Rubber Stair Tread Ideas

Rubber stair treads are an excellent idea for heavy-traffic staircases, whether you’re looking to improve the stairs for your school, church, or even a home full of energetic children. Rubber stair treads can be used as indoor stair treads and outdoor stair treads (always read the product description to be sure), so they are a very versatile product.

If you are concerned that rubber stair treads will look too industrial try this clever design hack: Choose stair treads in a bright color to add fun and a high-design look to any space!

For floor protection, consider using a team color for a high school or college campus. Many startup offices are incorporating pops of color to encourage creativity and innovation — why not in the stairwell? At home, slips and falls can happen on basement stairs. Rubber stair treads are not slippery and can help prevent accidents. The texture of a rubber step is easier to climb for many aging pets as well. For basement stairs, you can choose a classic color that will match your decor or you can add personality with a fun color — like your child’s favorite color.

One cool idea you’ll find on the Koffler Sales site is to combine different shades of the same color to create an ombré staircase.
