If its temporary, for a party or something, buy the sticky clear plastic roll. If its more permanent, just nail it down (minimal nails), and you can remove the nails when you remove the runner

    If it’s for a set of stairs and it is a nice runner…Call a professional. It will probably cost aroud $ 75.

    stairs are tough because when you walk on the runner you typically move them,

    when laying runners on stairs you need to center the rug all the way down,if in one piece, and you need an electric staple gun(I use a bostich) to shoot the staples under the lip and at the front of the stairs………..
    its not hard but experience defiantly helps……….
