If your stair treads have a bullnose edge, then stapling right up under that edge gives you nice definition and also a very secure edge to the carpet. You can staple under the bullnose whether you have fully carpeted stairs, as in this photo, or a runner. It will work either way.
Children aren’t the only reason you should consider using a stair runner on wood stairs. I will never forget how we removed worn carpeting from our wood stairs. To our dismay, we found that our older dog could no longer get up the stairs to our bedroom at night because he couldn’t get a grip on the more slippery wooden stairs. He would cry at the bottom of the stairs wanting to be with us. Oddly enough, we did not install a stair runner; we began sleeping downstairs. That’s just the weird kind of animal lovers we are. Anyway, having carpeting on your stairs makes them safer for your pets too
