Stylish Stairs: Patterned

As I talked about in last week's post, stairs are a very visible element of many homes, and they should not be overlooked. Give your staircase a creative style update and it will instantly become a focal point in your home.

If you're feeling a bit more adventurous then simply painting your stairs, try using various stencils and paint to create a unique pattern on each "rise" (the vertical part of each stair). Paint the same pattern all the way up, or vary the pattern every couple of stairs. Use multiple colors for a richer look, or a single color to keep things a bit simpler. Not crafty enough for stenciling? Pick out one or more styles of wallpaper, cut them to the right size, and apply. This will give you a perfect detailed pattern each time.
