How to Step Up Your Stairs’ Style

Have you been thinking about ways to elevate your decorating style? In addition to making changes in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom, consider what you can do in the transitional spaces in your home. Hallways and stairs are often overlooked when it comes to decorating, so don’t forget to include them in your design plan. Stairs may connect different floors in your house or lead from the outdoors to your front or backdoor. In any case, you can use decorative tile and other means to give your stairs’ style a step up.

Decorative Tile

The risers of your stairs could be a great place for you to incorporate decorative tile into your home’s design. You can have every stair riser depict a different pattern or scene, or choose the same one for all of your stairs. If your staircase is tall, you can choose to just decorate some of the risers with tile rather than all of them. This will add visual interest, but keep the overall look from getting too busy. Use colors that go well with your existing décor, and don’t shy away from bold colors if they make sense in this application.

Inspirational Words

In today’s modern world, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with obligations ranging from familial to professional to social. If you find yourself needing a little boost here and there, consider using your stair risers as a canvas for inspirational sayings. You can use single words written in tile that help you feel grounded, or create an entire sentence moving from riser to riser. This can help you feel more motivated to tackle your busy schedule, and gives you a mantra of sorts when you return home to relax. Guests and visitors will also appreciate this unique idea, as it can convey who you are and what’s important to you.
