Adding Unexpected Color to Your Home
January 9, 2008 § 16 Comments
Next time you feel inspired to add color to your home, consider painting the stair risers on your front staircase. Usually they are painted white, a nice contrast against the wooden stair treads, but how practical is that. It doesn’t take long before the riser is all scuffed up with black shoe marks going up the stairs. Why not solve that problem by painting the risers a different color, something darker that will hide the shoe marks but will coordinate with your decor.
You can take a color out of the tile in the entryway or borrow the color from an adjoining room. Either way, the stairs will become a more important feature in your decorating scheme and yet another place to add some unexpected color to your home.
