Under the stairs storage.
Say goodbye to wasted space and hello to your beautifully efficient stair remodel. That valuable real estate below the staircase has often been ignored in home designs, but in recent years, designers have been getting creative with the extra space. Adding this area beneath your staircase is not only practical for storage purposes, but it creates another attractive, decorative area to your home.
Add wallpaper to risers.
This simple upgrade can be done with a few rolls of wallpaper and a free Saturday. You'll want to make sure that your staircase is clean and that you have good looking wood treads in place to properly accent your new wallpaper design. The best part about this upgrade? It's easy to remove the wallpaper and change the look of your staircase any time you'd like. You can find plenty of ideas on Pinterest and other home decor websites.
Transition to iron balusters.
Trading in your old balusters for a beautiful set of iron balusters is a guaranteed way to upgrade the look of your staircase. With a variety of finishes to choose from, finding the right set of iron balusters for your home's staircase isn't a complicated process. Upgrading your staircase doesn't have to be a big, expensive project. Even the smallest additions can make a big difference.
