    How time consuming and difficult is it to do this? One set of my stairs is tiled and the other is carpeted. We hate carpet so The Woman wants it to match these ones.

    Going to be time consuming with all the tile cuts required. You will need a good quality tile cutter. The silver metal edge trim used at the stair tread nosing is from a company called Schluter Products and can be purchased online or at a local tile retailer. I agree, carpet on stairs is hard to maintain.

    Yup lots of work in the layout and cuts, but can look great when competed.

    As others said, lots of cuts. Take the time to lay it out exactly the way you want all the way up the stairs and see what you like. I prefer symmetry to different sized tiles at the edges but others don’t. Some people prefer that the tiles staggered so there aren’t continuous grout lines that your eyes naturally follow when you are see the entire staircase. Six of one... but easy enough to lay out a couple different ways and see which you prefer.

    Thanks guys. I'm thinking it should be ok. I'll add it to the unending list of projects. LOL. I'll match them tile layout to the stairs in the pic so I kind of have a template of sorts.

    I'd hire this guy, just based on his name. Paying travel might be cost prohibitive though.
