Installation of Carpet on Stairs

There are two methods of installing carpet on the stair: waterfall or French cap. The waterfall method involves simply bending the carpet over the edge of the stair and bringing it straight down to meet the tread of the next step. It is an easy and fast way to install the carpet, and for this reason, many new home builders use this method.

The French cap method wraps the carpet around the edge of the stair and tucks it under the lip, contouring to the shape of the step. This method may require more time and skill on the part of the installer but presents a tailored look that you may prefer.
