The best ways to update your staircase

Posted in staircase, staircases, timber stairs with tags , , , on December 26, 2017 by Timber Floors Pty Ltd

Whether you want to change your steps to a smarter style or simply give them a stunning makeover, there can be some ups and downs that you should be aware of.

A stunning staircase is a dramatic focal point in your home, but if it’s ugly, bulky, blocking out light or simply impractical, it’s hard to avoid its dominating effect. However, replacing or upgrading your stairs is probably easier than you might think.

The right location?

For an all over renovation one thing to consider is whether your stairs are well positioned. Yes, moving a staircase will be time-consuming, costly and messy not a light decision and best consulting an expert before you take the first step.

Remove and replace

If your existing staircase is too steep, too narrow, structurally unsound, or simply so terrible it warrants ripping out, consult a specialist staircase company for advice on both practicalities and styles.

Timber is a timeless choice for the structure, but other possible materials include glass, metal, while in terms of design you could go for open treads, a cantilevered style or a staircase that curves elegantly at its base into your hallway.

New staircase? Your need-to-know…

When designing a new staircase, the steps obviously have to be level and even, but you’ll also have to satisfy building Code regulations relating to the overall pitch, landings, handrails, balusters and the measurements of the risers (vertical part of a step) and goings (horizontal part of the step).

Banish boring balusters (and other easy upgrades)

Since the handrail, newel posts and balusters are rarely a vital part of the structure of an old staircase, it’s quite easy to upgrade them. You could take out traditional, turned-wood spindles and fit contemporary glass panels, steel uprights.

You can also reclad treads with solid Australian Hardwood timber treads.

Provided you stick to the regulations, there are no limits on staircase style.

A timber Staircase matching your new timber floor, is like icing on a cake.

Everybody loves timber floors and if you can match your staircase then it goes without saying that the finished look will be simply stunning.
