I spent a very long time looking through all the options for stair treads and realized that Dean Flooring Company was the best place to focus - they seem to have invented the whole concept! They had far and away the best variety as well as the quality. I was pleased by the idea of having a non-slip stair tread that didn't need to be nailed down or taped, and wouldn't mar the floors. These that I ordered are perfect. The color blends easily with other rugs. The texture of the carpet is very attractive and a perfect match with nearby carpeting. They are easy to lay down and pick up. Best of all, our dog has no hesitation to walk or step on them. I am very pleased!
