Stairs material

People are often walking barefoot at home, so it is best to use wood for the treads. Wood or polymer coating is warmer. If you are walking on a metallic or granite stair step it can be cold. The wood is also versatile: it is a pleasure to walk on it both in winter and summer. The wood can be used of any type, but more often is chosen harder wood. It is very important to find which home details to adjust the stairs. Sometimes it is doors, window sills or other internal wooden fittings, floor coverings. If the interior is created only from plastics – then you can use polymer coating for the stairs.

Form and size of stairs

The form of stairs is generally aligned with the architect making a project. It almost does not change. The proposed forms of choice are very wide. There is no much difference between what options you choose: U, or L, or spiral shape, or even different. Then begins the search for the aesthetics of the stairs. You can have any perfect staircase, but a C-shaped staircase by a specialist is the most beautiful. They look nice both from the above and from the below. It would be an almost horseshoe-shaped staircase. Advanced stairs, as C-shaped, will be more expensive. If you invest in luxury stairs – it’s really no need to hide them, better to show them. It all depends on people’s needs.

Stairs – treads size and height

It is very important to maintain a good ratio of tread’s height and width. The most used is  25 cm tread’s size. Too much to reduce the size is not possible.

Good lighting

Stairs have a clear function – allows us to climb up and climb down. While it can sometimes be risky and unsafe, even if the stairs are comfortable and well-lit. What if not? In open staircases are not only more space for larger luminaries, but also imagination. The height allows hanging a massive decorative light. If the staircase with windows, in the dark time of the day it will be seen not only from within but also from outside, the stairwell lights not only decorate the interior but also outside of the house. According to the interior selected light, warm light, visible interior colors will be a part of the home facade decor.
