The Staircase - Eye-catcher of the House
When a visitor or occupant enters a house, he gains the first impression of the interior from the staircase. Old staircases in the style of the Wilhelminian style with art nouveau ornaments and stucco are very impressive and aesthetic.

Old staircases with stucco paint
In Wilhelminian style buildings, there are many staircases that still the original design with ceiling or murals, Stucco and ornamental borders show. If everything is well preserved, it should remain as cultural property as it is. Sometimes, however, the old stairwells have to be renovated. Then the owner has the opportunity to work creatively with the existing structures.
A good idea is to include the piece in the planning. When renovating it is possible to delete the staircase so that you can see the Gründerzeit style under a more modern paint. One idea is to paint the stucco in a fresh paint and the walls in another. Color combinations such as green / old rose, old rose / brown or turquoise / gold differ from the covered original finish and still fit well into the piece.
If the original walls and ceilings had embedded paintings or other plastic structures, they can be used. It is now possible to paint in three colors or even more. These can be rich in contrast, but should be perfectly attuned to each other.
If there is still a functioning old staircase in the staircase, it should not be painted. Rather, the staircase provides a point of orientation to which the color choice should be adapted.
