Klaus and I stayed up late recently and took off all the panelling on our stairs. The results were both good and bad.
The staircase itself is a nice design, quite slim and elegant and once given a bit of tlc should look great. We’re thinking of having the spindles white and the hand rail plain wood.
However many of the spindles are missing, probably a third so we will either need to see if the design is already available to buy or get them copied.
Plus the ends have been chopped off presumably so they fitted into the paneling more easily.
And the final blow is that the ends of each step has also be knocked off on every single one and so they will all need to replaced too. Again it’s probably not that tricky just a shame.
