Staircase is usually the first architectural element of interior to see. Unfortunately, because of everyday use they may seem dull and rub away quickly. But stairs may look amazing if you use some creativity and a can of paint! If you love the fresh look and easy-to-sweep finish of painted stairs these ideas are just for you. Painting the stairs can brighten the area, even when the rest of the walls are not refreshed. More adventurous homeowners can even paint a faux runner on the stair treads to create the appearance of carpeting. They may be real eye-catchers or just a colour accent in a light space.
