Has the paint chipped off, has it changed, or maybe it’s because the new wall color suddenly doesn’t match the color of the interior staircase? Then there is only one thing left – paint the steps and banisters and let the hallway shine in new splendor. We’ll give you a few tips and show you inspiring examples of color combinations for the stairwell. Let yourself be inspired and renovate the entrance area – depending on the length of the stairs and the area, you will need between a few hours and a weekend for your project.

Painting the banisters – renovating step by step

The first step is tidying up – you must put away all furniture, carpets, statues and vases that are inextricably linked. Then carefully cover the floor with tape and foil. Now you need to carefully remove the old paint / varnish /, then replace the masking film with new one and at the end wipe off the dust with a wet cloth. Let the railings dry off / for one night for example / and the next day you can apply the new paint with great care. For this you need a special brush – if possible, paint the railing in one piece.

Choosing the right color is of course a matter of taste – in any case, there has been a tendency lately for the railings to add color accents in the hallway. The more colorful the better! These are then color-coordinated with the lighting, decoration or wall shelves and in this way create a seamless transition between the hallway and living area. Let yourself be inspired by the examples in the photo gallery below.
