Decorative Stair Hardware

Decorative Stair Hardware is a beautiful added design element.

The Stair Runner Store carries a large selection of decorative stair hardware also referred to as stair rods.  Although we can source other stair hardware products, those on the site are a collection that we sell most often and represent the best value among other options. These are 100% Brass, Made in the USA. Sold as a set: Standard options include a Lever Bracket with hidden screws, 36″ long 1/2″ Diameter Rod/Tube, and a choice of 5 Finial Designs. Upgraded Options include cutting to size, a 48″ Length, and Reed or Rope Style Designs. Aside from these upgrades, the finish choice has an impact on the price with polished brass being the least expensive option.

 –  Decorative stair hardware is NOT intended for runner installation

The runner should be secured by other means, typically using a carpet tacker – a high powered stapler designed specifically for installing carpet on stairs. A stair runner may also be installed using tack strips. Please contact us with any questions.
