3 Hot Trends in Staircase Design

Few components of a home have the architectural impact as the staircase. Given its substantial size and prominent position in the space, the staircase often sets the design tone for the home’s interior. So let’s discuss three current trends in staircase design.

Geometric balusters

Homeowners are increasingly rejecting the traditional vertical balusters in favour of more stylistic designs. As highlighted in this post Stunning Stair Railings, geometric styles are gaining popularity, such as horizontal, diagonal and even more intricate shapes. Are you considering adding some spice to your staircase with non-traditional balusters? The design experts at The Finishing Store have the products and service to help.

Reclaimed wood tread

Whether its weddings, office spaces or baby nurseries, reclaimed wood has become a very popular design element. And staircases are no exception! Reclaimed wood is the perfect material for staircase treads, offering not only beauty but also the durability homeowners desire for their stairs. The experts at The Finishing Store are available to set up an in-home consultation to view all the tread material products available.

Decorative under-stair storage

While it’s nothing new to use the space under the stairs for storage, the latest trend takes this functionality and adds beauty. Whether the space is used for asymmetrical shelving, a reading nook, bookcase or deluxe dog bed, the sky is the limit for utilizing what was once an awkward area to be hidden. The Finishing Store offers its own mill and millwork shop. If you and your designer can dream it, The Finishing Store can help bring that vision to life.
