Staircase Remodeling: What To Consider When Remodeling Your Staircase

At The Great Lakes Stair & Millwork Co., we often hear from customers who are interested in remodeling their existing staircase in their home or commercial building. A staircase remodel is often thought of synonymously with a staircase renovation, however there are important distinctions for customers to keep in mind.

A staircase remodel should be thought of as a moderate change of basic components to give a staircase new life and a fresh look. A remodel is more cosmetic….think of it as a staircase makeover to improve the overall aesthetic appeal as well as bring the staircase up to today’s standards and codes. For example, we would consider the following items in a staircase remodel:

  • Convert wood spindles to metal (or vice versa)
  • Update stain or paint colors of spindles, banisters, and rails
  • Changing spindles, hand railing, or newel posts with more decorative or up to date options
  • Replacing staircase carpeting with the addition of a decorative stair carpet runner.

These types of cosmetic changes can be useful when preparing to stage a home for selling. We can update the staircase to today’s design trends as well as ensure all codes and standards are in place for the sale of a home. The staircase is a gathering area when entertaining and is often used for family or group photos. The staircase is one of the first things you see when you enter a home or business and will make a lasting impression with the people who come to visit you.

Staircase remodeling is meant to be a moderate update, and as minimally invasive a procedure as possible
