Paint

Paint is an easy and affordable way to transform any space. We love the evolution of this staircase. Because the organge-toned wood was not the look Whitney Utesch of Carpendaught was after, she originally painted this staircase black and white. We shared it here. A few years later and her style involved into something more subtle and warm. We love this recent makeover with it’s sophisticated and on-trend pairing of white, taupe, and wood.

Switch out the Balusters

Before

Although we didn’t want to loose all the Old World character of our Torina project, the baluster’s iron scrolls were too ornate for our client’s aesthetic. Keeping all the origional woodwork but switching out the balusters saved a lot of money but created a whole new look.

Update your Wood

Before

Wood stairs are beautiful and high end. If your stairs are carpeted, consider removing old carpet and updating with wood. If your stairs are already wood, but in a dated style or wood tone, a wood makeover can revamp your look. Light wood and clean lines are a pretty update.

If your staircase revamp is part of a larger remodel, sometimes it makes sense to just start fresh to ensure you get the look you really want. We love this modern transformation with floating risers. It’s a statement maker.
