Good Questions: Attractive Anti-Slip Porch Stairs?

Good Questions: Attractive Anti-Slip Porch Stairs?

Last November we did a renovation of our porch. We picked a T&G Mahogany Flooring that looks beautiful and blends great with the beige and brown colors of our house. However, when it rains or snows the floor gets very slippery and becomes a dangerous surface to walk on. I cover the walking area of the porch with rugs but the stairs are still an issue. I know I could use 3M Anti Slip Tape but I refuse to cover my floor and to break the color harmony with any gray or black tones. Any other solutions? Thanks, Lilly

There are lots of removable rubber treads that are decorative but the Anti-Slip Tape seems the best solution. Perhaps cutting the tape into a pattern that coordinates with your style would make it more attractive? Have you considered cutting the tape into circles? Thinner stripes? A careful custom cut will make the anti-slip function part of the style instead of hindering it.

Anyone else?
