DIY: Replacing Stair Flooring


My eyes are bigger than my stomach.

I bit off more than I can chew.

I replaced the flooring on the staircase in my home.

I did a lot of research before I ripped up the carpeting on my staircase in my home. Almost every single article, DIY instructions, or video said, “You should hire this out.” Sounded like a challenge to me. PS. They were right.

Don’t get me wrong, I did it! And it looks good, but wow was it a chore! When I replaced our flooring upstairs it was a chore, but I could make a bad cut every now and then and know that I’d be able to cover it up because it was near a wall and would get covered up with quarter rounds. Not with stairs. Every cut must be precise.

I’d love to say that I took notes, and that I could provide step by step instructions on how to do this yourself, but instead, I’ll just let you marvel in the glory that is my laminate wood stairs.



Here are some of my resources, in case you too, bite off more than you can chew:
