Your staircase can be a striking focal point of your home while adding value. So, whether you’re remodeling an existing staircase or adding stairs to a new build, Lowe’s can help make them a stylish statement.
From the clean lines, warm wood tones and traditional look of a Craftsman-style staircase to the sleek details and modern appeal of an industrial-style staircase, the design of a staircase sets the tone of your home. If you want more elegant detail, consider a classic staircase with wrought-iron balusters, traditional railings and other features that bring grandeur to your entryway. Spiral stairs create a unique, eye-catching design that works well in small or open floor plans.
Building a Staircase
There are various pieces that go into creating the perfect staircase, and all are important to the function of the stairway as well as the aesthetic. Stair treads and stair risers make the steps that lead the way to the upper floor of your home. Handrails, or banisters, give you something to hold onto while walking up and down the staircase, while a stair railing prevents falling off the side of the staircase. You’ll also need balusters — key players in support for the railing, safety and additional style — and newel posts, the main pillar at the front of the staircase also essential to the support of a flight of stairs.
Most staircases are constructed of wood. Red oak is the most common wood choice and is easy to stain, sand and finish, so you can easily customize the staircase. Other options include white oak, (offers water resistance), pine, Brazilian cherry and maple. Vinyl options for stair treads and risers are also available. If your staircase has a contemporary vibe, consider a modern stair railing crafted with stainless steel cable or glass and metal handrails to complete the look.
Stylish staircases aren’t limited to the inside of your home. Enhance steps leading to your front porch or back deck, too, with an outdoor stair rail and boost your home’s curb appeal.
