If you are lucky (or unfortunate) to have a staircase in your home and you are reading this article, it is because you no longer know what to do with the happy staircase to decorate it, right?
We have prepared this good batch of ideas and inspiration for decorating stairs. Not just the steps or the railing, no, but ideas to decorate both the stairwell, as the landings, walls, steps and railings. Whether you have a duplex, a chalet or a house with two floors, take good note and inspiration and get ready to leave that passageway decorated as God intended. We started.
CUSHIONS, THE RIGHTEOUS
We refer to the sofa cushions. In order not to saturate the seating area, the cushions must be adapted in number to the size of the sofa. Do not fill completely with two rows of cushions. 4 well-coordinated is preferable to 8. And of a suitable size. 50x 50 or 45 x 45 cm is fine. The bigger the better for other rooms.
WITH CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS
A shoe rack for the hall, a closet for coats or as a mini storage room. The stairwell in a small hall can also be a place to create a design as you take advantage of that space. If it is not for daily use or in a location that does not coincide with the opening of the doors, place a pouf or bench and you will have the environment ready to welcome home.
ROOM UNDER THE STAIRS
If you have a small hall with a staircase, don’t hesitate to take advantage of the space underneath it to create a charming corner. Look for a low-rise furniture type console or mini sideboard and avoid placing a painting or mirror on the wall that accentuates the disproportion of lines and shapes. Decorate only with a low lamp and some extra ornaments.
PLANTS TO SLEEP SOUNDLY
Since you already know that having plants in the bedroom is not harmful at all, place an XL-size one in a corner away from the heating. There are even some specimens that will help you fall asleep, for example, aloe vera and sansevieria that emit oxygen at night, or lavender and jasmine whose aroma has relaxing properties.
RENEW YOUR WOODWORKING WITH THIS DECORATOR TIP
“If we want to go to economic solutions to renew without spending, we must reuse”, indicates Antón Pérez from the Ábaton study. “For example, taking an old door from a gallery and turning it into a large sliding door suspended on a track. We did it in one of our projects, finished off with a lacquered MDF on the top.” By leaving a visible slide (not recessed), it decorates and integrates into the whole.
A GLASS ENCLOSURE TO DELIMIT
Sliding glass doors to delimit the kitchen from a passageway or distributor area. In this case, they have been chosen in a white lacquered finish with transparent glass, making large panels. The more glazed area, the lighter the composition.
CHEAP EXTERIOR RENOVATION
There can be a lot of variety here. But maybe you have a garden or patio that is accessed by a staircase. For outdoor use, the metal ones with an oven-lacquered finish are light and resistant. A conventional 8-step height design is around € 1,000 without a railing. If you already have one, and you want to update your image, just covering it with a smooth sheet.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GAP UNDER THE STAIRS WITH A MINI CLOSET
If you have a staircase, think about taking advantage of its structure with a custom wardrobe: you will give use to a space that did not have it and, in addition, you will gain an extra wardrobe, which never exceeds If you want it to go unnoticed, get inspired by this idea: close it with smooth doors, without handles and lacquered just like the walls. Here, in addition, the doors follow the design of the steps.
A MINI KITCHEN UNDER THE STAIRS
We said it: here every cm was optimized. And the kitchen proves it. With the ladder leaning against the side of the furniture, it is small but it does not lack anything. Even natural light! It has been organized on two fronts, which allows more storage space, and has been stained in white, like the walls, which gives it lightness and helps it go more unnoticed. If you liked these solutions, wait until you see the bedrooms.
SOLUTION FOR SMALL SPACES
If as soon as you enter the house you have the stairs that take you to the upper floor and your hall is reduced to the minimum expression, see how the interior designer Laura Mas has solved it: with a simple stool and a basket where you can leave your slippers – which you now receive gifts-. And as decoration, some lantern-shaped candle holders of different sizes rest on the floor.
STAIRWELL + BOOKCASE
Does your house have a staircase that connects to the upper floor? Take advantage of the free space that remains under it to install a mini hall or create an extra storage area, closed or open. You can turn it into an improvised shoe rack or a wonderful built-in bookcase, as has been done here to clear the living room.
DECORATE WITH NATURAL ELEMENTS
You may not see the moment in other years, but this one in which you are surely taking more walks through the countryside and nature than ever, decorate with natural elements: bare branches or with leaves, fir, olive branches, trunks, stones, green, pineapples. You will gain charm in the decoration of your home. This year maybe when you finally place a pretty branch in a vase and fill it with hanging ornaments.
ADD DIY PAPER BALLS
Did you like the previous proposal? Well, it continues to hallucinate, because the garland of pine branches that you see in this photo was decorated with Christmas balls made with sheets of old books. Come on, you can easily make them at home. Do you dare?
