Traditional staircases aren’t for everyone. If you are interested in making a statement with an original staircase that will leave your neighbors jealous, then you have come to the right place. Use these ideas to take your steps to the next level.

Paint them. Simple and inexpensive, painting your stairs is a quick and easy way to instantly transform them. Let your imagination run wild. Paint is a great way to experiment with design, style, pattern, and color. Don’t be afraid to explore your options to create a truly unique staircase.

Get experimental with the risers. Try mixing things up by adding different materials to your risers like wallpaper, tiles, decorative tape or backsplash. When you add different materials to the risers you can quickly add visual interest to a truly one-of-a-kind staircase.

Pick a stand-out railing. Instead of opting for the traditional railing, look for something that stands out and helps to encompass your distinct style. You can find railings in all sorts of materials, finishes, and designs.

Mix it up. Wood? Stainless Steel? Why not both! Instead of sticking to one design trend, combine the two for an absolutely stunning staircase. This rustic meets contemporary combination is full of texture and stylish flair.

Add an unexpected stair landing. Instead of extending your stairs all the way to the floor, interrupt them with an unexpected landing. Install drawers for extra personality and added storage.

Back-light the staircase. Adding back-lights creates a staircase that glows day and night. You won’t need to worry about a night-light with this look!

For a truly unique staircase inspired entirely by you, work with a builder to customize the staircase of your dreams. A builder will know building codes and can help you realize your dreams in a safe and functional manner.
