Let’s face it, you probably treat your stairs like many other homeowners in the Kansas City area do. To you, your stairs are simply a way to get to one floor or the other, or are even a nuisance to be cursed when your back pain flairs up. However, your stairs have the potential to be so much more than that.
Your house’s stairs are one of the central points of your home. Whether a grand staircase or a simple set leading to kids’ bedrooms, your stairs deserve to be treated as the main focal point that they are.
Some of the best ways to increase the overall look and value of your stairs include:
Install Decorative Railings
One of the easiest ways to make your stair design stand out is to install decorative railings like those made by Southwest Moulding and Creative Stair Parts. Produced with handcrafted stainless steel, these railings come in countless styles and instantly add personality to both modern and rustic homes.
As one of the most walked-on surfaces of your home, the carpet on your stairs can quickly fade and lose padding. To fix this and improve the look of your space, consider removing the carpet from your stairs and opting to install hardwood. Not only is hardwood more visually pleasing and elegant, but it is also easier to maintain and clean in the long run.
Instead of replacing the entirety of an aged staircase, simply replace the treads of the stairs. By removing old treads and swapping them with new, improved, material, your staircase will increase in quality, and when paired with new accessories like railings or even hardwood, will transform your home.
When you take the time to treat your stairs to new railings, treads, or even hardwood, you will improve both the structure’s value and visual appeal. Stop ignoring your stairs, and instead, help them stand out today.
