Fabulous Stair Ideas with a Moroccan Feel!

Looking for stair ideas and inspirations? Stairs are a major part of a home. A home-makeover project would be incomplete without revamping the stairways. You can find an ocean’s worth of interior decorating inspiration in the architecture, colors, designs and shapes from the exotic east. Whether you’re looking for stairs to go along with the Moroccan vibe in your home or are just planning to give them an oriental touch, here’s how you can take advantage of popular trends and bring it to your stairway-

Moroccan tiled staircase

Add interest to your stair risers by using moroccan tile. You can choose from a variety of patterns, colors and material.  Moroccan tile risers let you bring Morocco right into your home. It is a direct reflection of the fountains found in regions like Fes and Marrakech in Morocco. Tile risers for stairs give you plenty of freedom to play with patterns. Add Moroccan mosaic tiles in unique, interesting patterns. Draw attention to your stairway with a bold mix of colors if the color of the walls and surrounding furniture is mostly neutral.

Covering risers with decorative tiles can help bring a burst of color, design detail and increased durability to the entire stairway.  You can go ahead and opt for real tiles or just choose to cover your stairs with the easy peel and stick tile available on the market.

Moroccan stenciled stair risers

Stenciled staircase risers are now trending among both interior designers and home owners who are willing to try DIY projects. Pick stencils in Moroccan designs and give your stairs a touch of the oriental aesthetic. You can get creative and choose to add different patterns to each stair riser or a different design for alternate stairs.

Moroccan Wallpapered staircase

If you want to decorate your stairs with a Moroccan theme but don’t want to incorporate any major changes, or costly ones, wallpapered staircases is the best bet. They are easy to put up and inexpensive. You can also opt for vinyl stair decals. There is a plus point to wallpapered stairs; it can get difficult to pick one design pattern since there are so many beautiful options, with wallpapered stairs you can conveniently change the wallpaper as and when you like.

Moroccan Stair runners

If you are thinking of getting carpeted stairs, stair runners are probably the easiest way to change the look of a flight of stairs. Sisal runners speak of traditional Moroccan décor while bringing in warmth and comfort to the home space. Moroccan carpet runners are not only trending but are also made of wood or sisal fibres that are very durable.  Match your carpet runners by picking one from the same color family as that of your wall paint.
