A riddle: What can take a beating but look classy enough to make a great first impression? How about…. patterned Entry Stair carpet?
To the right and left of the front door this Plano home had great formals, but straight ahead was a blah stairway.
Options? Carpet was a proven plus as far as noise reduction and safety. Carpet is not as slippery as hardwood. First impression aesthetics were important, but it would have to wear well. Stairs take a beating.
We also knew that the selection of a patterned carpet would be a little tricky as three oriental carpets were visible from the front door: The Living Room, Dining Room and the entry doorway.
We picked up samples at Allen Prosource to look at on site.
For the Front stairs we chose a black and camel damask-like pattern.
While we were “playing stairs” we decided to replace the carpet on the back stairs also. For the staircase off the kitchen/Family Room we chose a more tailored pattern.
