How will you be spending your Easter bank holiday weekend? While the temptation may be to lie on a sofa, eating your own body weight in chocolate, why not think about taking on the spring stair makeover challenge?
The hallway a living, breathing mood board of your style, home and family life, but more often than not, the stairs are neglected, used as a dumping ground by the kids and is always at the bottom of the home improvement priority list.
But it really doesn't take much to refresh your hallway. Apart from the obvious lick of paint and drill sergeant discipline needed to ensure the children use the neat new storage system, there is one feature that can make a dramatic difference to the hallway’s look and feel... the staircase.
Upgrading the handrail and spindle designs on your staircase is a quick and easy process that can make a real difference to your home. In many cases, it can be completed as a DIY project in less than a weekend, especially with the help of Richard Burbidge’s new stair renovation tool, which provides all the information and inspiration needed to transform for your stairs in a matter of days.
By upgrading your stairparts and adding a new lick of paint or feature wallpaper to your hallway you can help to ensure it is looking fresh and clean for the year ahead. The Immix range from Richard Burbidge can even help to let a little more sunshine in to your home, as the striking glass infill panels reflect light and will make your hallway appear more spacious and light. Exuding luxury, Immix offers an affordable way to make a real style statement, creating a stunning centrepiece in your home. Available in white oak, and supplied with gun-metal connectors or fittings, and is also available with a choice of solid wood spindles.
Alternatively, the Elements range, with its fusion of black iron twisted spindles and wood balusters, creates drama and texture, adding charm and character to any style of home, including vintage, contemporary, rustic and retro.
