You can easily cover your stairs with any of our laminate solutions. It is essential the steps of your staircase must be flat square and not rounded.

If they are rounded you could achieve a flatter look by using a power tool to cut off the rounded edge and make the steps flush. Don’t worry about the finished look, when ordering your laminate you will choose a laminate nosing strip in a matching colour, during installation this nosing strip will be installed over the cut off rounded edge, giving a streamlined finish to your new laminated staircase.
