Your staircase might not seem like the most important place to take into consideration when choosing the flooring for your home – after all, it’s not like anyone will be spending any great amount of time on it!
However, your staircase can be made into a standout feature if you choose the right flooring option. Linking one floor to another is an important job, and luckily, we have some great flooring ideas that will make your staircase the new favourite hang-out spot for the whole family!
1. Add Staircase Runners
Staircase runners are a great option for wooden staircases – they can really show off the elegance of wooden finished staircases while also having the benefits of a carpet stairway. Runners are practical for kids to clamber over, and can cosy up the feel of your staircase, without committing to a fully carpeted area. They also provide a layer of protection to your wooden staircase – meaning that gorgeous original wooden finish won’t be getting treated like a drum-kit!
2. Inject a Bold Pattern
A staircase is a great place to think about injecting a splash of colour, or fun pattern into your home. Completely covering your hallway or living spaces in a bright Paisley pattern is probably considered an interior design nightmare – however, a fun pattern on your stairwell can really mix up the feel of your decor and get you loads of compliments! We recommend going for something in keeping with your overall decor, for example, choose the same colour as your hall, but add in some stripes or a funky pattern.
3. Go for a Soft Touch
This is a great idea if you have wooden flooring and banisters throughout your home. Choose a really soft, neutral toned carpet for your stairs. This breaks up the wood, gives a really cosy feel to your stairwell – giving a nod to the comfy beds that await upstairs!
