If your staircase is completely outdated or damaged beyond repair, it may be time to replace your entire stairway. If you’re staircase is in promising condition and just in need of a little attention, here are a few ways you can make a big impact without replacing your entire staircase.
Replace hardware and brackets. This simple change will not only mean replacing outdated materials, but reinforcing the safety and security of your staircase.
New treads will instantly give your staircase a face-lift. Treads show the most wear and tear, as they are the part of the stair that you walk on. Replacing your treads not only contributes in terms of the appearance of your staircase, but will add strength and sturdiness.
Handrails are an important feature, adding much needed safety, especially for children and the elderly. A loose handrail, or no handrail at all, means a higher risk for a nasty stumble. Avoid accidents and take the opportunity to add style with new handrails.
Make a statement with newel posts. Whether you prefer box newels or turned, newel posts are an excellent way to enhance your staircase and make a big impact.
Completely transform your staircase by replacing outdated balusters. For a more traditional look, wood is a classic and timeless choice. If you prefer more modern décor, you might like the look of wrought iron. Both options offer simpler selections as well as more ornate and detailed collections.
