Benefits of Curved Stairs

Posted in Stairs

One of the most prominent features in any home is unavoidably the staircase.  They are large, necessary, they take up space and they are usually one of the first elements a viewer sees when entering the home. If staircases are planned properly, they can make a grand statement. Curved stairs are a great way to add style and value to a space.

Style

There are many types of curved staircases that can be used.  Arched staircases are close to traditional sizes of straight stairs but with a slight bend giving interest and using space efficiently.  If space is an issue, a spiral staircase has a very small footprint as they go up, however they are usually much more steep and narrow.

Value

Curved stairs definitely add value to the home.  They are more expensive to install, however they are less common and certainly never cookie-cutter. The materials you choose can also add to the value of your home, whether you choose metal or wood railings.

Design

Curved staircases always add a level of interest and sophistication to the space.  They turn an otherwise simply functional part of a house into an intentional statement that says something about the people who live there. They can be decorated for events to add even more interest.

If you are building a new home, talk to your architect or a professional staircase specialist about how you can add a curved staircase to your home. Choose a design that compliments the style of your home with tread choices and railings that make a statement. You only get one chance to make a first impression.  Make a grand statement with beautiful curved staircases designed especially for your home.
