Remodeling Stairs: Ideas to Remodel Your Staircase

The focal point of the home, a staircase can truly stun anyone visiting your house. At Great Lakes Stair & Millwork, we know that not everyone has the luxury of building a home to their exact specifications, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t add unique, custom elements. We have worked with clients across the country to build custom staircases, but we also work with clients who have an existing staircase that they would like to remodel.

When remodeling stairs, it is important to choose a design that is both suited to your tastes as well as suited to the structure and design of the house itself. Working with a qualified stair company will ensure that both your needs and the needs of the home are being met while you go through a staircase remodel.

When you begin your staircase remodeling project, you will want to select the type of staircase that best suits your home. Depending on your style and the space for the staircase, you can choose from spiral stairs, straight stairs, curved stairs or maybe even a grand staircase! Next, you will want to ensure that you are choosing the proper materials and flooring for your staircase, and that all of the design elements are up to housing codes for your area.

While some people who chose to remodel a staircase are looking to build an entirely new set of stair, you can also remodel your stairs in a more simple way. Consider updating your hand rails or creating a more unique balustrade design by adding new materials, such as rod iron, to your staircase. In the photos below you will see an example of a simple staircase renovation that our stair builders completed by adding a new hand rail and updating the balustrades in the upper level of this home.                 

No matter how big or small your stair renovation project, we are confident that our stair builders will be able to create a beautiful work of art for your home. Contact us today to discuss your project; we’d love to work with you to create a new set of stairs or update the current staircase in your home.
