How to Cover Stairs?

Answer

To cover stairs you can use full carpeting or just a runner. If you want to cover your stairs completely you can go to a home improvement store and buy carpeting. Measure the length of the stairs and then you can use a hammer and tacking nails to carpet the stairs. You can also just use a runner. Start at the top of the stairs and walk it down to the bottom of the landing. You will need to secure the runner so that it doesn't slide around.
