I am going crazy trying to figure out what kind of carpet runner to buy for
my stairs. I want an oriental pattern since it hides dirt better. But my
main concern is the products resistance to matting and flattening.
Choices are wool (best), nylon (good synthetic with resistance to matting),
and poly's (not good with matting).
In my area, the poly's look and feel is much denser which to me translates
to good resistance with matting. The $25/ft wool and $18/ft nylon's I've
seen aren't as dense. The exception to that are expensive wool's like
Karastan which for about $65 per linear foot.
So do I go with what appears to be a dense poly which on sale will run me
about $600 or a Karastan which will run me almost $1700.
I'd very much appreciate any input you can offer.
