We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. While they may be beautiful, staircases made from wood, marble, and tile can also be rather slippery, especially for pets and kids. But by adding a set of these carpet stair treads, you can ensure safe footing for your family and guests. Whether you prefer neutral, understated solids or striking, colorful designs, our list includes an option you'll love, and some of them can even be used outdoors. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best carpet stair tread on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 26, 2018:

In addition to style, we also considered durability and ease of maintenance when making our selections. The Ottomanson Softy earned the top spot for their superior nonslip properties and affordable price. Added the House, Home and More Attachable, Soloom Specialized, and Casa Pura Protectors because they can be fastened to stairs using adhesive backings or hook-and-loop strips. Also included the Bungalow Waterhog and Gloria Rug Mats as options that can be used outdoors.
