The stairwell is one area that is constantly used in the house but rarely given much thought when it comes to interior decoration. Maybe it is forgotten because it is considered as a platform for transitioning to the other rooms in the house. However, if you decorate the stairwell, you can create a beautiful theme throughout your house. How do you go about this? Below are some ideas you should consider trying.
Create a stairwell gallery
You can refresh the look of your stairwell by creating a gallery where you hang your photos and other memorabilia. To create an amazing look, hang the photos as the stairs rise and ensure that you keep them above the eye level to make them noticeable. Use the stairwell to display your family photos by arranging them chronologically to show off the different generations. To add color to the stairwell, hang bold and bright pieces of artwork along the wall. Make sure the colors and the patterns you chose work well together. If you love traveling, hang the memorabilia you have picked from different places so that your guest can take the journey with you as they climb the stairs. Better still, you can hang mirrors of varied sizes that will reflect the light from the stairwell.
Painting the stairwell
Adding a coat of paint on your stairwell is another amazing way of transforming this small space in your house. Use vibrant colors, such as purple or yellow, to make a statement and draw attention to the stairwell. Make sure the color you chose to use on the stairs complements that of other walls in the house. For instance, you can use white and black on the stairs to complement the gray on the walls. This is just one example of a classic combination that works well for any home.
Incorporating a pattern on the stairwell is yet another way of sprucing up this area of the house. You can hang wallpaper of varied patterns on the walls of the stairwell. Use vivid colors, such as orange to make this design noticeable. You can also get creative by incorporating a pattern on each step using wallpaper. The beauty of using wallpaper is that it available in a variety of colors and patterns, making it easy to customize it in any way you like. If you decide to decorate both the stairwell wall and steps using wall paper, make sure you use the same theme throughout to create a harmonious look.
Decorating your stairwell adds an elegant element to your house decor. You can use the ideas described above to make this small space more noticeable. Better still, you can work closely with an interior designer who can come up with other ways to spruce up your stairwell.
