We painted our orangy colored wood white and I’m thinking we should change th color of th bannister. All the trim in house is white and the interior doors will be matte black. I think the bannister should be a different color.

    Picking up the black color would be nice. If you don't like it, it's easily repainted..

    I would keep the banister white to match the rest of the new trim color.

    Try before you commit. Paint lots of tubes in different colours. Slit them down and spring them around the spindles . Enjoy the effect or choose just one colour. Or choose a Rich wood colour or Teal or Burgendy etc

    Just went for it yesterday. I used a chalk black. This is Just one coat and I love it! The white was too harsh in the foyer with south exposure.

    I love the espresso color idea. And for the banister up top, I can see some warm blankets hanging over them.

    Love the open space. I like the black also. Black doors are in right now so you have done a nice match there. Have you thought about doing an accent wall on the lower level since everything is so white?

    I like Holly's idea the best. Stain them dark rather than paint them, because once you paint them you'll never be able to go back to stain.

    Hi, There are choices, All White, All Black - A combination of both (Either uprights Black or White and Spindles the other colour). or leave as is as it matches the Fire Surround., or go for Silver or Gold or Both?
