How to make Nugget Comfort stairs: a step by step guide

Want to make the trendy Nugget staircase? Here’s how to make it – no matter how many Nuggets you have – and even add a slide!

Nugget recently shared an awesome staircase step build on their instagram page.

It inspired me to try this build out myself!

I was super impressed. It’s extremely stable (my husband laid on it with our 2 year old, so it’s really strong!)

It is super interactive – we set ours up with stairs and a slide.

This build would pair great with a slide or a wobble board, too!

We’ve been having a ton of fun with this build, so I wanted to share a step by step how to guide with you today!

How to make Nugget Comfort stairs

I made the below set up using 4 Nuggets, but you can modify it to use less Nuggets. You need at least 2 to make this build, but just do the same thing, less tall with less.

If you have just 2 nuggets, you only need horizontal triangles in the back. Or, you can build this off a couch or sofa!

Lay a thick foam piece flat on the ground.


Layer a second, thin foam piece on top, about 6 inches back.


Repeat with as many Nuggets as you have

Put triangles in the back. 2 triangles can lay horizontally. If you have 3 or more Nuggets, place a row vertically behind the horizontal triangles – you can fit 3 vertically.

Alternatively, use a chair or couch to help prop it up.

You can opt to use a firm rectangle as a slide down one side! For shorter stairs, position so one half is flat on top of the stairs and the other half angled down.
