Designer Tip: Stylin' Stairs

Stairways are often a forgotten spot - sure you hang some pictures along the wall, but stairs usually lack style.  Try wallpapering the risers or painting the entire stairs with stripes or patterns.  It'll make going up and down the stairs a lot more enjoyable!
Black & white bold patterns add drama.
This is a great way to use leftover wallpaper or paint from previous projects.  If you're painting your stairs, be sure to use an enamel paint for durability.
Stripes accentuate the height of the stairwell.


  1. I would love this, but my husband would FREAK! Who would have ever thought of wallpaper on the risers?
    Cool idea.

  2. Good post girlie!!!! I've never really seen anyone touch on this subject before. Love that first stairway with the mis-matched tiles. And by the way...Beth still hasn't talked to Mike about the pink bedroom yet...whatever that means.

  3. OMG I love this idea! Woo hoo! So pretty and unusual to see the pattern on stairs. Awesome.


Thanks for reading. What do you think?
