White hallway with grey painted stair runner

White hallway with grey painted stair runner

Take an innovative approach to painting your staircase. Rather than one colour of paint, choose two so that you create the effect of a stair runner. Paint banisters white so the grey really stands out and you don’t have lots of different shades to confuse the look. And make masking tape your friend to get a straight line.
