Lightening stairs *PIC*

Tara Desmond
Hi everyone!
I just met a client who wants to refinish his stairs. There are 15, as well as a post and 2 railings.
They say they are red oak (I'm not good with wood identification) and they would like to change them to a whiter oak colour to match the new floor that was just installed. They want a very matte finish for the stairs.

Question I have.... Is it worth it to bleach the stairs? I don't have experience using the two-part bleaches.. Not sure what is the best product to use for a job of this size/ I was thinking -- strip, sand, bleach, varnish???..
any suggestions to lighten the wood and match the hardwood finish??

Thank you!!!
