As a great architectural feature, the stairs have a significant impact on the style of the house. Remodeling them is a way to bring a whole new atmosphere and feel in the space. You may also find yourself in the position of having to repair a staircase that has been damaged or has just worn out due to age. There are many different stair pieces that can be combined in different ways to create a style that will enhance any home.
There are several elements on the stairs. The tread is the part of the stair that is trampled. The riser is the vertical front of each step, which is absent on some stairs, called "open-rise". The side members are the side panels. The balustrade includes the balustrade (or banister), the balusters that support it and, often, the new ones, which are larger vertical support posts at the beginning, end and towers.
In a particular staircase, some of these elements can not be changed; for example, if the stairs lead to a wall on one side. Take this into consideration when creating your design concept. The new staircase must be designed as a whole so that it is consistent.
If you are struck by a certain element when shopping, for example a particular style of railing, make sure that the rest of the design integrates well with this element. This should be easy to do because a wide selection of beautiful standard stair components is available. If you have something special in mind and you can not find it, you can have custom parts made for you. Iron and wood parts can be custom made to your specifications.
The latest trend is for wooden stairs with iron balusters and wooden handrails and newels. This is a very elegant look and can be used to complete just about any decorating scheme. Oak stairs are the most common, due to the longevity of hardwood. It can be stained anywhere from light to dark, or painted in any color. Open staircases are popular for a contemporary or organic look. Open stairs tend to be more expensive, so it may not be the best choice if you are on a strict budget.
The choice between coloring or painting is another decision you will want to make. Think about how you want the stairs to reflect or influence the style of the room. The hue tends to look warm and rich, while the paint is lighter and more airy.
Dark colors with light accents are more formal, and the color paint is more casual. Light colors open the space. There are many options that you can choose to produce just the right feel for your home. Design consultants can help you find what to do if you have trouble deciding.
