Twas the lead up to Christmas…cue frantic shopping, festive baking and, for those of us inundated with visitors, last minute home improvements.
A new sofa bed for the spare room, a lick of paint in the living room and a bigger, sturdier table for the dining room may all be on the cards. However, there is one area of the home that is used the most around the festive period, the hallway, and giving it a new lease of life is a lot easier than you think.
The ‘pop-rounders’ will be out on force, dropping presents off for the kids or hand delivering cards. Many of these visitors rarely get past the entrance so your hallway will be on display to a variety of friends, acquaintances, neighbours and carol singers, making it a key priority if you are considering any home improvement projects this season.
If your hallway is looking less than wonderful at this time of year then there is one simple way add a bit of Christmas sparkle: upgrade your stairparts. This may seem like a Christmas wish, rather than an achievable project, but renewing your stairs is actually much quicker and more hassle-free than you might think.
It is more than achievable to renew your balustrade before Christmas. There is a perception that it is a large, unyielding task, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In most cases, new stairparts can be installed in a day, especially if you select a range with pre-cut spindles and pre-drilled hand and baserails, such as the Fusion, Immix or Elements range from Richard Burbidge.
The difference a new balustrade can make to your hallway is incredible, and by choosing black iron spindles or glass panels you can create a stylish focal point, making your stairs really sparkle this Christmas.
