Renovating your staircase? Best Flooring Options for Stairs

The staircase is a high-traffic area in every house with daily movement up and down. As a result, stairs are a focal point in a home and a highly visible space that necessitates both style and a durable flooring material. Since staircases are not susceptible to water, a variety of flooring materials may be used.

Things to consider when installing flooring on the staircase

  1. Consider the flooring in your upstairs and downstairs rooms when selecting a product for your staircase. You should think about your budget; there are high priced, medium-priced, and low-priced flooring materials available.
  2. Consider how easy will it be to clean? Do you want a stairwell that you have to vacuum or mop?
  3. Noise. If there is a lot of noise near the stairs such as living areas like dens or living rooms, Carpet can be a big benefit from noise muffling flooring so you don’t have to hear people going up and down the staircase all the time.
  4. Safety. The protection of your material is on of the most important considerations. Keep an eye out for a non-slippery surface. Look for stair materials that provide extra traction if you have children or someone with restricted mobility in your house.
  5. Style. Take into account the area around the stairs, as well as the design and scale of the stairs themselves. In a traditional home, large, sweeping stairs in wood or tile look fantastic. Carpeting may be more fitting in a carpeted den.

The benefits of each flooring material for your staircase:

Laminate is a cost – effective solution that comes in a variety of types and colors. You can also pick a laminate that resembles wood or is textured for added traction. In high-traffic areas, laminate stairs are easy to clean and repair.

Carpet Carpeted stairs have more stability and are easier on the feet than hard surfaces. Carpet flooring can also provide a wider range of color and pile options. You may also opt for a completely carpeted stair or a carpet runner over the wood floor.

Tile is ideal for narrow stairwells and outdoor stairwells. In basements and mudrooms, tile is simple to clean and has a distinctive and appealing appearance.

Hardwood stairs have a timeless appearance that complements almost every décor. Hardwood stairs are long-lasting and secure if you use non-slip treads or other measures to prevent the smooth surface from being slippery.
