A staircase doesn’t always seem like it has much prominence, but when they look old and worn out – you suddenly notice them! A staircase can make or break a room, and even transform a hallway. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous with your staircase choices.
- Colourful Safety Staircases
If you have a slippery stairwell or a staircase that needs installing in an area that needs extra protection, anti slip paint is your best bet. Anti-slip paint doesn’t have to be boring, use Coo-Var Suregrip Anti-Slip Floor Paint and take advantage of the colour choice available. This paint will leave you with a rough, textured anti-slip finish when dry, the textured finishes adds character to the stairwell – and provides safety. Whether it’s an indoor staircase or an outdoor one, this paint can be used on a variety of surfaces including wood, metal and concrete.
- Modern Glass Staircases
If you like the modern look, use glass panelling along the handrail. You could even go all the way and have a full-glass staircase! It can be easy to install depending on the system you go for, or can make a great addition to an existing staircase. Glass makes a room look brighter and bigger and will blend in with any existing decoration you have. All you need to do is keep up a good cleaning routine and it’ll always look modern and on-trend. This is often as simple as just wiping the surface every now and again!
- Neat And Functional Fire Escapes and Exits
Fire escapes and emergency exits need to be functional, but there’s nothing wrong with them looking great too! Use tread covers to quickly and easily tidy up an important stairway, especially if it’s old and slippery. 1102 Anti-Slip Stair Tread Covers mean you get anti-slip protection combined with an easy to administer application. All you need to do is glue or screw the pre-formed, glass reinforced tread covers to the stairs. You’ll be good to go and walk on the stairs as normal almost in an instant. Your stairs will look uniform, functional and neat.
- Bold Concrete Stairs
Concrete doesn’t have to be plain, there are a variety of paints you can use to brighten it up. Try a bright, bold statement colour on a small concrete staircase, to instantly add some interest to the area. You can then apply 1701 Self-Adhesive Anti-Slip Treads to the centres. The black will contrast with the bold paint, all whilst providing you with important anti-slip protection.
- Monochrome Staircases
If you want to make a statement, monochrome is the way to go. Ever a classic look that makes you think of sophistication, adding a hint of monochrome to the room can make a dramatic change. Use alternate black and white paints to create a feature in a plain room.
- Rustic Staircases
A rustic staircase can add a homely feel to any room. Bringing the outdoors inside is an easy way to do this. Oak and beautiful textured woods can make fantastic staircases. If you’re lucky enough to have a staircase like this, strip the paint off it and just use a good finish so that the natural beauty of the wood shines through.
- Futuristic Staircases
If you want the contemporary, futuristic look we have the solution for you. Use Ardenbrite Quick Drying Base Coat , Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Solvent Based) and Ardenbrite Protective Glaze for the ultimate metallic finish. If you have a metal handrail, make it stand out with Ardernbrite in silver, gold or more.
- Arty Panelled Staircases
If you love to display artwork in your home, why not use the panelling to your advantage? Use it to display artwork on the staircase itself. You’ll always have something interesting and arty to look at. It can turn a boring staircase into a gallery!
- Carpeted Staircases
A carpeted staircase doesn’t need to be bland. If you combine a wooden staircase with a running strip of carpet or a rug through the middle, it’ll give you a stunning overall finish. By not fully carpeting the staircase, you can still keep your feet warm and show off the wood underneath.
- Staircases with mirrors
A simple transformation to any stair case, is to add mirrors or a mirror mosaic to the riser (the part that you don’t step on!). It can add unique, beautiful effect to your staircase in a few easy steps. All you need is some strong glue and mirrors!
