DIY: Staircase Makeover
Staircases are an often overlooked feature. But with a little creativity and a few simple supplies, you can create a stunning staircase in your home.
Slide 1/6) Paint
Get some paint and get to work! You can make quite an impact with an accent color on the stair risers, or you can get imaginative with unique color combinations or perhaps even an ombre or gradient effect. Another idea is to paint the risers using chalkboard paint!
Slide 2/6) Wallpaper
Adhere some wallpaper to the risers for a totally unique, custom look. Using wallpaper also offers a unique opportunity to incorporate texture and pattern onto the staircase as well. You can get as subtle or extreme as you’d like!
Slide 3/6) Wood
Get your hands on some reclaimed barn wood, a saw, and a few nails and use it to refinish your stairs for a warm, rustic look. This update would look great on the entire staircase, or just the risers.
Slide 4/6) Tiles
Tiles are an easy and inexpensive way to transform your staircase. Because there are so many different tile styles, you could create a completely custom look.
Slide 5/6) Words of Wisdom
A fun staircase trend is to inscribe inspirational quotes or words on the risers. You could accomplish this with paint by hand or with a stencil, or you could order vinyl decals.
Slide 6/6) Classic Runner
You can’t go wrong with a classic. All you need is a runner (or several) long enough to cover your staircase and a staple gun to achieve this look.
