4 Ways to Liven Up Your Stairs
Create a focal point that would surely charm your guests
Some don't usually pay attention to the staircase—other than keeping it spotless and safe to avoid accidents. If you're planning to give your home a makeover, you can achieve a new look by simply updating your stairs. This part of the house can be an interesting focal point that you and your guests would surely appreciate.
Make each step count and consider the ideas below. Just make sure that you consult with a design professional first before investing in any project:
Turn it into a mini library
If there's ample space under the stairs that you can use, you can install shelves under it to create a special place for your books. This would be perfect especially if the living area is just beside it! You can place your magazines and favorite reads so you can easily grab one whenever you feel like relaxing.

Create your own work of art
To add more depth to your space, you can paint the nooks in between the steps. This also comes as a welcome idea—especially if you think that your staircase is a bit dull. Consider painting chevron patters, stripes, and even polka dots! You can also work with colorful washi tape.

Choose unique railings
Depending on your theme or style that you want to achieve, you can choose something special for your stairs' railings. Take inspiration from this nautical-inspired staircase featuring ropes. You can also experiment with different kinds of wood. Just remember to always think safety first to avoid accidents.

Add storage options
Similar to the bookshelf idea, you can turn the space under the stairs into a storage center. Install additional closets and drawers or add pull-out drawers. You can use these to store extra pillows, sheets, books, and even clothes and pantry items.
