Carpet Studs: The Affordable Way to Give Your Staircase a Makeover

Carpet Studs: The Affordable Way to Give Your Staircase a Makeover

When redecorating your home, it’s very easy to ignore those little things.

Having a stair carpet runner and a set of quality stair rods is a great start, but have you ever considered carpet studs? They’re not always necessary, but if you want to extend your carpet from the staircase to the landing, or have it turn a corner, carpet studs are nearly essential. Let’s take a look at the benefits of carpet studs in more detail.

The elegant alternative to naplocks

If you’ve ever seen a carpet meet hard flooring at the top of a staircase, you might also have a seen a naplock. These are metal strips which can be something of an eyesore, although they do serve a practical purpose. Well, if you’re even considering the use of single naplocks, we’d urge you to check out our range of Easy Stud carpet studs first. These discreet yet attractive studs can be pressed directly through the carpet runner and into hard flooring, creating a firm connection that’s just as good as any naplock.

Keeping underlay where it belongs

Another key use for carpet studs is to ensure that carpet underlay doesn’t become visible at a carpet’s edges. When underlay is deployed, it can sometimes shift over time, slowly edging its way out of one side or the other – which can detract from your carefully crafted interior design. Using carpet studs is an excellent alternative in this case. They can be quickly installed and will hold the underlay in place indefinitely.

Turning the corner with carpet studs

If there’s one thing that conventional carpet installation methods haven’t perfected, it’s going around corners. With a winding staircase, having a carpet take a turn in this way is often essential – and carpet studs are the perfect tool to assist. Simply press a few of these neat carpet studs around the curve of the carpet and it’ll stay safe and secured for as long as you need it to. Each of these carpet studs is designed to stand the test of time, resisting things like scuffs from shoes thanks to the superb finishes. Options for this include Chrome, Pewter, Antique Brass, and more.
