Stair tread rugs need, first of all, to be secure to the stair. Beyond that, they can create a focal point for the stair, adding color. Or they can tie an area at the foot of the stair into an area at the top. Color, fiber, and the feel of the tread underfoot are all important. Installation is certainly a factor, and knowing how to make your stair tread rugs secure. Understated or bright, thick or barely there, we have a stair tread rug that is sure to work on your set of steps.
