The other benefit that will almost always outweigh the cost is the durability of the wooden staircases. These staircases will last as long as the home, usually with limited maintenance. As with most things the quality and durability will usually make the extra cost nominal.
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.
However as home restoration and redesign has picked up as a hobby and a way to make a living, there has been a return to the love of hardwood flooring and staircases. Many a home designer has pulled back old worn out carpet to find beautiful wood floors. These discoveries have begun a trend to have the decorative hardwood staircases restored instead of again being covered with carpet.
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.
While traditional staircases are usually located in areas where one side of it is on a wall and its pretty easy to hang art or framed pictures on that wall, staircases arent always configured that way. Spiral staircases usually hang from the ceiling, sometimes even at the center of the room.
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.
