Wall Detailing - Hi, I love the texture you put on the wall of the stairs. I'm curious how this was done? Did you just use and MDF type molding or were 1x's used? Any tips/lessons learned from the install? Thank you for your time!

You may want to contact Synthesis Design, the architect for this project, and ask who they used for a contractor. As far as finding out someone who can build this for you, try browsing our professionals section by your metro.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Unexpected Style for Your Wall
Molding. Molding is a great solution for adding architectural detail on any wall space. Instead of going only around the base or where the wall meets the ceiling, consider several horizontal and vertical panels for a contemporary display.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Beautifully Layered Spaces
7. Provide framed views upward as well as forward. The opening at the top of the stairs invites us to explore what's there.
