A cozy little spot perfect for displaying art or curling up with a good book, there are so many possibility to consider. When deciding how you would like to style your staircase landing, Acadia Stairs recommends accentuating the style of the rest of your home to give yourself a special little place that guests can admire and you can enjoy.

Install Shelving

When it comes to decorating your home, there is nothing better than creating a space that not only looks stylish but also serves a purpose. Adding built-in shelving to your stair’s landing is one great way to maximize your space, whether you use the shelves to display decorative pieces, stack all your favorite books or hold bins filled with toys your children need to put away before bedtime.

You can also install a section of shelving in place of a railing at the top of your stairs, perfect for putting a chair next to, creating a cozy reading nook.

Add Seating

Whether you create a fun little window seat or add a set of plush chairs to your staircase landing, this little spot to sit and relax will soon become one of your favorite places to escape to. A space where you can relax for a few minutes after putting your children to bed or sip your morning coffee while enjoying the sunrise, a staircase landing with seating is a stylish yet functional space.

When choosing the seating for your staircase landing, we recommend choosing chairs that would pair well with the furniture in the downstairs of your home, creating a feeling of continuity as you walk to the top of the stairs and view them.

Another idea we love is to fill your staircase landing with artwork. From family photos to prints from your favorite artist, there are many possibilities when it comes to art – all of which will add an extra touch of style to your space. When choosing your artwork, try to find pieces that incorporate colors from both below and above your stairs to help the two separate areas blend together.
