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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
