Choosing the Perfect Staircase

A staircase is important to any multi-level home, allowing residents to move from one floor to another. Wood staircase can be a grand focal point in your home, or it can be tucked away behind other elements to provide a practical use in a home with limited space.

Check Available Space

How much space you have available for your stairs will affect the design of your staircase. You have the option of choosing a more decorative staircase for your large home, such as an imperial staircase, which starts as a single set of steps, reaches a half-landing and then branches off into two symmetrical flights on either side. This grand design of staircase would be best suited in large houses with plenty of floor space.

A straight staircase is a simple design, but it can take up more space than you might expect. L-shaped and winder stairs are usually the best choice for most homes because they require less space to install and have a curve halfway up that makes them safer to use. A spiral staircase can be a space saver because it can be tucked away in a corner.

Whatever design you like, it’s important to check that it will fit into your available space.

Match to the Interior

Your staircase should fit your home’s style and décor, looking like it is a natural part of the interior design. Whether your home is a modern build or a small rustic cottage, you need to make sure the staircase matches, so it doesn’t look out of place.

Selecting the right colours, materials and styles/shapes for your stairs can help to create a look that’s just right for you. Make sure the staircase in your home complements the wood in your other rooms. The wrong mix of woods can make a room look disorderly and distract from the design aesthetic.
