Stairway help please
April 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Help please! Have selected natural color grade 3 maple floors in an open floor plan craftsman type home. All trim is to be painted white but interior door slabs will be stained a darker color. My cabinets are a darker rustic alder. My dilemma is our open stairway to lower level. Will have natural maple treads(one end exposed, rest carpeted) I am thinking of doing the risers and skirt board in the maple too and then the railings, baluster and newel posts in darker stained wood to match the doors. Not really wanting white balusters. There is a large window in the stairway which is to trimmed out in white. Can't quite picture this in my mind....would love suggestions ..need to order stair parts tomorrow. Thanks
