Its the necessary transition of two levels of space......THE STAIRWAY! The saying of making an entrance in Interior Design is to point to the design and skill of the stairway - it sets the tone of the flow of the space.
How grand it spills from one level to the next!
Today I want to share some Wednesday Wisdom the top spindals for staircases......AND the remainder of the week give you a SHOUT OUT on the designs and creativity into staircases. Staircases are installation art form in your house, requiring much architectural skill to design and equally important trade skill to install - so think of them as a permanent sculpture.
In spindals the range is wide from metals to wood, custom to off the shelf - and there is enough to fit design styles from traditional to modern. But what are the TOP popular spindals in home renovations? A lot of clients will remove the candlestick wooden spindal and replace with one of these metal selections, usually in black iron or pewter. Or if they want to inject character they will used reclaimed spindals, showcasing the patina in paints and aged woods.
The next area of the staircase to look at is the Bannister, focusing here on the end cap to the handrail. Here we see again the candlestick being replaced with square wood pieces - sometimes clad with molding then painted out and other designs that showcase the wood, stained grains. The designs when looking custom are endless.
So today look at your staircase not only differently, but with some Wisdom. Look at how it has been thought out.....a functional art form. Tomorrow the Story of Stairs continues........
