The staircase, like the bathroom, can often be overlooked and forgotten. Don’t waste that space! It can be a tricky space because it’s not the easiest to decorate. You mostly have walls, maybe a small shelf space of sorts and a little floor space at the bottom to work with, but that’s okay!
We have found that a lot can be done in small spaces! There’s no need to limit yourself. Plus we can’t forget about the stairs themselves. We can use stair runners, wood or even tiles to decorate them giving us even more options.
Check out some of these staircases to find out what other people/designers are doing and to get some inspiration! Apply what you like to your home. Put up that gallery wall and use that space!
It’s time to breath new life into the stairs you walk up and down each day! There’s no reason not to love your stairs, so we put together this tips post to help you guys out and give you some inspiration! We’ve got three ways you can update your stairs and enjoy walking up and down your stairs. Check it out!
1. Get Your Paintbrush Ready!
A little paint can go a long way on your stairs. There are plenty of options for painting your stairs. You can paint them one solid color, multiple colors, paint patterns, or even paint scenes on them. It all depends on the look you’re going for. And when you want to change it up again, no problem! Just pick your new paint colors and start painting.
2. Time To Start Running!
A stair runner can add more than just a new look to your stairs. It can bring style, color and purpose. You can use a stair runner to bring the upstairs and downstairs decor together and keep the flow going from space to space. It will also help fight against wear if your stairs are going to get a constant beating.
3. Keep It Natural!
Not into wood stairs or stair runners? Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you! Natural stones and tiles can bring a new look and style into your home. You can also paint your tile to give your stairs a unique look. These materials can be used inside or outside and are built to last.
* Bonus Tip – Ditch The Typical Banister *
If you really want to change up your stairs and give them a whole new look then it’s time to try something new. Get rid of your original banister and run some thick rope instead. This nautical accessory will give your stairs the complete coastal look and leave you loving your stairs.
