Hi All,

Thought I'd put this one to the forum.

Pretty much the last internal piece to our extension jigsaw is how to complete/finish the new staircase...

We originally thought carpet but with a contemporary feel and different colours of (engineered) wood at the top and bottom of the staircase is there another option?

I'm guessing you can't stain this wood?

Paint it a light grey or white perhaps?

Any ideas or photos welcome!

The quality of the photos is pretty poor, they look like MDF. I can't see any grain.

I guess you could paint them and use a stair runner carpet. I can't however recall ever seeing MDF treads and risers before. It might be normal, but I have never seen it before.

Thanks opps.

Yes, MDF unfortunately hence why I thought just paint or have the runner carpet as you suggest.

Any other suggestions? I'm thinking white would be OK as we won't be wearing shoes.

There are laminate style cladding kits plus hardwood ones.
You could keep costs down/ choose for style by painting the risers white, but facing the treads with laminate/ hardwood/ carpet.
