We do not actually give a lot of attention to the stairs in our home, but whether or not we pay attention to it, it is an important component of the house and we use it a number of times in a day. They also play an important part in the aesthetics of your home. 

Stairs do not have to be boring at all! Today, there are many ways to make your stairs look great, let them better and make them stand away. Here are 12 great ideas to give your stairs a new lease of life and make them face every bit elegant they deserve to be!

1. Make the bottom of your stairs fun!

In many homes, we are guilty of leaving the bottom of the stairs barren, making them look like dreaded corners. Instead, perk it up with a cute little dresser and accessories than can instantly lift your home. 

Ensure the colours of the accessories are the same as the stairs so they blend well and do not look like two pieces forcibly put together. In this case, the wood of the stairs goes well with the white mirror and furniture.

2. Light it up!

Instead of trying to obscure the stairs within your home, do the opposite and light them up with pretty fairy lights. This lighting creates a unique fantasy effect of climbing into an ethereal world. When combined with carefully chosen flooring, a brilliant chandler, the final outcome can be dazzling.

These well lit stairs are great for homes with modern interiors and but receive little natural light. Enrapture your visitors with these lightings!

3. Stairs and storage

It is inevitable that stairs occupy a significant amount of space inside the home. Especially in small apartments, it is important to use every little space. Here is a genius idea to utilise the space occupied by the stairs' by creating storage spaces in every little block of the stairs. They can serve as bookshelves and cupboards. Make this design yours, consult an architect!

4. Sculptures from your stairs

Your stairs don’t have to be just a set of railings and steps. Instead, you can beautify them by contouring the wood used to look like organic and elegant shapes that will serve as a sculpture too!

Before designing, keep in mind your needs.If you have children and pets, then you may want strong steps that are safe for your loved ones. But play around if you are single and define your designs accordingly.

5. Spiral staircases never go out of style

Spiral stairways are the part of many homes due to the space saving factor attached with them. If you have spiral staircases at home, then lucky you! Get rid of the boring rails and play with wood to make this staircase a stunning sculpture in itself.
