What's one of the most underrated and underutilized decor feature in your home? This week, my vote goes to your stair risers!
Commonly found in Spanish Mission-style homes, adding tile, wallpaper, paint and stencils to the risers on your staircase can transform them into an interesting focal point. In many North American homes, our staircases are among some of the first things guests see when entering, which makes it the perfect place to add a touch of personality. It can also help to create a sense of connection between your home’s main floor, and the often over-looked second floor.
From bold, high energy and high contrast colour schemes to more the soft and subtle and monochromatic palettes—no matter your décor style, those blank risers have potential.
Renters can also take advantage of this DIY with Apartment Therapy's clever (and less permanent) hack.
