Need help with my staircase
May 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My house was built in 1987 so of course the staircase is carpeted and has beautiful wide stringers all he way up; however, they are the typical honey oak color. I don't want to refinish the stringers at this time but I am staining the treads on the stairs a dark walnut. My question is "What color to paint the risers?" The walls in the staircase are a pale yellow. I really want a punch to the stairs, but not way out there kind of a punch. Also, the stairs do not have a "landing" per se they curve so they have the 2 wide "pie shaped" stairs in the curve. If money were no object I have lots of beautiful ideas, but trying to do this on the cheap so any creative ideas besides plain white would be greatly appreciated.
