Since we had to have our hardwood floors sanded and refinished so we opted to go darker on the stain to update the floors so they looked more contemporary.

We also decided to go for a more modern look with a glass and steel railing.

Our new house is a split level so unfortunately we have a lot of stairs.

If yes, a spiral railing would be quite an intrigue for you.You can also go with rustic rails or metallic rails featuring intricate design detail.Nowadays, you can even pick accented railing or glass railing to make a bold design statement.It’s the same paint we have used on the trim and doors throughout the house so it looks cohesive and flows well which is important with our open concept layout.

If you are painting the stair treads you will need to use a specialty floor paint, regular latex paints aren’t tough enough to last on a surface that gets foot traffic.

So we’ve definitely made some progress since Day 1.
