What to do with stairs?
Hey all. I wasn't quite sure where to put this, but I figured I'd ask here since my house was built in 1910!!!
The stairs to the outside are stumping me. As is typical of most older homes up here, the house is actually about 3-4 feet off the ground. So, there are stairs going from the main floor to the ground level, and then the ground level to the basement. The ones going from the first floor to the second are carpeted.
What do you all think? I could put carpet going down the stairs, and then the stairs to the basement, but is it silly having the part of the staircase that goes outside be carpet?
I can put laminate slate down...love real slate but it won't work on those stairs (we would need to put mortar on the stairs then apply the tile).
I can't put hardwood down because it would not match the rest of the house.
What do you all think? Any ideas?
