[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got these to use on my basement stairs to add a touch of decor on my bare wood stairs (no paint, stain or varnish). While they did make the stairs feel more inviting/homey, they did not stay in place. Each time someone would walk on the stairs they would move a little bit and some would even slip off the edge. This would make it look messy and unorganized. Like I mentioned, our basement stairs do not have any type of paint, stain or varnish so they don't have anything slippery about them. I would think you would also have to buy something to hold them in place - even though the backing of them appears to be non-skid. They do look nice as soon as you set them in place, just need a little more non-skid backing.
