Stair carpet clips are an alternative to stair rods. They are an attractive, decorative accessory, which add a touch of elegant style to a staircase. Fitted at the bottom of the riser on each step, they neatly trim the edge of a runner, providing a feature and accent to a staircase.
Carpet clips are designed to be fitted with runner carpet only, rather than a fully fitted carpet. They do not hold the runner in place but are purely decorative. Therefore, an alternative means of securely fitting the carpet or runner to the stairs is required, such as gripper or adhesive. For further information about fitting a stair runner, it is best to contact a qualified carpet fitter.
Inspired by the stair clips of yesteryear, the Victorian Stair Clip is made from solid brass and features a classic, fleur-de-lys design. It is sold in pairs and offered in a choice of nine metal finishes: brass, antique and satin brass, black, chrome and brushed chrome, pewter, polished and satin nickel.
This can be undertaken by a do-it-yourself enthusiast or ask a trained carpet fitter.
The Victorian Stair Clips are supplied with an invisible lacquer. This means that the finish will not tarnish in time and there is therefore no need to clean them, other than a quick dust.
