Question by lauracalifgirl: Where can I get a modern carpet runner for cheap?I have off white carpet on my stairs and I am looking to find a modern runner to put on it since it is such a high traffic area. I have priced runners at rug stores, but they are so expensive. Does anyone have any ideas on what else I should use? I was told that I should go to a fabric store and get material there because it may be cheaper. Does anyone think that would work? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Fabric on carpet is nothing but a tripping hazard unless it’s glued or taped down, neither of those will last and glue will probably damage your carpet. I have no idea what you mean by a modern runner. If something plain will work, you might try a building supply place, where they sell runner carpet by the foot off a roll. I don’t know if it’s cheaper than what the carpet stores have.
