There is no doubt about the fact that hardwood stairs add tremendous aesthetic appeal and value to your home. From straight to curved to a winding, elegant staircase, the look of natural wood paired with architectural beauty is something that every homeowner wants to have.
Hardwood stairs do take quite the beating, however. With everyday use, they will eventually wear down and need reviving. There are things you can do to help breathe life back into your stairs and even transform carpeted stairs into gorgeous hardwood stairs.
