When building a home, decisions must be made as to what materials should be used. Choosing hardwood will always be the correct choice, as it is durable and in the hands of someone with true knowledge of wood working, can be transformed into a wonderful hardwood staircase.
The aesthetic of a staircase made of hardwood also cannot be replaced. Nothing finishes off a beautiful home like a beautiful staircase. The feel of the hardwood under bare feet is priceless. This means that not only is a hardwood staircase the perfect eye-catching addition to a home, but these staircases even improve the feel of the home.
Lastly, one fun thing about having a staircase is that they look good and especially festive when you decorate them for occasions like the Holidays. With delicate taste and powerful restraint, you may even be able to turn it into a non-tacky Christmas Tree-like holiday décor.
Spiral staircases are interesting, but unlike regular staircases, theyre not easy to decorate. Most spiral staircases, especially if theyre in a location thats easily seen, attract enough attention and decorating around them would just make the space seem cumbersome. Although what if the spiral staircase is there because you are trying to save space and you would still want to decorate, or at the very least place some of your stuff around the staircase. What do you do?
There have always been those craftsmen that could create a beautiful hardwood staircase. Many of the most famous homes in the world were designed around these artistic staircases. The ability to turn simple wood into something simply spectacular is an ability that began to die out for a short period of history.
Even the higher end homes began to be made with these carpeted staircases and the need for the craftsmen became less and less. Cost began to win out over craftsmanship, and the savings was passed on to the homeowner.
