Why You Should Refinish Your Stairs

Have you seen the latest trends for staircases? You have endless possibilities for redesigning stairs, though all of the trendiest designs are hardwood.

Below, we explain the rationale for refinishing your staircase:


Compared to carpeted stairways, hardwood stairs last longer and endure daily use better. Carpet tends to tear, stain, and collect allergens, especially on heavily-trafficked staircases. Yet hardwood suffers none of these issues and can even retain its handsome appearance for years with the proper protection.

Since stairways are often high-traffic areas, their building material will experience a degree of wear and tear. That said, fading color, scratches, and other signs of use are more common on hardwood stairs than on hardwood flooring. However, this provides a perfect opportunity to refinish and restyle your hardwood stairs.


Hardwoods remain timeless, yet different stains go in and out of style. Small updates to your staircase—including staining your treads, risers, and banister—can make a huge difference. We recommend making such updates while you refinish your worn stairway.

The professionals at Virginia Top Floors can match the stain on your staircase’s treads to that on its banisters or adjacent flooring. We can also choose hardwood flooring colors that complement the rest of your home. Keeping up with trends helps maintain your home’s style and value.


The layout of most homes makes staircases one of the first things visitors see in a home. That said, a grand stairway can provide a fantastic first impression for both guests and potential buyers.

If you're trying to sell your home, a refinished staircase may boost your home’s value. Yet new stairs can also deliver high homeowner satisfaction in the form of personal use and impressing guests. At Virginia Top Floors, we’ll consider the style as well as safety, usability, and durability of your stairs for you, your family, guests, and buyers.
