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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
