Choice Of Stair Carpet Paving Methods

Share This Post

1. Fix directly with glue
Advantages: strong, low installation cost, the rough stair surface can be laid directly if it is leveled;
Disadvantages: There is a certain smell, and the smell needs to be dispersed after installation. Sisters who are very sensitive to smells should choose carefully; if the stair surface is made of stone, ceramic tiles, floors, etc., there will be a lot of glue residue, and the glue will need to be removed when replacing or removing the carpet later.
2. Double-sided tape fixation
Advantages: Easy to install, less residue on stone, ceramic tiles, floors and other stair surfaces, easy to clean;
Disadvantages: Not suitable for carpets that are too thick. If the quality of the double-sided tape is not good, the carpet surface may become hollow in the future and the double-sided tape must be re-attached.
3. Installation of nail strips and bottom pads
Advantages: beautiful, comfortable and sturdy;
Disadvantages: High installation cost, side panels or shields are required on both sides of the stairs, nails will be driven into the ground, and it is not suitable for floors, stones, and floor tiles.
4. The last method, which is less commonly used, is to cover the stairs with a layer of wood board, and then nail the carpet to the wood board.
Advantages: Easy to install, no glue required;
Disadvantages: Because wood panels need to be fixed, they are only suitable for rough stairs.

Carpet surface selection for stair carpets:
Cut velvet is softer and more comfortable, while loop velvet is firmer and more wear-resistant.
Compared with cut-pile carpets, loop-pile carpets are more wear-resistant and richer in layers and texture. The sizes, arrangements, and combinations of loops are also diverse.
If the stairs in your home are at a 90-degree angle, and you choose a loop pile carpet with loops arranged horizontally and vertically, then there is a high probability that the gap between the two rows of loops will coincide with the sun angle during the paving process. Indeed, very ugly.

1. Select cut pile carpets
2. Choose a carpet surface with a combination of large and small circles or a carpet surface with misaligned and diagonally arranged circles or a carpet surface with a large circle structure. This can avoid the phenomenon of bottom exposure due to the neat arrangement of small circles.
One last reminder:
When calculating the area of stair carpets, keep the direction consistency and leave more margin. This can ensure that the carpet texture is consistent and there will be no color differences. It can also avoid insufficient carpet area during on-site installation, resulting in splicing on the tread surface or facade. In this case, with later use, the splicing will become obvious and affect the appearance. Normally, the splicing of full-covered carpets on stairs is in the dark corners and cannot be seen.
