Ask A Designer: How To Freshen Up a Frumpy Staircase
In this Ask A Designer column, Gillian Atkins’ shares advice for improving a staircase and foyer.
Question: We’re looking to update our staircase spindles and resurface the treads and risers in wood. For the spindles, we’re torn between simple iron or classic painted white. We gravitate toward a modern farmhouse aesthetic, and we’d love something timeless. Are iron spindles a trend that will scream “2020s,” or do they have staying power? Should we stick with tried-and-true classic white? — J.B., Brooklin, Ont.
