Stairs are a contained area of the home where you can really give some attention and make a big impact. They have a lot of dimension, covering both vertical and horizontal surfaces. Whether a little paint or new treads, a stair makeover is just begging for fun:

1 Wallpapered treads transformed this stair. To really grasp how amazing this makeover is, see the "before" at Design in Dublin.
2 Painted risers and oars-for-rails helped transform this stair in an Alaskan cabin remodel.
3 A brightly-painted stair and runner in a newly-renovated 1784 Colonial home.
4 We often find ourselves compulsively counting the stairs anyway. Why not a makeover with numbered risers?
