In modernising a ’70s home (removing archways, brick feature wall and balustrade around entry), I’ve now created a safety issue at my front entry. I’ve had the floors stained very dark as opposed to the orange pine look and the step down into the lounge room is harder to see and without balustrade it becomes invisible. What suggestions are there to fix this problem? I’m thinking wrought iron balustrade in black near door. Any other suggestions?
