Up and Down, Up and Down

I know, they’re just stairs — a means of moving from one level to another within your home. But as part of any home remodel and something so visible to your guests, it’s an area you can’t neglect. From the onset, the dezine vision was pretty clear — remove the carpet, change the rail because it looked too much like outdoor iron gates and change the steps and risers to hardwood, stained in dark espresso.

Simple right? Not so much when modern/contemporary is the style. Do you know how hard it is to source modern stair rails? After a long search, I was able to find a local supplier that sold customized modern railings. I love stainless steel and wanted to combine it with wood handrails that coordinated with the espresso, hardwood floors.

The result? I’ll let you judge for yourself, but I think it turned out pretty nice!

Best regards, DPC
