Carpet is one of those steadfast home additions that look great in any house, regardless of how classic or how contemporary it is. And if there's one spot that it always adds comfort, style and functionality, it's on your stairs! Ask any interior designer and they'll tell you that the right stair carpet can make the difference between a cohesive, beautiful home and one that seems to be lacking something—but don't just take our word for it! Come and take a look at some fabulous carpeted staircases and see which one really inspires to to take the leap and invest in some serious shag!

5. In a super neutral hallway, a cream carpet will work so well and add a lot of warmth. Be sure to choose an easy to clean variety though, as it WILl see a lot of traffic.

7. Having your stair carpet not quite reach down to the main hallway floor offers a lovely way to showcase the natural wood of the stairs themselves.

8. A wide carpet runner for your stairs will always give the look of a more generous space. We love the ecru material and natural wood combination here.

9. Now here's a great idea! Having carpet just on the stair treads has created such a sense of ceremony to the whole staircase and let's the wood draw a lot of attention.

10. We all know that grey is seriously cool right now, so what better colour for your stair carpet? It'll hide any foot traffic dirt as well! Double win!

11. How amazing does this stair carpet, which is a total tonal match for the hallway flooring, look? There is such an easy flow between flooring finishes!

12. You might be tempted to choose a hardwearing carpet for your stairs, but if a deep-pile with a velvety finish is what you really crave, dare to install it! Just have a no-shoes rule!
