Not sure what you will need to prepare your stairwells to become StairWELLs? To properly prepare for your stairs to become a safe and inviting place to be, you'll need some basic supplies and equipment for renovation. The following are suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Paint: Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to make a large visual impact in your stairwells. The CDC used brightly colored paint to make the stairwell landing walls cheerful and inviting. The wall on each floor's landing was painted a different color. The stair railings were also painted a color that coordinated with the carpet. The floor numbers (1, 2, 3, 4 or 5) were painted (in the corresponding color) on the stairwell door for each floor.
Carpet: Installing carpet, if not already present, can make a huge difference in the visual appeal and comfort of your stairwell. You might find it is easier to pick a carpet color first, and then coordinate your paint choices to it.
