Count Your Steps

These stairs earn an A+ in creativity! Design by Sarah Richardson

Multicolored Hues

Painting each stair riser a different color can add a pop of color to an otherwise unnoticed space and depth to a small staircase area. Design by Rate My Space contributor KITTENCAMPBELL.

Walkway Wisdom

The front porch stairs to an ocean-themed curb appeal makeover are home to a paraphrased quote by Loren Eiseley, an American anthropologist.

One Stripe at a Time

Cortney and Bob Novogratz of Sixx Design gave these stairs some significant girl power. Decorating a feminine living room on their show, HGTV's Home by Novogratz, they were sure to incorporate the staircase as an important decorating opportunity.

Number the Way

Black-stenciled numbers on the stair risers add fun and creative touch in a subtle manner.


With paint, stencils and a little time, you can personalize your stairs with a range of textures, patterns and colors.

Tile Substitute

Instead of continuing a losing battle with scuff marks, Rate My Space user katbeveridge painted the white risers to look like tile.
