If you have a basement and you want to turn it into a usable space, you must first consider the safeness of the stairs. You can start the basement remodel and remodel of the stairs at the same time. There are a few ideas for decorating the stairs leading to your basement.
Carefully Site Staircase
If the room above and the floor of the basement are both carpeted, you probably want to carpet the stairs too. If it is a new stairs you’re building or you’re relocating to an existing one, think about what areas will be connected before deciding on placement.
Avoid connecting a quiet area to a noisy one. For example, a staircase from the basement media room or game room that leads to a home office or bedroom upstairs could be harmful. Stairs should be built parallel to ceiling joists to save on materials and time.
Open the Stairway for an Airy Look
Opening the enclosed stairway and removing the door of the basement will create a light airy feeling in the passage to the underground living space. A bar space with two refrigerators for drinks – one for wine and the other for soft drinks – will separate the basement family room from the guest bedroom.
Use the Staircase Wall for Storage
The design of the staircase you choose will depend on local building codes, available space, and the style of your home. If you choose a U-shaped design, consider using the lower staircase wall to work as display and storage space. These cabinets flank a basement bar area.
Take Advantage of Space under the Stairs
Create accessible storage space by taking advantage of the space under the stairs. Baskets placed on the shelves are stylish storage solutions for a variety of things that make their way to the basement.
Design for a Smooth Transition
The stairs are a transitional space, and materials you use for them convey a lot of message about the nature of the space they are leading to. You can use a combination of carpets, thick stone treads and dark wood to adorn the flooring of the stairs.
Stencil the Stairs
Customize ordinary wood stairs with stencils. You can paint the steps with homemade stencils from floor-and-deck enamel material. To avoid injuries, avoid high gloss finishes and paints that can be slippery.
Add Style with a Custom Stair Rail
To ensure continuity, the same stone tile used in the staircase should continue into the guest suite in the basement. Work with a jeweler to design a custom stair rail for your home.