THE MOST AUTUMNAL CHRISTMAS GARLAND
Not everything was going to be fir trees! A Christmas garland can also be made from dried autumn leaves. This reddish-brown color will make the whole house overflow with warmth. The stair railing is always a good place.
DECORATE THE STAIRCASE WITH A GREEN GARLAND
Awesome. There are no more words to describe the effect this garland with branches and Christmas flowers causes on the railing of the stairs. The key is to let it fall gracefully and naturally. An outstanding!
DIY PAPER BALLS AND A GARLAND OF GREENS
This proposal is perfect for lovers of crafts and origami. If you are looking for Christmas decorations to decorate stairs, why not make them yourself? Take a look at the big Christmas balls. They are made from sheets of old books! Pine branches as a garland and candelabra and candles to create atmosphere complete the Christmas look of this staircase.
STAIRCASE DECORATED FOR CHRISTMAS WITH LANTERNS AND A PINE GARLAND
A Christmas decoration, yes. But nothing baroque, very in tune with the natural look that this mountain house breathes. This is how this staircase has been dressed, where a garland made of pine branches has been chosen, which also naturally scents the house, and lanterns, which decorate by themselves, whether the candles are lit or not.
A CHRISTMAS GARLAND TO DRESS STAIRS
CANDLES AND LARGE CANDLES: HOW TO DECORATE AN OUTDOOR STAIRCASE
If we take care of the interior decoration to the maximum at Christmas, what less than to do the same with the exterior! This house, a beautiful modernist construction from the beginning of the 20th century, required a decoration to match: elegant and with Duende. And the candles are a guaranteed hit. Here different shaped candles have been combined with candles of various sizes, creating a path of light that welcomes home. It has been used to accompany the decoration with an illuminated Christmas tree.
CANDLES, GARLANDS AND GIFTS TO DECORATE INTERIOR STAIRS
It is not necessary to cram the staircase to dress it for Christmas. Here, the different sections of the railing have been dressed with a small lit green garland and, on the steps, some candles and some gifts wrapped with plaid papers, so fashionable this season.
A VERY NATURAL GARLAND FOR A CHRISTMAS AND COUNTRY STAIRCASE
We cannot forget that we are in a mountain house, that is why the Christmas decoration of the staircase (and the rest of the house ) has been inspired by the nature of its environment. Without going any further, the garland with which the stair railing has been dressed has been made with sprigs of cypress and waxflower collected from the forest. A path of golden balls and candles lights the way on the steps.
A CLASSIC STAIRCASE INSPIRED BY ANCIENT BELGIAN CASTLES
Belgium and its classic constructions are very present in this house. And the beautiful staircase, with an iron railing and marble steps, is inspired by them.
BY THE STAIRS
A corridor, the corner of the staircase, the hole under a window. At home, there are endless dead zones that are super wasted. Avoid it, creating new extra storage spaces, like the one in the image. The empty space next to the ladder has been used to install a practical shoe rack with removable shelves. Open and in view, it allows you to see all the models in one go and save time.
ADAPTED TO SPACE
From side to side and taking advantage of every inch of the bottom of the hole you have. A piece of furniture specifically designed for the small space created by the spiral staircase in this house. But instead of covering it completely, the upper part is left free as a support as a sideboard.
INSIDE THE STEPS
Incredible but true. It is a difficult hole and still sure you have not fallen into a bottle rack. The side of each of the steps becomes a hatch or mini door so that what you are keeping is not seen. It will be your secret compartment.
AND THE FIREWOOD
In a house with a fireplace, storing firewood is essential and in many cases where to do it is not planned. A specific compartment near the fireplace itself is an option but also under the staircase and thus you take advantage of a difficult hole in the house.
NEW FLOORS WITH HARDLY ANY WORKS
They are one of those coatings that give you the opportunity to update your home with almost no mess. That’s why we like to say that they don’t need work. They are installed directly on the ground that you have if it is stable and level. They practically do not stain during installation as they are cut -without arming dust- with a DIY cutter or a specific cutter for laminate floors (it can be rented at specialized surfaces).
THE ORIGINAL STAIRCASE
We kept the position of the main stair in the same place because we considered that it was correct and it was well dimensioned” they explain from Nook Architects. The staircase with white carved wooden bars and wooden tread and handrail leads to the upper floor where the bedrooms are located.
A KITCHEN UNDER THE STAIRS
Although it requires meticulous custom work, the result on a decorative and practical level is priceless: a front wall full of cabinets would be unthinkable, here, on the other hand, it is very beautiful. Less than two meters wide have been stolen from the living room to create the rest of the kitchen and a bar.
REMOVE THE MIRRORS THAT ARE IN FRONT OF THE DOORS
If you have a mirror in front of your front door or in front of any other door, remove it to prevent the energy that enters your house from going out again. You can put the mirror on the other walls, explains Montserrat.
