I posted in flooring,but didn't get many responses.

We upgraded the stairs, all oak, stained to match the foyer floor, (3 1/4 planks, coffee bean stain). No carpet on the landing, turned stairs. In the future the spindles will be changed to iron. Double bullnose railing.

It comes with a runner, but I am thinking of not putting it on.

Have 2 boys, 6yr, 8yr. Current stairs are wood, with carpet runner.

Should we put in the runner, or no? Will the boys slip w/o runner?

RE: Staircase

I read this same concern in another post about slippery stairs. They wanted hardwood without the carpet but wanted to make them safer. I have attached the thread. Someone suggested the use of Bona Traffic Anti-Slip. Might want to look into it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Slippery stairs solution
