Article on Stairs | The Silkroad


It is easy to overlook your staircase, but it is often the first part of your home that visitors see when they walk through the front door. Creating a warm and inviting focal point, making a statement and having some fun has never been easier with the vast choice of striking and exciting carpeting available today to create that lasting impression.

Staircases compliment bold designs because they stand alone from other areas of your homes, and as such won’t overtake or clash with other flooring or colour schemes. Originally designer-led and limited, the industry has moved forward significantly to offer vast opportunities to ensure your staircase becomes a feature. Stripes, spots, tartans and herringbone designs are all readily available with many manufacturer’s producing complimenting plain products for hallways and landings.

So much choice can be daunting which is why independent retailers, such as The Silkroad Interiors and Flooring based in Haslemere, Surrey are passionate about the importance of rising above the faceless medium of the internet and offer the highest levels of service and specialist, impartial advice to ensure clients are fully informed with their decision- making.
