Have you ever wondered what the focal point of your home is? Have you designed it as such that people are wowed when they enter a specific room such as the kitchen? Interior design and home remodels can help you to design a home that truly fits your needs and gives you a living space that is bespoke and made just for you.
Have you factored in the staircase using your plans? More than simply a way of getting from one floor to another, a correctly designed and well-positioned staircase can add value and impact to really give your home something extra.
Adding Value to Your Home with a Staircase Renovation
If your plans are coming along well yet something doesn’t quite feel right, chances are you need to take a step back and look at what it is you are missing. Often it is a case of the simple staircase being overlooked. And this is where you can make so much difference to your home. In terms of the look and feel and also the value.
The value of your home can be considerably increased when taking on renovation works. Those who focus on the staircases or staircases on their home will often find any work carried out in this department will enhance and current plans and really pull the home together.
There are many different ways you can transform your staircase. Those working on a budget may opt for an easy DIY job and look to update an existing staircase. New flooring, restoring existing woodwork and a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference to the finished result of many home decor plans. Other less costly works include replacing staircase parts with newer more modern options or a new design that complements the home and is easier to carry out than a full staircase replacement.
Creating a Focal Point
Using your staircase to add wow and create a standalone focal point will help you to enhance your home and ensure no stone is left unturned when it comes to your renovation work. It is suggested that stairs are placed so as not to make the user enter a room to move to another level of the house. However, if you have a more open-plan look which is becoming more and more popular in the UK, you can choose to completely shift the staircase to another part of your home to allow the layout to flow better and add that instant focal point to your home.
Straying from the tried and tested wooden staircase to allow the space to utilise different materials will give you a better chance of creating an impactful staircase that not only looks good but also creates a functional yet stylish part of your house.
Pay attention to those finishing details on your staircase to really get the look you are going for. From using glass parts instead of spindles to choosing a floating staircase design in wood and metal to complete the look.
