Many homeowners miss the design opportunities in a simple staircase. Sure, your stairs serve a functional purpose, but they can also be stylish with a little paint or the right stair runner. Don't underestimate the power of giving your stairs some flair.
Here are ten sensational staircases to give you some inspiration.
Love these simple black steps with white kickboards. Looks classic and clean.
Similar to the above but with a beautiful striped woven stair runner. Nice combination.
If black and white is too boring for you, maybe a bright turquoise. So pretty!
For an edgier look, a single red and yellow step. Definitely eye catching.
Still not enough color for you? How about this beautiful multicolored staircase?
Or how about wood stairs with a little black-painted design element that draws the eye up, up, up? Nice, yes?
Reminiscent of Ashley Campbell's yardstick backsplash, here we have yardstick (or meter stick) kickboards on the stairs.
These reclaimed wood box stairs are so incredible!
Simpel floral wallpaper kickboards are nice. Yes, they are.
And this has to be my most favorite staircase ever on this earth and forevermore the end. Spectacular!
