Choose the Right Stairs and Staircases for Your New Home

Stairs

If the stairs are not already chosen for you by the builder, you may have the option to make your staircases quite amazing. Custom-built homes often have amazing staircases, which can be wider and more ornate than a normal staircase. Here are a few good choices for your home's staircase.

Natural Staircase

Choosing a natural staircase will give you a very interesting look. High-quality natural materials, such as hardwood or real stone can be very beautiful and very low-maintenance. However, this type of staircase can also be quite expensive.

Plain Staircase

Those not looking to go crazy or spend very much, may prefer a plain staircase. This can be more than just a few steps leading from one floor to another, however. It can include a small landing, a big window or anything else you prefer. However, the cost is kept to a minimum because the stairs are covered with carpet or a laminate.

Fancy Staircase

Of course, those looking to make a statement or add luxury to their home, may consider a grand staircase with fancy elements. You may choose a larger, wider or more ornate staircase with shorter steps. Maybe you prefer a spiral staircase or a double staircase at the entrance of your home. This can be done, but it will be a bit pricey.

Outdoor Staircases

Another decision you may need to make is about the staircases outside. You may have one that takes you to a balcony or down to a swimming pool or outdoor area. This type of staircase should fit with your landscaping and natural materials are always a good choice.

As you decide on the right type of staircase, you will have many decisions to make. Some may center around safety, while others may center around design. Make sure you work with your builder to choose the right type of staircase for the interior and exterior of your home.
