Stair tread runners – The staircase is an integral part of your home, giving you access to different levels of living space. They are also often overlooked areas that just scream for a personal touch and a bit of decorating style. Create a bold statement with your staircase and not just push it in the background. From carpet to carpet, the staircase is suitable for a wide range of possibilities. Your staircase can become a focal point for a room or foyer and not just a way to get from first floor to second floor.
Perhaps the easiest and most versatile idea for decoration is a stairway tread using paint. Any technique that you can use when painting walls will work on the stairs. Create a marbled look by painting a faux finish on the stairs step or making a permanent runner by blocking the section center stairway tread and riser and painting area a different color than the rest. Added interest, consider painting each step a different color. Whatever your imagination can dream about can be done with a little paint.
Stencil a design on each tread. Use decorating style for inspiration. For example, if you are decorating a lodge-style home, consider stenciling different child star designs on every stairway tread. A more flower style can be suitable for every step with an ivy vines or flower. Look for words, spellings or even numbers.
