If you're installing carpeting on stairs and want to keep it looking streamlined throughout your design, it's important to know that cut-pile carpeting will bend better over the stair edges than looped pile. The spaces between looped pile tend to open at the point when the carpet curls over a step. Also, looped pile can snag, especially at transition areas and along seams. The density is another consideration to factor into your decision. Unsightly backing is visible when carpeting that is not thick enough curves over the step.
Ask our friendly sales representatives for samples in the colors that you are considering. Examine them in the natural light of your home before finalizing your decision. Be aware that exposure to the sun can cause the carpeting to fade. Choose a fade-resistant carpet for areas exposed to direct sunlight.
Test the sample's density by inserting your fingers deep into the pile. If the fibers separate easily and you can feel the backing, that sample is probably not the best option for stairs.
