Traditional rugs are not very fashionable these days. In fact, most homes don’t have any rugs at all. Most modern and contemporary homes prefer wooden floors of tiles. And since we all have to adapt to these changes, we often find ourselves with old rugs and we don’t know what to do with. But if you have a house of lots that include a stairwell, we have an idea of a very creative project for you.You can use old rugs or even blankets to create rails for the stairwell. It’s actually a very interesting and original and for me it’s the first time I hear about it. It’s not a bad idea at all. This way you don’t have to throw away the rugs that you have used for so many years and you can repurpose them. The project is actually very simple and no instructions are needed.
All you have to do is take the rug or blanket, preferably more than one if you want to cover the whole stairwell, and figure out the dimensions and a way to cut them. Then cut them in smaller pieces and staple the pieces to the stairwell. It would be very easy if the stairwell is made of wood. For metal or other types of materials it’s going to be a little more complicated but not impossible. You’ll just have to adapt your design and ideas to the circumstances.
