I hated the trampy stairs in my council house so transformed them – it was so easy and I didn’t spend much either | The Sun

A WOMAN has shown how she transformed the "trampy" stairs in her council house on a budget.

Char took to her TikTok page to share a video of the makeover, which saw her start by applying strips of laminate to the steps.

"Let's get these trampy stairs sorted together," she began.

"First off, let's bond the flooring to the stair front."

Once the grey laminate was firmly in place, she used carpet to cover the stair tops.

In doing so, she completely altered the look of the stairs – taking them from "trampy" to elegant and chic.
