    Stairs can be an afterthought when it comes to designing a space. Dress up this high-visibility area with simple, big-impact fixes like paint, wallpaper and family photos.

    Dress up your staircase with this trendy ombre look featured on HGTV's Cousins Undercover. Start at the bottom with a favorite hue, then add a little more white paint to the mix each time you move up to the next riser (hunky HGTV host not included).

      Go ombre: Ombre isn’t just for hair and clothes – it’s popping up on staircases too. Start with a base color and add a touch of white paint each time you move up a riser for this cool fading effect. Sexy Anthony Carrino not included. -

      For a more subtle staircase accent, create a trendy ombre look like John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino (pictured) did here on HGTV's Cousins Undercover. Start at the bottom with a favorite hue, then add a little more white paint to the mix each time you move up to the next riser.
