Step Up Your Stairs

Stair can be a really fun way to add some pizazz to your home. Because there is just a small area to work with, you can really get crazy and add color, bold, prints, or even some whimsy. Here are some ideas that you can do yourself to step up your stairs!

Paper the Risers:
Yes, that is wallpaper.....Pick a bold print that will make an impact but make to seal it with a water based sealer to protect from scuffs

Paint a Numbered Runner:
Count your steps and feel free to use different colors

Share Your Thoughts
Have some thoughts you want to share, or is there a quote that you LOVE and would like to see everyday....Paint it on your stair risers

Use Chalkboard Paint
Can't decide what you want to put on your risers? Use chalkboard paint so that you can switch it up whenever you want. Chalkboard paint now come is tintable colors so if black is too harsh, ask your home improvement stores about the available colors

Tile Away
Visit your local salvage yard and pick out some unique tiles that could add a global feel to your home

Painted Runner
Any color will do but paint both your risers and your treads to give the continuous look

Paint the Treads
This allows you to still add color but in a different way

Give the eye some visual candy and paint stripes to add movement
