3 Ways to Make a Design Statement With Your Staircase

When it comes to design, we often focus on the big projects—kitchens, living spaces, a whole house, etc. But the little areas can pack just as big of a punch. One area that we love getting creative with is a staircase. When building a new home or remodeling, a staircase is a great place to make a statement. 

Staircases are often overlooked as a design feature, but there are a lot of ways you can take them to the next level and add a bit of a wow factor to your home. Below you’ll find 3 ways you can turn your staircase into a statement piece.

1. Runners

From patterns and shapes to vintage rugs, you can go wild on a staircase runner and really make it a reflection of your style. If you’re feeling a bit extra, consider adding staircase rods. Little design details like staircase rods can really elevate a space. 

2. Railings

There’s something about a staircase railing that feels a bit magical. Maybe it’s because we used to slide down them as kids, or maybe it’s because they often seem to be the backdrop to pivotal moments in movies. (I’m thinking about the infamous scene where Rhett carries Scarlett up the stairs). Either way, we love a statement railing. 

There are nearly endless designs for staircase railing options. You can explore custom metal designs, horizontal cables, or traditional turned-wood spindles to create a staircase railing that’s a showstopper. 

3. Wall Treatments

 Finally, don’t forget about wall treatments. Sometimes staircase walls can be hard to decorate, but there are plenty of creative options. 

If you’re looking for a simpler option, consider adding art. You could do this in the form of the traditional picture wall or, if you’re wanting a more modern aesthetic, try out a large piece of art. 

If you’re up for a more involved design element, you can add custom woodwork or wainscotting. And last but not least, there’s always statement wallpaper. This can be a really fun option, as the choices are nearly limitless.
