Product Q&A

I have a bottom step of oak that has a round end on one side but not on the other side of the stairs. Could I add this side so I have 2 rounded edges of the bottom step? I was not planning on carpeting the steps but just put a runner on the steps. Would this addition be too obvious to add the rounded edge? The bottom step is new, but has a finish on it.

Hi Tim,
I think you would struggle to have the runner look good, while being able to cover the fact that one of the ends was separate from the main body of your steps. You could try it, but I think you’ll be better off getting an entirely new starting step.

Hi David,
I’ve just added an image that has the specific dimensions of our 8011 false starting step. I believe that will answer your question. Please let us know if there is anything else you need.
