The best underlays for stairs are extremely durable and can take a beating. This is because your stairs (along with your landing and hallway) typically experiences the highest foot traffic in your home.
You therefore want a underlay that is highly dense and can ‘spring back’, otherwise you will find your carpet quickly deteriorates or flattens in areas where you tread often.
So, what should you be looking for? Well, we would generally recommend a thickness between 6mm and 9mm, with a density rating of at least 110kg/m³.
The stair underlays below fit the bill, and have been handpicked by our experts for their quality and longevity. So, whether you’re fitting full carpet or a stair runner, you won’t go wrong.
