Some homeowners may not realize that a staircase is just another area of their home that can be decorated to make the home appear stylish. Staircases are often overlooked when it comes to decorating, but depending on the layout of the home, the staircase may be more important than you think, especially if it is the first thing people see when they walk in. Here are some useful tips for decorating the staircase in your home.
Frame a few of your favorite photographs and hang them up along the wall of the staircase. These photographs can be ones of your family or they can be of nature or other decorative objects.
Hang them so that they appear to be descending with the staircase. Be sure that the frames you choose complement the color of the wall. A good idea is to match the color of the stairs (if they are wood) to the color of the wood in the frames.
If you really want your staircase to stand out, then consider painting a mural or design that goes up the stairs. This could be as simple as a leaf or flower pattern that follows the stairs or it can be a larger and more intricate mural.
