New Oak Floor - Pine Steps Solution


I just put in a new engineered red oak floor (color - natural). Removing the carpet from the steps we found some pretty beat up pine treads. We would like to end up with oak steps and a carpet runner going upn the middle. Anyone have any thoughts on the best an most cost effective wat to acheive this.

Alternativell we would love any other ideas on how to finish with a nice look. At the moment we are thinking covering the steps with a neutral colored carpet is the cheapest and easiest way to go - but we really like the look of wood.

New Oak Floor - Pine Steps Solution


I had the same problem when I ripped out carpet on my stairs. I landed up painting the treads black, the risers white and then putting down a runner. Tried to sand/stain but it was too much work for only ok results.
