Simple Stairs and Landing makeover ideas

One of the rooms, if you can call the landing a room, that was still on the makeover hitlist in my home was the stairs and landing. Hopefully this blog post will give you lots of ideas for your stairs and landing.

I wanted to keep the décor neutral so it would match with our bedroom and create more of a flow from one area to another. The area isn't completely finished, we still need to put up a blind up on the landing window and finish off the gallery wall leading up the stairs, plus a bit of finishing off with the paintwork. We are also having new doors fitted on the bedroom this month, which will match the doors we have downstairs. Never underestimate the impact changing your internal doors can have on the feel of a room.


My main inspiration for the upstairs landing is from @myfirsthomebyclaire account on Instagram. I have had the pictures of her stairs and landing saved on my Instagram for yonks, I just love the neutral colours she has used and the styling is beautiful.

So taking these pics as inspiration I began planning out my landing. On my list was, mirrors, shelving and a half moon table, although my landing is a different shape from Claire's I had planned out where I wanted each element. Most of the items were from The Range, but I sourced the table second hand from Facebook Market place, for £25 a few licks of trusty Rustoleum pure white and it looks brand new!

Time for some before pics!

And here is the finished result, I am so pleased with it and think it looks so much more inviting now than before. You can find all products I have used listed below with links where I can find them, some links are affiliate links (AD)

The walls are painted in Dulux Natural Hessian, one of my favourite colours, I have also used it in my bedroom and en-suite.

* Picure shelves were from Home bargains

* Trio of mirrors from The Range - similar found as round ones out of stock

* Half-Moon Table - second hand from Facebook Market place

* floral prints from The Range

* Mantle Clock - The Range

* Metal flower plaque - The Range

* Small glass vase with faux flowers (on shelves)- The Range

* Lavender faux flowers in glass vase (on table)- The Range

* Trailing faux plant - Next

* Succulent (table) - Homebase

All in all this revamp has cost me less than £100, I would always advise to reuse accessories from around your home first before buying new as well as furniture. You can always pic up second hand furniture as well, saving your self a fortune!
