You've decided to renovate. Great! When you look into redesigning your home, it's important to give proper consideration to its centrepiece - the staircase. For many homes, the staircase is the first thing you notice when you walk through the front door. Because of this, it's worth while making sure it is something you are proud of - so take your time to decide on the perfect look for your staircase and make the very best first impression possible.
When you begin planning your new staircase, you'll face a lot of choices that will have inter-linking repercussions on the overall look and feel of your entire home - so it's important to get things right first time. One of your earlier choices will be to decide what material to use for your staircase. Stone? Concrete? Steel? With materials like those you'll quickly find that costs pile up. Not only this, these are cold sterile materials that lack the natural beauty and warmth of wood.
