We have a spiral staircase in our house – so we are going to need to be creative about making the house safe. We also have almost all tile/Slate flooring (which is an often uneven step/hard surface).
So far, our solution to this will be using play yard gates (as apposed to standard baby gates that most people have) to block off the stairs and using those bign foam squares with maybe some rugs to make the floor a little softer of a landing.
These are all things down the road, but I was able to purchase both the play yard gates and the foam squares used.
What we paid: $100.
Would have been new: $243
Running total for used items: $258
Approximate amount if all items were new: $802
