In cases like this, the best way to decorate or to utilize the space around the stairs to place your things is to clear spaces where you put furniture like your chairs and move them near or around the staircase, facing away. This way, some spaces will be relieved of the bigger furniture and you can use these spaces to put bookshelves or hang art. The chairs, if arranged strategically on one side of the staircase's perimeter, can create an interesting conversation piece and a stunning arrangement.
The danger of this, though, is that some furniture may provide hindrances or obstacles when getting to the spiral staircase. To avoid this, you must place the furniture away from the foot of the staircase. And group the furniture, basically the chairs and perhaps coffee table, like you would normally do.
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.
If you have ever walked into a home with a handmade hardwood staircase you know the impact one can have. Whether it is a spiral staircase in the middle of the entranceway or a typical staircase along a wall, nothing says craftsmanship like hardwood.
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.
