Trim on Stairs


Just looking for opinions on how other would finish the spot pictured below where the stairs and the drywall meet. I am going to be putting hardwood down, with two pieces on the risers. A reducer will be cut to vertically finish the open end of the riser. I just wondering if putting a thin piece of trim over every vertical reducer and the drywall is going to look funny.
Does anyone have any other ideas/photos of how they have done this? (I do still have to remove the nosing)
Thanks

Trim on Stairs


I'm confused, nothing new about that, is the plan to remove the the OSB risers you have now?
If not it may throw off your tread and riser heights.
Why would use use 2 pieces of hard wood for the risers and not just one soild piece. With two there's a chance the gap may open up.
Did I read your post wrong, your planing on using hardwood flooring to make the treads?
Why not laminated hard wood treads? Trying to use narrow pieces of flooring will not work out.

Trim on Stairs


I think my first message was confusing, I have all the proper pre made pieces for the tread and riser. My question is more about where the hardwood will meet drywall on the open end of the riser, whats the best way to make this look good, is it just trim to cover the unfinished look or is there a better way?
