Is Your Staircase Stunning?

Step Away From a Humdrum Stairway into Stairway Magic!

How could a painter resist a Pantone staircase? The answer of course is we can’t, and there are plenty of other creative ideas for turning a ho-hum staircase into a stunner. If you’ve ever stood at the bottom of your stairs and wondered how you could possibly liven up a humdrum staircase, then we have some great ideas for you.

The wrought iron railing turns this stairway from nice to amazing!

Wrought iron never goes out of style so replacing wooden balusters with wrought iron is not only a wise investment, but one that will vastly improve the overall visual impact of your staircase. Many standard styles are available that are quite lovely, but should your budget allow for a custom design, the sky is the limit.

A little imagination is all it takes when it pertains to creating staircase magic. To create means ‘to evolve from one’s own thought or imagination’ and therefore what you create is as unique as the individual. A creative staircase can mean refinement and elegance for a stunning conclusion, while another may think outside the box by using a simple design element to create a striking effect.

Black floors offset by white wainscoting and balusters, and luscious cream walls create pure elegance and serenity.

If your staircase is the first thing people see when they enter your house then it’s your chance to set the tone for how you want guests to feel in your home and perceive who you are. Do you lean toward a formal style or a more casual elegance? Are you a bit funky and eclectic or do you prefer French country or a lake cottage feel? Take lake cottage for example: The use of stained hardwood flooring for the stairs paired with a sisal runner and soft pastel interior paint can create the feel of lake breezes blowing across your cheeks.

While this entryway is simple with white walls and hardwoods, the single coral design element brings it to life with a bit of whimsy.

Carpet runners are an excellent way to infuse your stairs with color without actually altering the stairs themselves. If you’re not afraid to take the leap and apply a design technique to your staircase, think about design elements you love. Are you fascinated by tile, wallpaper, stencils, paint or refurbished materials? Any will do. Check out our Pinterest page “Sassy, Stunning Staircases” for some incredibly creative and beautiful examples.

Who would ever guess this fantastic storage was underneath this stunning staircase?


Lastly, don’t miss the opportunity to utilize the space underneath your stairs. That lost footage can be turned into a great reading nook, playroom for the kids, wine storage, pantry, small office or study area, book shelves, hidden drawers, mini-mud room, entertainment nook, or even a small half bath.

Your home is your castle and your staircase is possibly one of the most important features. Play it up for all its worth and enjoy your staircase, be it sassy or stunning.
