How to rejuvenate your staircase…
Add a Hardwood Cap or Handrail
Adding a hardwood cap or handrail to a stair case can create a beautiful contrast among colours and add a new feature piece. Hardwood creates a beautiful and lasting stylish finish so is a great way to inject some life into your staircase. If you keep the natural finish of the wood contrasting with the spindles then you create a stunning visual effect that will lift the area.
Using natural materials such as hardwood is a great way to add a calming effect on your home, as natural woods evoke feelings of nature, as well as traditional and elegant style.
Update your Spindles
Updating the spindles of your staircase could be the easiest way to update your staircase. With standard staircases, you often get the standard set of stair spindles, however changing these is the best way to inject some personality into your staircase. You can easily swap the spindles out for straight edged modern spindles or more traditional shapes to evoke that classic style.
You can also mix and match styles of spindles to add even more personality to your staircase.
Create a New Feature Step
The first impression to your staircase can be the first step of your staircase. You can change the first sep of your staircase by changing the newel and adding in a new shape or style of step as that first element of your stairway.
If you have the space at the bottom of your staircase, you can add a D-End step to the staircase, or even a bespoke made wooden step to give the overall design a new flow.
Give It a New Finish
A very common reason for your stairway or staircase to look worn and tired is the existing paint or polish not being refreshed for a while. You could be amazed by the effects of a fresh coat of paint or varnish to bring out the natural grain of the wood.
