stair runners advice needed
we plan to have low berber-like carpet in our upstairs. Currently, our stairs are all hardwood. I want to have the look of a runner rug on the stairs, so would choose to have the carpet bound on both sides of the edges and expose wood on either side of the steps. Would it look funny to do a different carpet on the stairs from the upstairs? Something more rug-like for the runner, or should I try to match the upstairs?
