2. Compliment your stair runner project with a wooden half landing

You will also make the stair runner job an essay in ease as it becomes a straight stair runner install .

3. Make everything white with powder blue accents

Recognized as the global authority on color, Pantone named one of their “this year” colors as  powder blue . The other is Pink (but keep to the dustier tones)

Designers report that connectedness and quiet simplicity are the drivers behind these gentle calming colors . 

Creating the ultimate in clean and restful environments is paint brand Benjamin Moore . Their Color of the year 2016 is Simply White OC-117 . Set your stair runner project off to a great start with this winning and simple design formula .

Flooring in warm stone is easy on the eye and the mind as you see to your left . Natural flooring is just such a color , particularly our sisal gold .

Restful and connected with nature , shades of white are just the ticket to wind down after a fast paced day at work .

Designers are reporting that increasing stress levels in the world today are creating an ever growing need for balancing our mind body and spirit !

Now we could all do with some of that !  

4. Paint the “tread” of your stairs black or dark varnish and leave the riser in white .


Transform ugly stairs with this inexpensive paint job . Nice before and after!

This is such a cheap and effective transformation if you have untidy paint work .  Using black on the tread looks dynamic but is also practical to wipe off the odd scuff mark .

If you’re looking for a deeper shine and a better finish use two or three thin coats and a slight sand with around 300 grit sandpaper .


Sisal chocolate makes a rich finish to these painted stairs

To create that magical timeless quality to your stair runner project , the use of this sumptuous sisal chocolate stair runner alludes to centuries old workmanship in a modern world .

Sisal will maintain its appearance for years to come , particularly in this shade. Lighter shades of naturals can also look stunning .

On a practical note . The stair runner itself will stop the paint becoming marked and make the stairs safe .

5. Make a little desk space
