It is not easy to decorate the stairway wall because it is a challenging space to work with owing to its peculiar shape, uneven height and weird location. Making the wall appear balanced is the key to an ideal decoration. You may consider the ideas below when decorating your stairway wall.
When painting the stairway wall, the best technique is by applying faux painting techniques. You can paint the wall with a bold, complementary color or a completely different shade to match with the overall color scheme of the room if it is separated from other walls of your living room. Stenciling, stamping, sponging and ragging are the painting techniques that can be used to add
beautiful designs, textures and patterns to the wall to beautify it further.
Applying the proper light fixtures is a must to illuminate the beautiful wall patterns. You can also paint the wall using vertical or horizontal stripes to make it appear taller or wider respectively. This technique is generally used for the walls of the basement stairways which are constructed in a confined space. When choosing the accessories applied to embellish the wall, you have to remember that they must be in accordance to its size, location and paint color. For instance, large frames on a small wall will make it look too shabby. Similarly, small pieces of artwork on a large wall will make them disappear.
