A Step Above The Rest

A stunning staircase can capture your heart from the moment you walk through the front door. It can be the grand focal point of any entry and can even be the sculptural art piece that can set the tone of your entire home.

The first decision to make when designing the perfect staircase is to determine what your focal point will be. Some may choose to make the shape curved to create a dramatic effect. You could also keep the design open and airy or choose to close it in and create a window bench on the landing space. Another design feature to highlight could be the railing. Many designers create beautiful artwork with the pattern of the wood or iron bannister. Yet another way to make your stairway command attention is by installing a beautiful carpeted runner in a great pattern or texture. Don’t forget the small details too as they are just as important. The trim moulding and lighting feature above are the finishing touches to make your stairwell the most interesting space in your home.
