The Value Staircase Painting Can Add to Your House

Depending on the layout of your home, your staircase may be the first thing guests and visitors see, so you want it to make a good impression. Particularly if you’re selling your home, potential buyers pay close attention to the details they’ll need to take care of when moving into their new home. So, you want to show that you’ve cared for your home, staircase painting may be the thing to set you apart. 

It’s amazing how much of a beating your stairs can take over time without you really noticing when they’re in need of staircase painting and a little love. It’s also important to note the value that beautiful stairs can add to the value of your home. To learn more about the value staircase painting adds to your home, keep reading!

Here are some of the ways we know staircase painting can add value to your home:

Protects Against Wear and Tear

Your stairs see a lot of action in their life. Staircase painting or staining your stairs protects the wood from the normal wear and tear of an active household. And a small bit of care now can lengthen the life of the stairs in the future. You’ll also be able to catch damage before it becomes a much more costly issue.

Taking on a job like painting a staircase can also decrease the chances of injuries resulting from splinters (ouch!) or damaged wood.

Quality Check-Up

While you’re in the consideration phase of staircase painting or staining, this is a great time to take the opportunity to check the health of your staircases. Is any wood rotted or warped? Do the stairs need to be sanded or replaced? Are there any dents or dings that need to be filled? You can flex your DIY muscles and take on any of these projects, or you can hire a professional to come in to take care of them for you.

As we previously said, this is the time to maintain the small issues, so they don’t become huge issues.

Fix the creaks and groans 

Painted stairs or stained staircase, especially if accompanied by a thorough inspection and some spot fixes, can lose those creaks and groans that you might be used to by now, so you don’t pay attention to how disruptive they can be to your entire household. It may even be beneficial for you to have a family member test out the stairs while you listen from each room in your home so that you can pinpoint the location of the squeaks and creaks.

New colours for staircase painting

Especially if you’re making significant changes to the look of your home, perhaps renovating upstairs or down, you don’t want to leave the stairs out. Beautifully renovating the rest of your home while failing to touch up your stairs will make them stick out like a sore thumb.

They can be painted or stained to match the rest of your decor, or to act as an accent piece to make your home stand out. At a reasonable cost to you, staircase painting can add a bold statement to your home’s decor. And like any high-quality paint job, well-painted stairs can add value to your home when you are preparing your home for sale and increase appeal to potential buyers. Even if you’re not looking to change up the colour, a fresh stain or coat of paint will do wonders.

Maybe there’s been some damage over the years

Due to the way staircases work, they often lead the way into basements and lower floors. With that can come damage, such as water damage due to flooding. Basements can flood in the spring or summer months when there’s lots of rain, so it’s best to notice if your staircase has warped or is feeling soft. The other thing to watch out for is damage to the stairs from your pet. Quite often, they might be running up and down the staircase countless times per day. This can cause various scratches or wearing down of the carpet. So, be thinking about staircase painting when it comes to freshening things up in this way as well.
