What colour should I use for risers/ spindles? - Off white walls and tile flooring. Cabinetry in kitchen/bathrooms is espresso brown. Should we do off white spindles and risers? Or just off white spindles? or just off white risers?

Without having seen your home it's difficult to advise you on the best solution for your space. However, as a general rule, the more white you paint the lighter your stairs will look and become less of a focal point. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply Margarida! I added the pic of our stairs to my profile pic if that helps. The kitchen has dark brown cabinetry/stainless steel appliances, we have a dark brown table and a brown sofa set with beige carpets. We haven't painted the walls yet as we have just moved in. I'm wondering if white spindles and white risers would be too much white.
