Another way to decorate your stairs is to use wallpaper, adhesive paper or tiles to cover the stair risers.
Want stair with a slightly vintage look ? Use some concrete tiles to cover the stair risers. However, and even if the final result is really beautiful, you need to know that this kind of work needs to be done by a professional. Indeed, you need to cut your tiles to make them fit perfectly with your stair risers and it’s really not easy.
Perfect for beginners, wallpapering is easy to make and can be done really fast. We love the one used on the second photo. To decorate your step risers with a pretty floral pattern (or any other one), all you have to do is to apply a coat of primer on your stair risers. Then, choose the wallpaper patterns you love most and adhere to with PVA glue.
Finally, you can also use adhesive paper to revamp your stairs. Just go on Etsy and find the one you are in love with. For a really original and trendy look, mix the patterns. If you want something cleaner, opt for the same pattern on all stair risers. It’s up to you !
