Get easy DIY tips on how to install carpet on steps or stairs in your house in this free online home improvement video.
After you’ve cut the piece of carpet, I want to show you how to install the test strips on each individual step. Now, after you have your carpet cut, you just want to lay it in place. Make sure it fits right and it’s not too long. And you tuck the bottom edge in behind the next piece of carpet, behind the lower piece of carpet. And wrap it around the step. Make sure that it kind of catches on some of the tack strip. And then you’ll need to get yourself one of these, which is just a hand held carpet stretcher. And you just place it a half inch from the wall and hit it with the handle of a hammer and tack the carpet down onto the tack strip…hopefully- as long as your tack strips are good. And that would be how you would install each individual step on a staircase.
