10 ways to up­date your stair­case

Whether you want a com­plete re­design or a quick up­date, a re­vamped stair­case can trans­form the look and feel of your home

Real Homes - - ADVICE -

Your stair­case is one of the most used parts of your home, so it shouldn’t be over­looked. When trans­form­ing your stair­case, you have three main choices: go for a com­plete re­place­ment; up­date key el­e­ments; or choose sim­ple dec­o­rat­ing ideas for a quick facelift.

UP­DATE YOUR BALUSTRADE

Sim­ply re­plac­ing your balustrade is one of the the eas­i­est ways to give your stair­case a mod­ern look without blow­ing the bud­get. If your stair­case is open plan to your main liv­ing room, swap­ping a wooden balustrade for a glass one can open up the space by re­flect­ing the nat­u­ral light, mak­ing your room feel big­ger and your stair­way much brighter. Don’t be afraid to mix ma­te­ri­als ei­ther – com­bin­ing a glass balustrade with a wooden handrail and treads can cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary look that will also add warmth to any space.
