Roll Runner or Stair Runner material is manufactured in a narrow width on a long roll. This material can be cut to custom lengths and is sold by the linear foot for use in hallways or anywhere a long/narrow rug is needed. The distinction is not the material itself, rather the place where it is used.
A long narrow rug (runner) made in a ready made size is typically limited to about 7 to 8 feet in length but may be referred to as a hall runner – however a roll runner is much more versatile since it can be cut and finished to your desired length for a longer hall or other space.
When using runner material for a hall or any runner which will end on a floor or landing surface – the runner will need an end finish. Please Click Here to learn about end finishes.
