3 Cool Ways to Decorate Your Staircase

Remember the bygone era of staircase walls that were truly littered with family photos? Pictures both fading and new simply crammed onto the  walls, making the staircase somewhat of a lesson in family history but not too interesting to guests.

These days, you don’t have to have a family in order to live in a larger home and even if you do, many people choose to post family photos online for relatives and friends, thus the need to hang so many on the walls has become somewhat obsolete.

If you’re looking for ways to decorate the walls of your staircase without all of the family photos, check out these 3 cool ideas below!

Be Minamalist with Arrows

We love these arrows that are both directional and decorative! Whether you’re pointing them up or pointing them down, they are a fun way to add a little something to your staircase walls without going overboard.  Grab a set of three for $48 from Three Potato Four.

Do It With Decals

We’ve written before about how easy, inexpensive and fun it can be to decorate with wall decals, so why not utilize them on the walls of your staircase as well? Decal art can be inspiration, fun or directional!

Forget the Walls

If you are in a position to make alterations to your home, why not skip the walls all together and opt for something a little more out-of-the-ordinary? Bloggers from all over the world are posting pictures of how they turned their actual staircases into works of art by using a little paint (although technically, you could also utilize smaller versions of the decals like the ones we mentioned above) and some imagination! Check out a few of our favorite designs below.
