How to DIY Your Staircase Makeover 

Your staircase sees plenty of foot traffic, which means from time to time it may need a little extra TLC! While it’s best to have your staircase installed by professionals, there are multiple parts to your stairs that you can be swapped out for an updated and refreshed look that fits your design style. 

Crown Heritage has a wide variety of stair parts that you can pick from your local Lowe’s to design and DIY your staircase to fit your home style preference! 


When picking the following for your steps, it’s common and traditional to use the flooring that is used throughout the rest of your home. This creates a cohesive look that transitions smoothly from upstairs to downstairs. However, when working on a DIY project, you can be as creative as you like! You can sand your stairs to refinish them with a new stain to fit your design preference or swap out your original stairs with fresh flooring or carpet. 


Balusters add an effortless design element to your stairs. Try swapping out your balusters for balusters from Crown Heritage! Crown Heritage offers balusters in primed poplar, powder-coated aluminum, red oak, natural poplar wood, black stainless steel, natural pine, and more! You can install these balusters to create contrast and geometric patterns.

Newel Posts

Crown Heritage newel posts are available in the same finishes and materials as the balusters. You can either match your balusters and newel posts or pick a complimentary newel post to create contrast on your stairs. 


Don’t forget about the walls! You can add pops of color with paint, a variety of wall mouldings, unique lighting fixtures, or wallpaper to create a unique charm that makes a house cozy and inviting! 


Don’t overlook adding decor to your stairs! You can hang art, add colorful runner rugs, or add plants to stair landings to add more interest and design to an often overlooked space in the home.
