Staircases are typically one of the most visuals areas of a home because they can take up a significant amount of space and are usually situated near the front door or main living areas. Decorating staircase walls to complement the style of your home and the rest of your decor can be a good idea. Here are some useful tips to decorating staircase walls. Hang mirrors, artwork, family pictures or other items on the walls surrounding the stairs if the walls don’t have a busy wallpaper design or other details that would make it overwhelming. You can hang pictures or artwork that stays at eye level as you go up the stairs, or decorate the entire wall if it covers more than one floor. For example, hang empty frames the entire length of the wall or a large tapestry to avoid having a ton of blank wall space above the stairs. Space your pictures or artwork a few inches apart if you want to hang pictures that go up the stairs.
Keep the images related by choosing a particular theme, or use the same coloured frames or mats. Black-and-white images are one way to keep random pictures visually related. Wall sconces or ironwork provide an alternative to mirrors, pictures and artwork. Another tips to decorating staircase walls is using murals. If you really want your staircase to stand out, then consider painting a mural or design that goes up the stairs. This could be as simple as a leaf or flower pattern that follows the stairs or it can be a larger and more intricate mural.
