Our Staircase Makeover Before and After

We have made some great progress on some updates to our home. Today, I wanted to share some before and after photos of our staircase makeover. Many people are concerned about the costs of revamping their staircase, but someone like Pear Stairs will be able to offer you a competitive price. Before I begin, here are a few other things we have done to upgrade our house so far.

OK that was a longer list than I anticipated! Geesh! Anyway, we wanted to get rid of the carpet on the stairs and all of the upstairs. We decided on replacing it with hardwood. Here are the stairs before. They were brown and white. Nice, but I feel is a little outdated, especially with our cement floors.

To save some money, we kept the existing handrails and just painted them black. You can see some of the progress photos of this staircase here. This is the first floor. We chose a pewter ash color.

We decided on 6” molding on the landing to match the rest of the molding downstairs.

I loved how it turned out. We chose a hardwood with a 30 year warranty as well. I also noticed that I keep it much cleaner than I did when it was carpet because you can see the dog hair and dust. BUT that is fine by me… better actually.
