Stair Safety, A Must for every home

I was lucky to try a new product for our stairs recently.
And it couldn't have come at a better timing too.

During Sophia's birthday party outdoors, we had a small accident involving the stairs.

These steps

One of our friend slipped going up these steps and luckily someone was behind her and caught her from behind! 

It would've been a bad fall indeed so I knew I had to install something to avoid any slippage and accidents from happening again.

We tried these in the past...

Grip Tape (Not our stairs but similar to what we had)

But this happened to ours too
So when I was contacted by HANDI-TREADS to try out their non-slip tread, I jumped at the chance!

Our stairs went from this...

.. to This...

Actually, before I agreed to doing this post for the company,
I researched a bit about Handi Treads myself.

I love the fact that this product will not wear out with repeated use and that " Its raised button surface grips on to your shoe or foot and provides instant traction"!

You don't have to do a lot of reading, but maybe this video will help you understand why I think this is such a lifesaver...

Installing was a breeze. You just need a drill and viola - piece of mind on the steps!

Now, we are assured of safe steps on this especially come summer time when the pool is open and everyone is wet going up and down these steps!!!!

Just wanted to share with you our family Halloween photo

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

  1. What a great idea and product. Now you can be sure everyone is safe.

  2. We have wooden deck steps and they can be tricky in the rain. Great to peek!

  3. There's nothing like peace of mind. :) Glad you found something that works for you!

  4. Love this idea Vel. We've used the tape before too but it didn't last. I'll definitely check these out. :)

  5. Oh my gosh - I was at a client's house this week and they have these super steep stone steps up to their house. It was raining and I totally thought I was going to fall as I was leaving. These strips would be an excellent idea for them!

  6. Thanks for the tips, Criste! I guess you are pretty sure now that everybody will be safe at each party:D... Good job!
    Going on a different topic, I see that you are so interested in interior design, that’s why I would like to invite you to explore our rug world here Each Sukhi rug is unique. All rugs are made from natural materials by the hands of local makers from Nepal, India, Turkey and Morocco. I hope you will like them!:)

  7. Vel! Thanks for posting this! I am saving this so I can purchase some for our home. With two very active boys, this is always a concern.

  8. Looks like a wonderful product! I will check these out when I get a chance!


Thank you for reading my blog! Hope you can stop by again sometime! Have a Wonderful Day!!
