A carpet runner is used to protect your hardwood flooring and is used for more traffic areas. Not only a carpet runner protects your precious flooring but also it adds a new dimension to the overall décor of your room. The carpet runner is knotted with pile or woven without pile. An elegant carpet runner can transform the most average of staircases into a stunning centerpiece in your home. Carpet runners with designer patterns, that give the feel of a texture rather than a design, are a better choice for high traffic areas.
There are many options when you consider carpet runners. And they vary in size as well. The carpet runners are used both in home as well as commercial premises. Most of the carpet runners are available in any size from about 2' x 5' to 3'+ x 20'+. Most carpet runners measure about 2'6" wide. Carpet runners can be as narrow as 2' or wider than 3', but as widths differ from 2'6", the number of runners decreases. There is a small inclination for runner width to increase as runner length increases. It is not uncommon, for instance, to find 18' or 20' runners that measure 2'8" or 2'9" in width.
