So you want a stair runner but you have winding stairs? Tricky? Nothing is straight forward is it? Well, maybe we can help. (We are pretty sure we are the only place on the internet that provides this service.)
If you have winding stairs - also called winders, pie-shaped stairs or kite stairs you cannot fit a straight runner to them. Without going to far into the mathematics of it, those stairs are wider than the straight stairs and so you are going to need a special cut.
To work out the shape you need those stairs need to be templated. It can be a DIY undertaking but if you are not practically minded or you don't have the time or patience them probably best to employ the services of a carpet fitter who can do it for you.
You will need templating paper, a pencil, sticky tape and a tape measure and or a ruler.
We have a made a video for you here on how to template winding stairs for a runner.
Once you have made the template, pop it in the post and send it here:
Fenston Carter C/O Cavendish deVere
Zeal House, Unit 19, 8 Deerpark Road
London SW19 3UU. United Kingdom
If it all gets too much you can reach out to us on WhatsApp with a video or image of the staircase along with the measurements you want the width of the runner to be.
We will take it form there and be back in touch.
Don't forget you name and contact details!
We will attach a border or whip the edges depending on what you want and then send it back to you made along with you runner. Hey look, we know you might want some hand-holding here so by all means get in touch and we will help you.
