    Nice work! Is that actually hardwood on the basement floor or one of the new products that looks like hardwood and works in basements?

    Nikki, that is not the basement and yes it is hardwood. I had to stain the treads to match it as the wood floors were already in and I was trying to unify the look. I put tile in the foyer upstairs and then 'unified the tile look with the wood downstairs

    Ahhh, I see now. I want my own basement finished so badly that I guess I think everything is a basement! LOL! Your stairs are lovely.

    Sheila G, I sued tile at the turn because in truth it was 'easier' for me to work with than the wood and also for cleaning purposes and scratching, I did not know how much the wood would scratch and was afraid it would wear down more in that turn corner

    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.

    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

    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.
