Even though staircases are typically a means to get around the home, they should never be overlooked as an opportunity to decorate and inject with personal style. Whether you decide to add a colorful gallery wall or a unique reading nook, staircase designs can transform a rather ordinary space into extraordinary. Take a look at some of our favorite staircase decorating ideas.
Take a hint from other colorful areas in your home and add a colorful touch to your stairways. Consider painting your staircase wall a bold hue and pairing it with neutral tones. This can be done by using a patterned runner that brings the area a unique touch.
Everything modern is currently in, and we are enjoying it very much. Add a daring light fixture for that modern touch that brightens the room. You want the space to radiate contemporary yet feel part of your décor. You may even want to consider adding a daring painting along the way.
Nautical detailing is one of our favorites because of how simple yet noticeable it can be. Use rich shades of navy and pair with beige, white or even hints of neutral. The pairing will help bring vitality to that specific area in your home.
One of the easiest ways to update your staircase is by changing your wood. Use a lighter wood with less texture and place it in a format that has a bit of spacing. A floating staircase allows you to use less wood yet have a trendy twist. Keep the stairs clean without a runner for an even bold appeal.
White staircase with a pop of color
For a simple yet creative touch paint your staircase white and embellish the lower portion with daring color and/or pattern. Doing so will brighten the area while giving you that signature pop of color that draws the eye immediately. Consider having a chair or two with a patterned cushion for that vivid pop of color.
Squeeze in more plants
What better way to incorporate nature then by display a few intricate plans either directly on the stairs or near them. Having this classic display of plants brightens the space while adding color. It’s the perfect way to bring color to an area without adding excessive décor.
A built-in nook is a perfect way to display your favorite trinkets and/or beautiful family pictures. Furthermore, its an excellent way of having a custom piece that stands out from the rest. Plan to add intricate touches that will make you excited about having this new intricate area.
Add a Bench
For that chic appeal add a bench. This is the perfect way of having that cozy element without supplementary décor. Additionally, add a few throw pillows and/or a table creates a reading nook type of aesthetic that is always charming and appealing.
If you are lucky enough to have a large window seating as part of your staircase, take full advantage! Think of it as the best window in the house, it’s spacious, it’s airy, and it allows you to take your imagination elsewhere as you can add fun bits to make a personalized beautiful space.
Mix in Textures
There’s nothing grander for a staircase then to mix in textures that normally won’t work well together yet appear beautiful displayed as part of your staircase. Add a textured photo, a few mirrors or other textured bits to bring that bold texture.
