When it comes to well-judged staircase ideas, our interior designers often find that they’ve been completely overlooked in many homes which is a shame as staircases can be used to add a sense of stylish everyday glamor to any home, or workspace.
Whether you have a grand staircase to work with, or something a little smaller and more traditional, there are plenty of savvy decorating ideas for stairs and hallways that are far from dull. Staircase ideas have never been so varied!
If you’ve got wider steps than the usual home, tiers of bookshelves will help you make the best use of the space while creating a comforting library feel. Even better if you’re able to create an intimate reading nook on the landing.
If you’d like to be able to affordably update your staircase every few years or so, you can do so with ease by using durable floor paint for a quick home refresh you can do on your own.
Constructed entirely out of oak and sturdy in appearance, the library offers a reading niche on its lower level and supports a minimal white and clear glass staircase that bridges to the upper level of the apartment.
FAMILY PHOTO GALLERY
It can be hard to find a stylish way of displaying your favorite family photos but framing them and hanging them on a gallery-inspired wall lining your stairs is a tasteful approach to consider.
A HANGING MOBILE
A wide stairwell also makes for a great place to display artwork and sculptures that you want to highlight from your collection. We love how an elegant and minimal mobile was sourced for the stairs pictured here.
While there are plenty of unsightly stencils available, with proper research, you’re more than likely to come across an arresting and well-designed option for your home. Stencils are a fun way to add some pattern to your staircase and they are also relatively affordable as well.
Illuminate your staircase decorating ideas with some well-designed wall sconces to punctuate the space. These will work to brighten your staircase with a stylized effect. To keep the look interesting, source sconces that boast intriguing silhouettes and scale.
For a more traditional take on modern staircase ideas, a paneled wall is sure to add a sense of timeless, everyday elegance to any home. Plus, you’ll find the symmetry soothing when the walls are left bare.
When it comes to decorative plates, where better display them than on your staircase? Choose plates in a similar style and scale for a more symmetrical look, or mix and match them for a more eclectic, casual staircase design.
Editing the area around the staircase is a task that is often forgotten, and remains out of focus regardless of the size of empty space that occupies. You need to take care about the whole design; the space around them should not be ignored, because the neglect or imbalance in the arrangement can produce the opposite effect than desired.
