Reasons To Paint A Staircase
There are some good reasons to paint a staircase in your home. Maybe you have carpeted stairs and it’s time to get rid of the carpet. Or you may have old wood floors and stair treads that need a bit of a makeover. And there’s nothing wrong with painting a staircase just for fun!
A painted staircase doesn’t have to be wild and crazy. A staircase can even be painted to look like it’s made of fancier stuff, like the faux teak staircase pictured above. Just use your imagination and paint your staircase to look amazing!
If you do paint a staircase, consider adding clear non-skid stair tape to the treads once the paint thoroughly dries.
