Brightly painted siding and neatly pruned landscaping aren't the only things guests notice when they visit. For homes with a stair walkway, the steps are a major focal point. For dressed-up steps—and firmer footing—try a set of sturdy rubber treads in a scrollwork pattern. The cutout design mimics the timeless look of wrought iron, and collects dirt and dust from guests' shoes before they get to the front door. And when it's time to clean, all you need to do is spray them with your garden hose. Available at Amazon; $17.07.
