the traditional carpet rods from the beginning of the 19th century and come in six different designs, including the classic “acorn” of the Lancaster and the readily recognised “ball” of the Windsor.  Stairrods (UK), which manufactures the rods, has just introduced three new finishes to give the range a stunning make-over.  Polished Nickel, Brushed Chrome and Antique Bronze finishes are all available in the six designs and look simply stunning!

Antique bronze is a beautiful, rich tone and works well with ever popular tonal carpets, naturals, beiges and brown runners and looks stunning adjacent to the soft hues of natural stone floors.


When choosing which finish of stair carpet rods you would like, we suggest you consider:

  • The colour of your carpet
  • The finish of other decorative accessories in your home e.g. door furniture
  • the finish of door thresholds you may already have
  • The lighting on your stairs – if it is a gloomy area, then choosing something highly polished and bright will stand out e.g. the new Polished Nickel finish.
