The beauty of a home lies not in the size or the brand of its furnishings. But rather on the small details that make up the whole look. It is in these small details that the homeowner’s personal style is expressed and seen. This is why it is important that every little detail of a home’s interiors and exterior are well thought of and carefully planned. Even a slight change in a seemingly minute detail can change the over-all look and feel. One of the most important aspects to a home’s style is the stair design. The stair design can make or break a home’s look. This is why choosing your stair’s design will be one of the most important decisions you will have to make about your home.
Choosing the perfect stair design is not a task that is worth underestimating. At first glance, it may seem as a very effortless feat, but with all the styles and designs available in the market now, one is bound to get confused along the way. The perfect design should be based on a number of factors that will help you discern what to choose among the many choices available.
The most important factor to consider when choosing the right design would be safety. Safety is always the top priority when it comes to building beautiful staircases. You should be able to come up with a design to suit your needs. For example, if there are children in the house, a good choice would be to use wood stair parts in your design. A wood staircase is the more child-friendly choice since the material used is non-abrasive and will not rust. A wooden stair is a classic choice made by most homeowners. Another factor that should be regarded is the home’s general theme.
As a general rule of thumb, most prefer their stairs to blend in with the home’s over-all look. It should fit nicely into the existing furnishings and theme of the space where the stairs will be built upon. A good way to see if your design will fit nicely is by observing the space. Look for dominant colors, lines, curves, and small intricate details. Most probably, these small details when incorporated into your stair design will give the feeling of coherence.
For example, if your home is abound with French lines and curves, incorporating the same lines and curves to your stair railing perhaps, will help it blend in as part of the home’s theme. There are times when a staircase can become a focal point of the room. This is especially true for those who have a taste for the eccentric or the lavish. In homes with large halls and high ceilings, it is common to find curved stairs perfectly placed in a location that makes it the center of attraction. Most of these curved stairs are made of hardwood stair parts which exude the unmistakable air of elegance into the space.
The stair design that you choose should above all reflect your personal sense of style. Having your own personal space reflect your choices and preferences will make it a place worth coming home to.
