The stairs are a prominent part of your house. The central stairway in your home may be located in the foyer, off the entryway, or in another prominent area of your house and you want the stairs to be good looking and reflect your style. Some decorate the staircase with carpets or altogether make the staircases with wood. Both the alternatives are good, but if you wish to add more decoration and fancy look to the staircases, just go for painting them. It is rather easy to remove paint on wooden stairs and repaint them when needed.
There are two parts in any staircase; the place usually refers to as tread, where our foot lands and the riser that is just beneath. The tread is the part where all the action is done, and the riser is the visible portion for all who look at the staircase. For this reason, most of the people try to decorate with carpets or tiles to get a beautiful look. The carpets are best but are torn after some time and tiles go out of date very quickly. Paint is easy to use and can be modified easily.
Paint can also be in different colors for the stairs, and we can change the color of the staircase when needed with less effort. But in the case of tiles, the removal and installation are very time taking and too risky.
As said above, stair risers are the most viewed by any person. So keep the paint of the riser simple but effective and attractive. It’s fairly customary to paint stair risers a bright, glossy white while the stair tread gets a coat of protective stain, but this is not same for all the stair risers.
When you have decided to get your stairways to get painted, the common question arises, what color should I paint my stairs? A lot of stairways and risers get painted in white or off-white, cloud white being the default choice. Lately, darker colors even black are being used with some excellent results. The look is so dramatic that the staircase itself becomes the center of attraction of the house.
If you don’t like dark colors and white glossy paint is also not your choice, then go for other painting ideas.
