For being such a highly used part of your home, basement staircases are often overlooked when it comes to home design. Coming up with unique basement stairwell ideas can be difficult or seem overwhelming but it is far easier than you think.

Just repainting your steps can give them a bright fresh feel, you can choose to fully paint the steps or pick only the threads or risers. Speaking of risers maybe try a fun patterned peel-and-stick wallpaper on the face of each riser to add a fun pop of interest. If your stairs are heavily scuffed or damaged to the point a coat of paint just won’t cut it, you can cover them with a stair runner, a long thin carpet designed to be attached to the length of your stairs that are perfect for covering any blemishes. If you are ready to give some love to such a highly used part of your home, keep reading below to see our list of basement stairs ideas.
