Because your painted staircase and banister will have such a dramatic effect on your space, we highly recommend a consultation with our interior designer before proceeding. Many of our clients have felt that they avoided making a terrible mistake after talking with our designer. They were much happier with the results she helped them envision than they would have been with what they were originally planning.
The designer will get to know you and your home, explain how your choices will impact the look and feel of your home, and make suggestions that might work better or that might inspire you to tweak or even change your plan. Ultimately, every decision is up to you. Having the support of an interior designer can help you feel more comfortable making those decisions.
