Staircase Stain Ideas

Please let me know your advice on staining this staircase. The current plan is treads, rail, posts and the design element in jacobean or ebony, the spindles in white and the stringer and riser in an english chestnut stain. Do you think I should go white with the stringer and risers too?

It seems a shame to paint that beautiful wood. Although I do love the stairs on the TV show Revenge. The Greyson Manor staircase in white and black looks amazing.

I feel if I stain the wood it will look too colonial for my taste and design. I love that staircase too and some things need to be kept classic and classic is the black and white staircase in the Greyson Manor. Thanks for your advice.

Where I see that your trim is white, I would, seeing as there's still plenty of wood that you'll stain dark. I also see that your windows aren't over the top traditional, so take a little license and really do what you like here. It's quite grand; I think I might just wear a ball gown most of the time, tiara on my birthday.

I love a stately staircase! I would paint the rails and steps white and do a dark stain on the banister and tops of steps. See the attached photos.

While the wood is gorgeous and would look awesome stained it will look like the stairs in a plantation house, which I understand is not the look you want. I agree with the idea to paint the stairs black and white. It will look classy and stylish! Have fun!!

We painted our bannister black. The step treads are oak with a white riser and spindles white .

I like all one color, tone on tone.The staircase is beautiful , great detail , dont distract from that by making it busy. Less is more. Use a tone of the wall color . Try Benjamin Moore Moonlight white for stairs and walls , ceiling and trim. I promise you will thank me! This color is so pleasing day and night. You'll feel happy in it
