5 paint ideas for floors and stairs

Hallway looking a little unloved? Want to give your stairs a quick update? Mini-makeovers with maximum impact are easy

Revamp your staircase and create a stylish walkway with a monochrome color palette. Using jet black for the stairs gives you a dramatic and timeless look, while keeping the walls a fresh white will maximize the impact. Black will hide any scuff marks and give you an elegant staircase that will impress! Try to keep the area free from clutter so that the eye is drawn to the clean lines.

Draw attention in grey

Quickly and easily add interest to the hallway by using unexpectedly dark tones on the flooring. Grey hues can transform unloved spaces, so they’re a perfect way to instantly refresh. Try using a dark charcoal along the hallway – it will draw the eye down and elongate the space. Keeping the hallway decorations to a minimum maintains the flow, so experiment with a delicate side table and a minimalist coat hook.

Get lavish with stairways

If you’re looking for a sumptuously different staircase, a coat of paint can transform your space. A dark blue tone is a quick way to turn a neutral area into an opulent feature. The luxurious color stands out best when contrasted with white walls, railings and furniture, so the focus is kept on the staircase. Decorate with simple, white ornaments for a staircase that wouldn’t look out of place in a boutique hotel.
