Updating split level
Hang up your favorite painting, paint the stairs and show off a playful rug.
Your guests will feel instantly at home and your entryway will never look dated, it’ll look like you!
However, I don’t know what to replace it with (which is why the project has waited this long).
I am hoping your readers will set me on the right path and am open to any suggestions with regard to style and materials.
Whether it’s hardwood or carpet, don’t have three different materials coating the floor and making your family and guests feel like they’ve been sent through a time machine.
Don’t rely on accents, instead rely on your structure and design.
Many people are confused by their value and many people are confused on how to separate their entertaining spaces from their lounging spots.When Pam and I were discussing Kathleen’s dilemma, Pam immediately thought about her post Easy DIY stair rails for a mid century basement remodel — where she suggested a simple and period appropriate stair design for reader Heather’s basement stairs — and then, reader Joel quickly whipped up a sketch.This type of stair railings would be easy to install (consult with a properly licensed professional) and very cost effective, Kathleen might even want to stain it to coordinate with her fabulous Cado wall unit.Although this house is of vintage value, we love how the pathway leading to the dining room is highlighted in such a chic way.
If your split happens to be in a very large, spacious area then you’re in luck.
Whether it’s a collage of golden frames or vintage photos, it’ll help to make it cohesive and more in-the-now.
