One of the most overlooked parts of a home that can increase the value of your property is the balustrade of your staircase. That’s right. That little section of your staircase can make all the difference to the value of your property. You might be wondering why this small part can have such an impact. Well, in this blog post, we explain how your balustrade is making such a difference!
What Is The Balustrade?
Firstly, before anything else: what is the balustrade? It consists of four sections: the handrail (the top part of the balustrade), the baserail (the bottom bar), the spindles (the pillars in between the handrail and baserail) and the newell post (the large components that connect throughout the staircase).
These four sections make up the balustrade. Ensuring that each section works well together will go a long way to determining the quality of your balustrade, your staircase, and your home.
How Does It Make Your Home Better?
Now we get to the good stuff: how balustrade makes your home better. There are a few reasons on why this is the case:
It gives your home a very classic look, and this does wonders regarding value. A classic look always gives another layer to your home.
Depending on the material you use, you will give your home a very “expensive” look. Timber, glass and metal balustrades will make all the difference to the value of your property.
The design of your balustrade has a bigger impact. Always make sure it works well with the rest of your home, and it flows. This will help you create a consistent atmosphere at home.
You can’t have a staircase without it! We know this is a pretty standard point to end on but remember that if you are looking to design or redesign your staircase, balustrades are part of the process – so make it the best it can be!
