Often when we think of staircases we visualize the traditional straight stairway, but there are so many beautiful stairways to imagine. Try, for example, a bending staircase with its unique appeal and stylish architectural curves and bends. Among the staircases categorized as bending stairways, you will find some of the most elegant, spectacular, one-of-a-kind structures you have ever seen.

The most important part in establishing the look and feel of your bending staircase is the bending handrail. Bending handrails are spliced with a moulder in order to create the beautiful bend. There may be a slight price increase for the bending handrail, but the grace and stateliness you are adding to your home is well worth it.

With a bending staircase, you will also need to specially select your treads. Depending on if your stairway will incorporate a wall or not, you may need to cut your treads to fit snugly in place against the wall. You will also need to decide if you want your treads to have a return. Choosing to use a returned tread will keep the exposed side of your staircase from looking barren and unfinished. To decide which side of your staircase needs to be returned, stand at the bottom and determine which side will be exposed. If both sides are exposed, you can choose to order treads with a return on both ends.

Choosing your balusters should be a little easier as they are purely chosen to match your design taste. Iron balusters are a fantastic compliment to bended staircases as they add further intricate bends and curves. Wooden balusters are a beautiful option as well, especially if you prefer a more traditional look and feel.
