Our Favourite Seasonal Staircase Ideas

Your hallway is the first room your visitor will see, so why not dress up your bannisters and balustrades with our seasonal staircase ideas to make a wonderfully festive first impression. Keep your space neat and tidy by clearing out accumulated clutter from your under-the-stairs cupboard and turn it into handy storage for your guests’ coats and shoes. That way, the only focus will be on your beautiful hallway and fantastic decorations.

Light It Up

At this time of year, the soft glow of candlelight is both festive and romantic and can be achieved quite easily with faux candles that flicker like the real thing. Nothing says Christmas quite like fairy lights. Interweave them with garlands along your staircase bannister or hang around feature windows or picture frames.

Stockings Up!

Stockings look fabulous hanging from your staircase and are a seasonal twist on hanging them from your mantelpiece. It’s a great alternative if you have a real fire or wood-burner in your living area. Hang them from newel posts or balustrades so that everyone can see them.

Make Your Staircase the Main Attraction with a Garland

No seasonal staircase would be complete without a Christmas garland. Whether they’re natural or synthetic, made of foliage or tinsel, they look amazing wrapped around the handrail. Decorate with real pine cones, eucalyptus or sticks of cinnamon for a sweet and subtle Christmassy aroma.

Scent with Love

Christmas has a wonderfully spicy scent all of its own. One of our favourites includes Winter by The White Company. The delicious, warm wafts of gingerbread, Christmas cake and mulled wine can be captured in candles and scented sticks. Place these festive flavours on your hall table or a shelf in your entrance, inviting visitors to get into the Christmas spirit.

Create a Cosy Seating Area

Do you have a seating area in your hallway? If you do, then you’ll know how handy it is for when you’re putting on shoes or simply waiting for people. Why not give it the festive treatment by adding a cosy chenille throw or introduce a little hygge with a woven rug and cushions. Our favourite ideas often involve texture, so adding richly coloured rugs and tapestries in seasonal colours and patterns also help to promote a feeling of homely cosiness.

Stylish Staircase Ideas

Don’t forget, your staircase is the largest and often the most underrated piece of furniture in your home. It’s the piece everyone entering your home will see first so if your hallway is looking a little tired then why not invest in a bespoke staircase renovation? It’s incredible, but in as little as 48 hours, your staircase could be reinvented and your entire space revived with no messy building work or planning permission required.

You could go modern with glass that’ll allow natural light to flow through smaller rooms or recesses. One of our most popular staircase ideas is a unique industrial-inspired design in antique brass or matte black – it can instantly update your entrance. High quality, hand-crafted timber spindles, newels and treads can re-invigorate your space and make your whole staircase look and feel like new.

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone.

We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
