I'm about to sand and finish a bunch of stairs and I'm wondering
whether I can do reasonably do anyithing interesting with the rises
other than paint them white. My concern is that if I finish them in the
same way as the treads it'll give it an undesirable ski lodge feel.
Maybe there's a website with pictures where I could get some good
Most stairs I have seen with white risers (in traditional N E style homes)
also have a carpet runner up the middle. Most houses built in last 30 years
don't even have hardwood on the stairs- they assume from the get-go that
stairs will have W/W carpet. I prefer hardwood stairs, but I hate vacuuming.
Note well that you do not want a gloss finish on the treads- very slippery
when walking the stairs in stocking feet.
