The painted stair treads and risers can change how your room looks drastically because of the changed colors. The coat of the paint is going to change the plain wooden stairs in interesting and focal point at your home. Even if there are many ways that you can paint the risers or treads, the best way is painting the stairs to be visually interesting and to create the contrast within the risers with the treads.

You may add patterns or designs on the carpet and each way the stairs will look unique and will be truly owned by you.
