Unlike a finish, which is meant to protect the wood, a stain won’t do that. Instead, a stain works by darkening the wood or adding pigments to the natural grain. By rubbing the stain into the wood (a process that takes place BEFORE the finish is applied) the natural grain pattern is able to be emphasized and given a more dramatic appearance by bringing out the natural beauty of the piece. This is why staining is not a necessary part of woodworking, but can be a great way to spruce up an older piece of furniture or add a complete look to a new project.

This is because, in addition to having to decide on carpet style and color, the carpet has to be of appropriate durability and thickness to be installed on the stair.
