Custom Stair Designs

While indoor staircases are a necessity for homes with multiple levels, the trend is making them an architectural focal point of your new home by creating a custom stair design. For most new homeowners a stairways form is as important as its function. A custom stairway can provide a dramatic focal point, enhance architectural aesthetics, and add pizzazz to interior spaces. That is why designers and architects are incorporating custom stairways into their house plan designs.

An extremely popular trend right now is crafting stairways from exotic wood species, like Brazilian Cherry, rich African Mahogany, wavy-textured Cumaru and dark opulent Bubinga. High-end deeper-hued domestic woods, like Walnut and American Cherry, are also very popular for homeowners who have a true affinity for tradition.

Not only do homeowners want a fresh, new selection of woods from around the world, but also they want their stairway to match their hardwood flooring and woodwork as precisely as possible. Custom matching is a trend that's here to stay, ensuring a seamless appearance throughout the home while reflecting an exquisite attention to detail that savvy homeowners have come to expect when building a new home - particularly a higher end home.

Curved and spiral stairways are also making dramatic entrances in more homes because they add eye-catching elegance while giving your home a very unique interior look. For the seasoned stair builder, tailoring curves is a breeze and well worth the investment.

Another growing trend is mixing and matching high-quality wrought iron balusters of several different, yet complementary designs to create a one-of-a-kind pattern for your stairs design. An experienced stair builder will be happy to help lay out various baluster patterns so you can create a truly custom design.

Design Tip
You can easily give your home a softer look by having a circular staircase built instead of the standard angular design. You can easily bring a more natural look to your home's interior by using a curvy railing system. There are a number of places where you can look to get inspired by many unique and beautiful stairways like magazines, home improvement showrooms and online. When building your new home, be sure your designer and builder know exactly what you want from your stairway. It's a good to pick out the stair parts yourself and show them pictures of how you want your stairway to be designed. After all a picture is worth a thousand words.
