Design considerations when decorating staircases

limed wood effect and subtle distressing on traditional staircase

While it is often desirable to make a feature out of a staircase, a bold decorative treatment is not always the answer, as it can seem out of character. Here, a limed wood effect and subtle distressing soften the appearance of a traditional wooden staircase, and echo the subtle pink tint of the surrounding walls.

In a double height living space, a galleried walkway allows the full height of the walls to be used for storing books and gives the seating area a more human and intimate scale. The perforated metal staircase is not set at an angle purely for dramatic effect – it also maximizes the amount of clear living space.
