Step It Up

Most homes built today have more than one story.  I also believe that stairs help tell a story within the home. So let’s look at a few ways that you can “step up” your game with gorgeous takes on the staircase while setting the stage for the story YOU want to tell in your home. 

For starters, think about how you can make a statement with the banister. Go for something original and thought-provoking to tell a story of ingenuity. 

Runners look gorgeous while protecting your stairs and also weave a tale of sophistication and attention to detail.

Fronts of steps are an empty canvas — getting creative with them shares a story about artistry and vision.

Using that empty space underneath the stairs for something fantastic (like clever storage) tells a tale of efficiency and organization.

And you thought stairs were a just a means of access! Imagine all of the options before you as you re-think the space that connects one floor to the next, and be sure to see my Step Up Pinterest board for more clever ideas!
