There are a variety of advantages to having Carpet Runners in your home. They are great for protecting your hardwood floors against wear and tear, while making their surface less slippery. Carpet Runners are relatively easy to clean, as opposed to traditional carpets. In the event that your runner should be damaged or worn, all you have to do is remove it and buy another one without replacing a whole room with carpet or wood flooring. Carpet Runners are a less expensive way to drastically change the look of a room.
