how did you do your stairs
we are finishing our basement...nothing fancy. We are considering leaving the underside of our stairway open. I painted the bottom of the steps and drywalled the back wall. Its a nice spot for the treadmill. I am now considering drywalling the bottom of the stairs. Going down the stairs is a single rail secured to the wall at the top of the stairs and to a 2X4 thats tied into the bottom of the stairway and the joist above. How have other folks made this look better or even safer..I can just see the kids hoping thru the side instead of going all the way down the stairs.
