We have been loving hallway transformations which can be easily achieved by painting your bannisters and stairs! This is such an easy way to inject some colour into your space and make your stairs the real focal point of the room.

Here are just some of our favourite hallways we have seen on social who have gone for the monochromatic look…

Top tips when painting your bannisters or stairs:

1. Preparation is key:

If you are painting on new timber, make sure they are rubbed down and primed with a suitable primer. Follow the system according to your chosen paint manufacturer as they will recommend the best primer to use. If you are painting on previously painted timber, be sure to key the surface. Make sure they are clean and free from dirt and dust before you begin painting.

Make sure you choose a paint finish that is suitable for woodwork.

3. Applying with the right products:

Bannisters can be sprayed or painted. If you’re painting with a brush, make sure you’re using the best brush for the job.
