Creating a supremely stylish and storage-friendly stairway is often a design challenge in a new home. While many stairwells offer interest and impact an entryway, it’s important to use a delicate hand when adding extra visual elements or secretive storage compartments. Certain décor, paint and artwork can change the overall ambiance and clash or conflict with an existing design scheme. Here are some ideas for creating a staircase that highlights and doesn’t compete with the charm and character of a home.
