One thing I find challenging in my house is how low the ceilings are. Even over the stairs it feels closed off and makes me a little claustrophobic.
To help reflect light and make things seem brighter and more open, I've been putting mirrors parallel to the handrail.
There's no natural light at the top of the stairs, so forgive these dark images.
I've been able to find most of the mirrors from thrift stores and on clearance at Hobby Lobby (love the 80-90% clearance sales) and spray paint them. I also got a little creative with some things I already had on hand.
