How to paint a stairwell: expert advice for painting your home’s tallest space


Stairwells are essentially the area directly above and around your home’s staircase. Usually at the main entrance to your home, they’re the first area guests step into, so making a good impression is paramount. A beautifully decorated stairwell with a smart runner up the stairs, will make it a pleasure to come home.

Staircase ideas and stairwells are often double height – or rather the full height of a property excluding the loft – and thus represent the tallest walls and highest ceiling you’ll ever need to paint inside your home. If you have the budget for a professional decorator to do just one project for you, we recommend you invest it here!
