The staircase may not be the main decorative attraction of a home, but it can have a more profound effect on a house’s decor than homeowners may realize. Stairs obviously serve a primary function—providing access from one house level to another—but they can also serve as a design focal point.
A well-crafted staircase can be the ideal backdrop for a home, and our stair services at GID Flooring can help bring out the beauty of your house’s staircase. There are many reasons why homeowners should consider remodeling their home’s stairs, from the safety of the home to the wow factor.
How GID Flooring Can Improve Your Home’s Stairs
Make Them Safer
First, there’s the safety aspect of stair remodeling. In Raleigh, many beautiful, historic houses with old-fashioned staircases look gorgeous but are considered unsafe and not up to code by today’s standards.
It’s common, especially for old wooden staircases, for the steps to get worn down after years of use and become a slippery safety hazard. Some houses are so old that they don’t even have a safety handrail—even though it’s required for home inspections in North Carolina.
Instead of holding your breath every time you go up or down your stairs, let our stair contractors do their work to bring it up to the code and safe for everyone.
Make a Design Statement
For some homeowners, the staircase is an afterthought, but if you ask us, that’s a missed opportunity to add a design wow factor to your home’s interior design. While the staircase in your home may be basic and boring now, we can help bring it to new life with custom stair railings or new stair carpet installation.
A new hand railing can make all the difference in elevating a home’s decor, and our expert contracting team with over 15 years of experience can craft the railing and staircase in whatever style you’d like—whether your home has a historic flair or is all about modern design.
