If you think that the only function of a staircase is to get access to the upper story of a building then you couldn’t be more wrong. The right staircase can do a lot for a residential or commercial building. In fact, the general look of your home’s staircase is probably the biggest source of inspiration that sets the tone, trend, and style of your home. This is because staircases take up a whole lot of visual space inside the home. When someone enters a home, their focus is automatically drawn towards the staircase whether the staircase is appealing or not. There is just something curious, exciting and elegant about a staircase and it just captures the eye no matter what.
It makes perfect sense that changing the look or design of your staircase can give your entire home a different look. Here is how a custom staircase can makeover your entire home.
The right staircase can save a lot of space
Is that old and traditional staircase taking up just too much space? Well a new and trendy staircase like spiral staircases and even L shaped staircases can save up a lot of space and improve mobility inside the home.
Home life can become a lot more efficient
Some staircases like spirals and L shapes are just a lot easier to climb. You can move between the upper and lower level of your home a lot quicker and a lot safer with a staircase that is easier to use and access. Low maintenance staircases like timber staircases can also make home life more efficient because less cleaning and upkeep is required, yet the staircase will still be beautiful and stylish.
Set the design trend for your home
Does your home have a modern, classic, contemporary or traditional style? Well if you are not sure then your old-fashioned staircase might be to blame. Traditional straight timber staircases inside a modern contemporary home can throw everything inside the home off balance. The same goes for a contemporary staircase like a wrought iron spiral staircase in a classic and traditional home with hardwood flooring and plenty of bookcases. With the right staircase, you can set the right trend for your home. If you live in a modern and sleek apartment or home then a modernised staircase like those with open stairs and wired or stainless steel balustrades can create a very harmonious look. If you live in a home with natural hardwood flooring, a natural or more traditional colour trend and lots of antique furniture then a closed staircase with beautiful timber failings and plenty of timber pillars will result in a much more fitting and overall calm look and feel.
Your staircase can be your art
A beautiful staircase can replace the need for fine art and home decorations if you invest in the right design. A staircase with decorative elements such as custom designed steel pillars will speak for itself and will be beautiful enough to act as a work of art.
Staircases can complement the interior design
A custom staircase that is designed to meet your requirements and to match your taste also makes it easier to decorate or design your home accordingly. With the right staircase, you already have the right focal area inside the room and you can work on that trend or style and design your entire home accordingly.
A custom staircase inside your home can do wonders for the overall efficiency, functionality and especially for the overall look of your home. It is well worth your effort to make away with that old and traditional staircase that never seemed to belong and to invest in a modern and much more functional customised staircase.
