We moved into a two story cape about a year ago, and immediately removed the dingy looking carpet runner on the stairs that led to the second floor. My concern lies with the fact that the exposed hardwood stairs (which LOOK great) are a bit of a safety hazard. We have a baby on the way, and walking down the stairs with our little bundle of joy has me concerned. Is there anything we can do to make the stairs a little safer? Is adding the runner back our best bet?
Any and all suggestions are welcomed!
