idea for a variation on the numbering scheme: use the height from waterline to ceiling clearance like is posted on bridges on waterways. first one would be 8 or 10 ft or whatever, next 7, then 6, and so on. Sail boaters would get it right away.

Many companies make these kind of railings. You can customize the rope type and mounting hardware. Here is an online site that you can peruse.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kathryn added this to Decorating with Numbers
I picture this being a great addition to a home with children, teaching them to count every time that they go up the stairs!
Kit Pollard added this to Stairs That Really Go Someplace
Here's what I love about this: it's so simple. It's not that the staircase itself is crazy and fancy. It's just a stencil and a cool rope as a railing. Purely creative and totally easy to implement, but fantastic.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Fresh Alternatives to the Carpeted Staircase
Decorating with numbers is so popular these days. Steps seem like a fun place to use them. Check out the nautical rope handrail.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to What Says "Quality" In A Home? Wooden Tread Staircases
Adding numbers to risers is a fun detail, particularly when paired with a rope banister.
Becky Harris added this to Update That Beachy Style!
Everything is a bit more free and easy in a coastal home. Feel free to make some unconventional and eclectic moves, as this designer did with these stairs.
If you're handy with stencils, numerals paired with a rope handrail add a nautical touch.
Samantha Schoech added this to Dip a Toe Into Modern Nautical Style
The rope banister is certainly clever, but what I really love are the stenciled numbers on the steps. They remind me of steamer trunks.
Strip carpeting from high-traffic areas. If you've been thinking of removing that ratty old carpeting from your back staircase or entryway, seize your moment. Carpeting traps sand and muck like nothing else, and you will enjoy the coolness of bare floors in summer.Style note: If you're looking for a creative idea for your newly bare stairs, try painting them white with a stripe down the middle (natural wood or a color), then stencil numbers on the risers for a fresh, nautical-inspired look.
9. Stairway + a little paint = number stencils. Short on paint? Leaving the stairs bare, use a basic number stencil set from the crafts store to apply paint to each riser.
Fred Albert added this to Flights of Fancy: Painted Stair Runners
Instead of applying paint to the middle, you can apply it to the sides, creating a "wood runner" down the center of the stairs, as in this nautical example.Tip: Allow your stairs to dry at least 24 hours before walking on them.More: How to paint hardwood floors
