weekend decorator – 7 amazing ways to turn your stairs into a design statement
In the first of my new series ‘weekend decorator’ I’m featuring what is probably the most under utilised surface in your home, one that you can turn into a real design statement.
Traditionally the humble staircase was just seen as a functional way to move from one floor to the next, often covered in carpet or a wood stain. Here are 7 ideas to inspire you to create a personalised design statement, in just one weekend.
These pictures are gorgeous.
I love little bits of decoration and detail in unexpected places and these are just perfect for that.
My favourite is probably the bookshelves.
Yes it’s a simple way to add decoration and a bit of fun in the most unexpected of places! It’s an innovative way to store your books. I think my favourite is the chalk board, appealing to my fun, playful side.
Once again you have shared with us all a real gem. Stairs are so often overlooked as just a connecting space to take us to rooms where all teh care and attention to design are carefully considered. I will never look at a staircase in the same way again.
Hi Janet, I feel the same way. Every stair case I look at now I can just see the endless creative opportunities to ‘dress them up’!
I love these! The books shelves are great, and although I love the chalk board, having had a large one in my last house, the dust drove me crazy. I would have to be the quotes for me, I would really go to town with my Pearls of Wisdom!
That’s a very good point about the chalk dust. Like a lot of creative ideas it’s usually a tug between function, practicality and design.
aww awesome! What a great idea. I want a place with more stairs now! 🙂
Thanks for sharing Karen… xx
It is a fun idea!
I love the stairs idea Karen, it’s left me wondering what to do with mine.
It’s a great surface to let your imagination go wild! Enjoy
