15 basement stairway ideas to help inspire you to transform your space. Whether you are looking for stair decor and ways to improve your stairs with just decorating or you are ready to get your DIY on and change out balusters or a handrail… there’s going to be lots of inspiration for your basement staircase in this post.
As you probably know, I recently shared my drab to beautiful basement stair reveal. As I was filing away inspiration for my project, I was inspired by other peoples’ homes and how they were making their lower level stairs work for them. Whether it be by adding statement lighting above the stairs or wallpaper on the walls, each space had something I felt inspired by.
I got to thinking how basement stairways can be overlooked and, in general, a hard place to envision how home decor would look. With that in mind, I wanted to share spaces and ideas that inspired me or that I thought would inspire you in transforming your staircase.
I would have loved to have tall ceilings going down to our basement so that I could have added a hanging pendant. I find statement lighting so dreamy in all situations. So, if you have ceilings that will accommodate a great light, install one! You won’t regret it.
