From carpet to tile and oak stained wood. Easy cleanup, no fuss not muss no wear and tear stairs!

    I am going to do the same thing. I need to get rid of the carpet in my main room anyway. Maybe just tile the treads and paint the riser?

    Although the tile work is very good, I would have done all wood. It just gives the space a warmer look.

    Did you remove origional treads or install oak over the top?

    Arthur, I had carpet originally, so I removed the carpet and what was underneath was particle board stairs, I attached the new oak treads to the particle board with construction glue and nails and then only had to attach plywood to the riser to then apply the tile to the riser. It is very sturdy and has held up very well for 6 years.

    Did you use regular vinyl, or peel & stick tiles? Looks nice!

    Sandy B, they are real tiles, we had to lay them grout them on to the riser. They are NOT peel and stick.

    Ana - I've been planning to do this to my stairs for a long time. However, I was told by Home Depot and Lowe's reps that I would need to use cement backer board anytime I'm installing tiles. That was a letdown because it is hard for me to work with, cut and heavy.
