Contemporary Staircase Ideas – When you have an open contemporary staircase that goes into the room on the lower floor you have a painting challenge. Since the staircase acts as the link between the lower and upper floor, you may feel torn between matching wall color to one or other levels. Determine your desire for continuity in your home to decide whether to stop painting a room next to the stairs.
Choose wall colors in the room on the lower level and the hallway or room on the upper level for contemporary staircase. If the wall color is the same, you have no decision to make because you can continue with the same color on the walls upstairs to the second floor. Find the end point on the wall of the staircase that divides the wall into the room. This will generally be the point where the wall ends at the top of the stairs. Continue the wall color from the room along this whole wall of continuity.
Paint the opposite wall of the contemporary staircase the same color as the other wall of continuity. This wall will continue up to the second level in the hallway or room on the second floor. Paint the walls on the second floor a different color by starting different color where the staircase wall connects to the upstairs wall.
