What’s the first thing you see when you walk through the door? Okay, other than that untidy shoe rack in the porch or hallway and the pile of unopened letters stacked up against the wall!
Stairs often dominate any hallway. They’re not always the most uplifting of sights and often get neglected and ignored. However, with a little bit of love and attention, they can become a true statement to any home.
Not everyone has the luxury of a swooping grand Georgian staircase, with wrought iron balustrades and intricate architectural detail; enticing your eyes up towards the resplendent rooms of the floor above. With a little imagination you can inject a sense of fun and curiosity to your humble staircase. After all, they deserve a face-lift after the burden of family life 24 hours a day 7 days a week, plus you will also reap the benefits. By bringing a little more joy into your every day use and making bed time that little more satisfying, all of a sudden they will transform into a “Stairway to Heaven”…if you please.
Here are some ideas for you all to get inspired by…
1. Add beautiful wallpaper to your stair risers for an original staircase design.
2. Paint your stairs, either one block colour as a stair runner effect, or go through different shades of the same for the in-fashion ombre effect. Or just go wild and paint them however you decide!
3. Get a funky coloured carpet or runner…
4. Just go with your imagination and make it personal to your home, besides, there’s no place like it!
