I just put down some prefinished hardwood in my upstairs hallway, and I was
slipping all over the place in socks. The piece that will go between the
nosing at the top of the stairs and the rest of the flooring isn't quite a
full width piece, so I've left it out until I get the nosing, but I'm thinking
of putting in a non-skid thing as a last resort if I start sliding. Of course
it has to look nice :-)

I was thinking of a piece of perforated hardwood, but all I'm finding are
soundproofing materials. It needs to be 3/4" thick like the flooring. I don't
have a drill press so DIY 250 holes is not an option...

Any thoughts? Actually something that incorporated the nosing too would be
nice, so it isn't slippery. The rest of the stairs will have a carpet runner.
