Chic Entertainment Room: popcorn and movies in style

Entertainment rooms are a great place to come together with family or friends to enjoy a good movie or enjoy tasty snacks and refreshments. In a recent project, Butter Lutz Interiors with Schroeder Carpet, created an ultra-stylish and chic media room with dark, rich grays. Using Milliken’s Delicate Frame, Butter Lutz created a cozy but stylish room.  The carpet, purchased through Schroeder, is a low pile Stainmaster nylon. This carpet is great for high traffic areas and is easily cleanable.

Milliken has some wonderful and fun designs. The company layers patterns upon patterns to create imaginative designs. The muted colors create perfect palettes for your home or office. Explore Milliken’s designs here.

emma gardner design: custom area rugs for a unique you

Emma Gardner Design‘s custom area rug collection is at Schroeder! This collection features vibrant designs that range for geometric to flower designs. Gardner’s area rugs are 100% hand knotted Tibetan wool and silk and certified by GoodWeave. (Side note: GoodWeave’s founder Kailash Satyarthi won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for his effort to end child labor.)

Back to Emma! Though each design in her collection has been carefully crafted with an artistic eye, customers can make changes to the size, color and material (wool v silk) so that the rug can perfectly fit the size, mood or use of a space. Customers can even create their own design! With the help of Gardner, you can create your own piece of handcrafted art work.

Below are examples from her gorgeous collection. egd14 egd13 egd12 egd11 egd10 egd9 egd8 egd7 egd6 egd5 egd4 egd2 egd1

Stair runner: is it right for you?

Many people who have hardwood floors with staircases at some point ask, do I need a stair runner?

For some, a stair runner is a solution to a practical problem. Many customers call to say they have a child that is starting to walk and they are worried they may fall on (or even down) the stairs. Others are concerned about slipping on the wood while going down the stairs or the noise caused by shoes when going up and down stairs.  For all of these concerns, a stair runner is a great solution. Yes, a stair runner is a great way to muffle the sounds and soften wood stairs.

For others, a stair runner is a solution to an aesthetic problem. Some people, just don’t like bare stairs. A stair runners only purpose can be that it warms up the space. Plain wood stairs can be cold and stark. A stair runner can be like eye candy in a living room, a focal point in a hallway and an attention-getter in the foyer.

Stair runners can be practical, fun, whimsical, sophisticated, brazen and beautiful. Schroeder makes custom stair runners. You want wool or nylon? Pink or blue? Flowers or stripes? We have it all AND anything is possible. Take a look at some of the past stair runners we have done for our wonderful clients. Each of these were custom made for the client and installed by our professional team. Enjoy!

Zebra Staircase: two different ways to carpet the stairs

We recently installed Masland‘s Kenya in Sterling for a client’s set of stairs. We installed both wall-to-wall carpet for a staircase and a stair runner. What’s the difference? Take a look below.

Wall-to-wall carpeting for a stair case:

As you can see in the photo below, the stairs are bare. Our installers have removed the existing carpet and have installed new pad on the tops of the stairs.

In these photos, the installers are in the process of installing the carpet wall-to-wall on the staircase. The carpet is going from wall to wall.



Look how great it looks:







Stair runner:


For the bottom set, the client only needed a stair runner. A stair runner allows you to still enjoy the beauty of the wood while also enjoying the comfort and safety of a stair runner. Like all stair runners, this one is custom made.







Schroeder is located near downtown Austin on South Lamar Boulevard. We are open Monday – Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Call and make an appointment so that we can help you find the best solution for your stairs!
