutral which is not only modern but very forgiving as it is less likely to show small marks or ‘bits’ than one that is completely plain. Cormar’s Natural Berber Twist collection, in 80 per cent wool, comes in a host of contemporary beige and grey shades.
