Before and after stair change

Replacing your old staircase is not as advanced as you might think, but as you can see in the pictures, which show before-after the change, the transformation can be amazing.

Many of our customers tell us how incredibly satisfied they are with their new staircase. Have a look into the home of some of them and see what it looked like before - and after - the change of stairs.
Notice how not only the stairs change, but the whole environment around. Sometimes with very simple means - a little paint and new wallpaper, for example.

Staircase change with before-after images from our customers has always been one of our most appreciated departments on the site. Have you bought a staircase from the dream stairs and have your own pictures that you want to contribute, please let me know!

1. “Ever since we moved into the house, I have wanted to do something about the old stairs, but I was afraid that a stair change would be a very complex procedure and impossible in our house. After a bit of research I came in contact with the Drömtrappor. They could describe the process – which turned out to be far from as advanced as I thought – and also I could adjust the stairs as I wanted it! ” Here is what interior design and lifestyle blogger Nina Holst (Stylizimo) has to say about how her staircase was changed. She had aldready sanded and treated the floor when we came into the picture and the desire was that the stairs would match her white glazed spruce floors which we matched with a white glazing on pine. The floor plan is the same as before, two stairs on top of each other from the entrance floor to the social areas on the 2nd floor and on to Nina’s work room in the loft. The choice of glass railings is about creating a restful background to the dining area and living room, but also for the light to flow as freely as possible between the three floors. Didnt it turn out was restful and yet expressive?! If you want to see more inspiring pictures from Nina’s home, we recommend a visit to her blog

3. On some of the “before-after” you have to look several times to believe that it is the same space. This is one of those! On the ground floor the floor plan has been opened up with the staircase change. The walls around the staircase have been removed and replaced by an open staircase with underlying stringer which further reinforces the open impression. The upper floor has a much brighter expression with the new staircase, a little white color and a new wallpaper.
