Need help to remodel my carpet stairs.

I NEED to replace the stairs which are currently carpeted. I detest the carpet and it is really old. The entire rest of the house is cream/grey marble flooring. I was thinking to replace the carpet with a wood plank and paint the bottom piece a white to contrast the wood as I have little ones and don't want to have to put a tile. Also, it will be easier for my husband to install a wood plank stair. What are your thoughts on the colour of the wood for the stair? I have dark coffee table and dark wood with an orange undertone. The kitchen is white and I plan on painting the walls light (light grey - Balboa Mist maybe). Thanks!!

Pictures of the existing project/colours are always helpful, but I think if you are planning on painting the risers, go with either a cream or grey to echo the flooring and match/coordinate with the other painted surfaces in the house. For the treads I would suggest either an oak or maple (depending on the wood grain style you prefer) and staining them a darker tone to compliment the other wood tones. Don't forget to think about the railing and newel post too!

Here is a picture of a stair with white risers and wood treads to give you a general idea of the look:


Good luck!
