Finishing basement stairs

cottonpennySeptember 15, 2012

We haven't even moved in yet and I'm already thinking of the next project...

What material do you have on your basement stairs?

Mine are just regular pine stair treads and risers.

I want to finish the basement as a playroom/exercise room. I'm thinking of that wood-look vinyl plank stuff. Or marmoleum?

But what do I do with the stairs - I don't really want carpet cause I can imagine people coming in from the (walkout) backyard and tracking dirt up the stairs and I hate vacuuming stairs. Is there any way to finish these with vinyl or laminate?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Forbo makes stair nosing for their Marmoleum.
