Just bought a 30 year old house that needs major updating!!! Which I am regreting because I have two kids until two and I can't get anything done!!!! So my wonderful husband is doing most of it on days off and after work. This is a curved staircase that we fell in love with...well the vision we have for it anyways. The railing needs to be replaced...it shakes and the carpet has to go! So my question is.... Any ideas?? Carpet on stairs??? Wainscotting?
