Five Areas of Your Home You Never Thought to Paint
Grab your brushes and get ready to reinvigorate your space
Paint is the number one tool in a DIYer’s arsenal, providing the power to totally transform the look of your home without breaking the bank. In the matter of just a few hours, stuffy rooms can become inviting, dreary walls can turn vibrant, and focal points can grab attention once more.
Whether you’ve already tackled the major areas of your house or are simply looking for projects that make an impact, here are five unexpected areas of your home to overhaul with a fresh paint job.
3. Staircase Risers
Your staircase should be more than an avenue to get from one floor to another. Often located in the foyer, stairs are usually the first thing guests see, which means that a painted staircase can serve as a major décor focal point. Keep it traditional with two-toned stairs that match the stain of your floors or for a pop of color, paint your treads a playful hue, like aqua or yellow.
For a stop-in-your-tracks look, consider an ombre or rainbow colorblock stair riser design, or create a geometric pattern using different widths of painter’s tape. Just be sure to apply FrogTape® to protect your skirtboard and handrail from paint bleed before beginning.
A little paint can go a long way, especially when refreshing often-used, yet overlooked, areas of your home.
