Though it may not be a commonly decorated area of the home, the staircase is actually the perfect place to add some Christmas cheer. Utilize its height, handrail and spindles to adorn garlands, beads, lights and even stockings. No matter how you dress it up, it's sure to carry the festive spirit throughout your home.

Easy holiday decorating ideas for your staircase

Fully dressed

"What a great place to display the stockings! The boxwood garlands were fastened with wool-wrapped wire for a more natural look, and the paper cones were filled with sprigs of leftover boxwood. Opening the stockings is a favourite tradition for these homeowners, so it’s only appropriate that they’re placed centre stage." Click here to tour this holiday home.

Simply festive

"Snow-white velvet stockings, each identified by an initial ornament, are tied to a fresh boxwood garland. Opt for faux garland that has wire inside of it so you can easily twist it around a banister." Click here to tour this holiday home.

Bejewelled

"Make a statement on your staircase – especially if it’s in the entryway. Here’s an easy way to do so that looks glitzy and expensive but costs very little in terms of time and money: Suspend a multi-stringed beaded garland along your banister using white ribbon. Wire together trios of ornaments and attach them to the ribbon. Tuck in gilded leaves for extra flourish and – voila! You’re the queen of Christmas crafts." Click here to tour this holiday home.

Gorgeous garlands

"'Rather than hang the garlands on the banister, which would have hidden the pretty spindles, we draped them on the otherwise plain wall below,' says designer Erin Feasby of Feasby & Bleeks Design." Click here to tour this holiday home.

Earthy flourishes

"Homeowner and designer Nicola Marc with her son, Luka. After gutting the entire main floor and much of the upstairs, Nicola added decorative flourishes that pay tribute to the British homes she grew up in and reflect her penchant for mixing classic and contemporary styles."

By the banister with care

"There’s no reason the Christmas stockings have to be banished to the fireplace – Santa will still find them on the banister, too. Michelle made these ones and hand-stitched white leaves around their tops for a delicate designer’s touch that echoes the poinsettias placed elsewhere in the house."

Industrial-style

"'I like industrial-style things that age organically,' says Jean, who is accustomed to inhabiting urban lofts. The reclaimed brick flooring and the steel staircase, with its open risers, are reminiscent of old warehouses." Click here to tour this holiday home.
