Stair Runner Ideas: The Forgotten Hallway

Stairs often become an after thought in the process of a home reno. We love carving out interesting moments in every space and the stairs are a great opportunity to highlight the beautiful transition from one level to the other.

A couple of our favorite examples below…

This is one of our favorites we did for a clients entryway. The black and white stripe makes a bold statement.

Vintage Bohemian Stair Runner

We all fell involve with Hillary Duff’s Boho approved stair runner when Better Home and Gardens published her remodel. The witty take on a traditional element of design makes the space feel lively and brings a sense of much needed character. Her runner consists of 3 rugs, cut down and tailored into one. This concept is so simple you could do it with any rug! Whether its your grandma’s Persian rug you cant bare to get rid of your most recent Etsy find, you can easily have this bright, eclectic look. I have pulled a few of my favorite runners out there there right now to help you envision this in your space!

While Duff’s Pink aesthetic might be for everyone, we think this approach could be done in a variety of colors to bring the life back into space. See these unique colors below.
