Step up your decor: dec­o­rate your stair­way

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - CON­NIE OLIVER

IT’S time for a re­fresher course. We’ve cov­ered some of these ideas be­fore but one tends to for­get, so to­day let’s re­view some awe­some ways to dec­o­rate a stair­case. With the ex­cep­tion of grand win­dows or a fire­place a stair­case might be the most ar­chi­tec­turally in­ter­est­ing fea­ture of your home. It makes sense to en­hance stairs with unique dec­o­rat­ing ideas. There are many facets of a stair­case that have po­ten­tial for change; treads, ris­ers, spin­dles, ban­nis­ters and the walls along the stair­case as well. Let’s break it down fea­ture by fea­ture. dec­o­ra­tive tiles, house num­bers, wall­pa­per, photos, de­coupage, peel and place de­cals with quotes, cute sil­hou­ettes, dec­o­ra­tive wooden re­lief ac­cents, fab­ric, barn board, beaded pan­elling and vintage but­tons. As long as the items you are at­tach­ing to the ris­ers don’t im­pede the use of the stairs the sky is the limit.
