Royal Home Painters is a well established business with first rate professional painters that take care and time to get the job done right and on time. This company was the only one who prepared a thorough job scope, priced fair and comprehensively - we had absolutely no overages and no surprises. Our choice was to use the very best paint ( Benjamin Moore) and have 3 or 4 coats of paint on... different areas of the house as well as custom staining of our staircases. They sanded between every coat and the result by Royal Painters is more

Very well done. Royal Home Painters has done almost a full renovation in our newly bought house. They removed popcorn from ceiling and made the ceiling smooth and flat, painted the whole house, stained the entrance door, and painted the kitchen cabinets. All perfectly done on-time and with a very short notice before we move in. Milad and Mike arranged the whole project and they were on top of... everything. Very good communication. Overall we are super happy and we have already recommended them to our more

We hired Royal Home Painters to paint the windows, front door and the stucco sill below the windows. The painters, Gerard and his assistant put a lot of effort into making sure the windows would look great. They spent a lot of time removing any rotten wood in the window trim and replacing with wood filler. When they realized that the paint colour we picked out for the stucco was not a good... match, they immediately stopped painting.They were able to remove some of the old caulking that was previously painted to provide a color match sample. The new paint perfectly matched the stucco. They also filled in cracks around the windows with caulking and repainted on top of the caulking. The stucco looks like new.We were very happy with the paint job and would recommend them to more

I had my kitchen cabinets recently done by Royal Home Painters. It used to be a dark brown colour and the transformation into this off white that has brighten up my kitchen, giving it a modernize look. I feel like I have a brand new kitchen for the fraction of the price. Their entire team was professional and got the job done on time. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Painting/Staining Staircase Helps Protect Them!

Your staircase, as previously noted, is among the most heavily trafficked areas in your home. Staining and painting them serves a dual purpose: safeguarding the wood against the constant wear and tear of a busy household and extending the stairs’ longevity. Regular maintenance minimizes the need for extensive repairs, enhancing safety by preventing splinters or damaged wood that could lead to injuries. Elevate both the durability and safety of your stairs with these simple yet effective measures.

Quality Check-In Before Painting/Staining the Stairs

While planning your project, assess your staircases carefully. Identify areas needing replacement or repair, such as rotting or warped wood, dings, or dents. At Royal Home Painters, we excel in addressing these tasks. We also specialize in silencing those bothersome creaks that might disturb your late-night snack excursions. Our team’s skills extend beyond aesthetics, focusing on the structural integrity of your staircases. Let us ensure your staircases are both aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound. 

Beautify Your Staircase and Your Home

For most homeowners, their staircase serves a single function: a means to allow the inhabitants of the home to easily move from one floor to another. While this should be true for everyone, a staircase can also act as the centerpiece to the interior. Freshly painted or stained staircases, when professionally done, can be very eye-catching. Wow your visitors by giving your wooden staircase a full makeover!

Not only will this make your staircase look incredible, but it could also be a big selling point later in the future. Provided that it’s not too bold, which some might not appreciate, a newly stained staircase may be one of the factors which convince a buyer that your home is the right one for them. If not for selling, you can still beautify your home with our Staircase Staining & Painting Services in Toronto. You can count on us to make your home more appealing to you and your friends and family.

You could paint the tread one colour and the riser another, or you could paint every other riser one colour while using the second colour in between if you prefer a wood finish for the stair treads.

Stencils and Stamps: Stencils and stamps offer an easy way to adorn your staircase. You can find these at most home renovation stores. While they shine on risers, enhancing visual interest from the bottom of the staircase and upward, they can also work wonders on treads. Stencils and stamps simplify the creation of designs, making them invaluable for elevating your staircase’s aesthetics.

Words and Numbers:  In addition to patterns, you can add stencils featuring letters, words, and numbers, allowing you to convey messages through staircase painting. Consider adorning each riser with inspirational quotes or snippets from your favorite lyrics. This provides daily motivation as you climb the stairs. Alternatively, numbering the steps lends a modern and clean look while also serving as a fun way to help youngsters learn to count during their stair-climbing adventures.


Wall Mural Creative Stairs Painting Project

Creating a Wall Mural: While we’ve explored various staircase painting ideas primarily centered around the steps themselves, it’s essential to consider the walls as well. Traditionally, hanging pictures along the stairwell or leaving the walls bare are common choices, but if you aim to make your staircase truly stand out, consider a mural. It’s a dynamic option that adds personality and uniqueness. All you need is a theme or image and some creative flair.
If a mural seems too complicated, why not try a more simplistic design with the help of a stencil or create a pattern with stamps? Remember that the walls play a vital role in the overall aesthetic appeal of your staircase, so carefully consider each component’s impact.
