The rail­ing and spin­dles

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

For the most part, it is a good idea to keep the rail­ing and spin­dles neu­tral (white or nat­u­ral wood) if you are us­ing colour on other parts of the stairs and walls. Another gen­eral rule of thumb is to paint the spin­dles white and paint the rail­ing the same colour as the stair treads. If you paint the treads black and the ris­ers white, for ex­am­ple, then paint the rail­ing black and the spin­dles white. If you went with a colour on the treads, like dark pur­ple, paint the rail­ing in dark pur­ple and keep the rest white and so on. This is just a gen­eral rule that need not be strictly ad­hered to if you’re ad­ven­tur­ous with colour. Step up your decor by dec­o­rat­ing your stair­way. There are many unique and fun ideas to dis­cover.
