At their core, stairs serve the very practical purpose of conveyance: bridging floors and elevations. They also make a huge architectural impression on a home’s interior and should accurately reflect the style and stature of a residence. No matter their individual aesthetics, they also need to be safe, comfortable and extremely well built to withstand the daily barrage of bouncing feet and pulling hands.
Given that safety, comfort and quality workmanship is automatic, most of the decision making for a stair remodel comes down to the aesthetic details, and there are many, many decisions to be made. With quality stair design the final result is the sum of it’s many parts, each bringing subtle cues to create a beautiful and architecturally relevant feature for your home.
