Choosing the Right Staircase for Your Home

Stairs are a fundamental part of a home, and can be designed specifically for your intended specifications and any needs you may have. There is a wide range of stair case designs to choose from and you are guaranteed to find one that suits your tastes and which will enhance your home.

Planning the perfect staircase

Staircases have proven to be a grand design feature in any home, and can make a real statement on your guests. Whether you want a traditional wooden stair case, a modern stainless steel and glass balustrade or a more contemporary design, you can personalise your staircase so it’s unique to your home. Therefore choosing your staircase is imperative.

Before you decide on a staircase, it’s a good idea to research into different options. Raising these questions before purchasing is vital; what kind of stair case can my house accommodate; will this affect my design ideas? What kind of materials do I want to use? How durable do my stairs need to be? What is my budget?

When selecting your staircase you need to consider its purposes. For example if you have children you might want to opt for a hard wearing and more durable staircase, look into natural wooden stairs or robust carpet options and more classic designs. If your house is home to modern interior and cutting edge design, you can still choose natural materials while also making a statement. Incorporate glass into your stainless steel banister design to maximise light and create your own unique form of contemporary elegance.

For a heritage and rustic approach, solid oak is your answer. This option really makes a statement and looks beautiful in any country home or even traditional townhouse. The choice is entirely yours, make bold statements through unusual spindles and banisters and create a beautiful walk way into your different areas of your home.
