Foyer Painting Naperville

One of the most challenging rooms for interior painting is the foyer. In reference to decorating trends, what is being shown in the marketplace are:

  • Stringer and risers being painted
  • Gone are the old oak posts and instead, having metal ballisters installed to replace them
  • Treads and handrails are being stained darker colors

When all of the above is installed, painted, and stained, there is greater contrast shown instead of a staircase that is solid oak.

Another way to dress up your foyer is installation of wainscoting.  After installation, you can paint the wainscoting a shade of white and then have the top half of the walls painted in a contrasting color, such as the one shown in the video.  This adds character and really dresses up your foyer.

Don’t forget, if you need an estimate on painting your foyer, give me a call.   My team and I have been serving Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, River West, Near West Side, Printers Row, Dearborn Park, Gold Coast, Lake Shore East, New East Side, Streeterville, Near North, Loop, Old Town, River North, and all of Chicago area for 30+ years.
