With long days and warm nights right around the corner, you might’ve started scouring Pinterest and Instagram in search of some summer home décor inspiration.
The importance of the staircase is overlooked by many homeowners. Maybe your current set of stairs is looking a little tired, but you’re worried a renovation will break the bank.
It doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, you can add a touch of summertime magic to your hallway and give your stairs a new lease of life just by making a few small changes.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
Consider glass stair parts
Glass stair parts are a magnificent way of brightening up your hallway.
They allow natural light to flow effortlessly around your home (perfect for when the sun is out) and help you create the illusion of a much larger space.
If you’re looking for something sophisticated and modern to take you through the year, glass panels are the way forward and they look great no matter the season.
All you need to do is replace your old wooden spindles with glass panels – they’re sure to fit right in and complement your other wooden staircase components!
Opt for colourful paint
If you’re constantly wanting to change up the look of your balustrade, a fresh coat of paint now and then is your best option.
Let’s be real, not many of us have the money to throw away on a staircase renovation every few months as the seasons change. However, a tin of paint is much more affordable and can give your home a whole different vibe.
Maybe you want to keep a slice of summer all year long. In this case bright paint colours, like yellow or blue and even pastels, are sure to do the trick.
If you’re working with a tighter budget, this is definitely the way to go.
Invest in stair runners
If you don’t want to touch your existing staircase parts, whether that be replacing them or giving them a fresh coat of paint, a stair runner is the perfect alternative.
Stair runners aren’t only stylish but they’re highly functional, too. They are a great way of incorporating different colours and patterns into your décor.
You can easily switch them out with the seasons, or keep the summer vibes going all year long with your favourite bright colours and patterns.
Brighten up your staircase on a budget
You can drastically improve the look of your stairs by adding or changing a few different elements, and there are various budget-friendly ways you can go about it.
Whether you want to replace your spindles or add a fresh coat of paint in time for the summer, you’re bound to find something to meet your every requirement.
