Patterned carpet can add a decorative element to your ladder for less money than a total renovation. Patterned carpet is generally more durable than plush carpets, and that it is not matted down or compressed in time as much as its counterpart plush. Laying patterned carpet in your stairs require a few hours of work to be done right. However, the project is a realistic do-it-yourself effort requiring only basic materials. Measure the total length and width of the stairs with a tape measure. Remove any old carpet or padding of the stairs.

Put less sticky strips on the bottom of each step and the back of each tread. The teeth of the vertical strips need face down while the treads have teeth they face away from you. Carpet strips are attached to each step to keep it in place. Lay padding between the two tacks strips less about what happens on the tread and down the riser of each step, which effectively connects the two strips together. Re-measure the width of the mat and make a chalk line around half-inch from the edge.

This is where the carpet is folded at the facility. Verify that actually fit the patterned carpet the stairs before continuing. Traveler the back of the carpet emblazoned with a knife along each line of chalk and fold inward making it more flexible. Slide the bottom edge of the carpet under less sticky strip down the elevator, leaving about an inch extra carpet at the end so you can get on. Fold the carpet on the stairs and overhangs of the tread. Wedge against the carpet tack strips-less and keep climbing the stairs in this way until you reach the top.
