Decorating your stairs is probably the last thing you think about when remodeling your house. However, just like the other crucial and versatile parts of the house, staircases should be well-decorated as well. Here are some inspirations to easily decorate your staircase.

Stair Runners

A bare staircase can be slippery, but covering them with carpet is a bit dated. No worries because you can add stair runners. To select the best runners, consider several things: the overall size of the stair, the number of steps, and the size of landing (if any). Wool material is the most recommended for runners.

Add a pop of color to your space with a multi-colored rug runner on the stairs for a fresh look.

Colorful Risers

You can add wallpaper to decorate the stairwell. However, colorful temporary wallpaper can also be applied to the stair steps to create a fun decoration. If you love to experiment with new colors, try a unique, different print for each step. You can also use leftover wallpaper to apply on your stair risers.

A fun idea to decorate a staircase is to start with a bright color like yellow and gradually achieve shades like green, turquoise, and finally blue.
You can use chalkboard paint on your steps. Then use colored chalk to write a fun or inspiring message.
If you prefer a playful approach, paint each riser a different color. You can choose pastel colors and mix and match them however you like.
Or maybe you want to infuse a little Mediterranean style into your staircase. You can use small square tiles that feature a variety of colors, patterns and designs.
You can choose any type of pattern. Something a little cute and adorable can work well in a girly décor or for a staircase leading up to a nursery.
