When you think stair rods what may come to mind first is the exquisite detail associated with home building in the Victorian Era. They were actually common into the 1930's and were often referred to as the "jewelry of the stair". Today there is actually renewed interest in using stair rods because they add a rich accent by highlighting a runner and enhance the overall appearance of your staircase.
Back in that time stair rods were functional and they were used to hold Stair Runners in place. They were what you used before the invention of tack strips and non-slip carpet pads. They also allowed you to move the runner around for even carpet wear as well as remove it for cleaning. With today's installation methods you don't need a stair rod to hold your stair runners in place but there is a renewed interest in using them because they offer a beautiful finishing touch to the staircase and really enhance the design overall.
