In a home that has more than one level, the staircase inevitably becomes an important part of the décor. The staircase is often used as a focal point, as an accent piece and it’s a great way of using a vital part of the home’s architecture and design and turning it into a beautiful décor detail. There are lots of strategies, shapes and designs that can be used for the staircase and they are just as important as the material. Most traditional staircases are made of wood. This gives the elegance they need to stand out but also makes them a pleasant part of the décor because of the wood’s natural ability to add warmth and texture to anything. There are also plenty of modern designs for wooden staircases. A stunning wooden staircase can change the whole look of a home. It can make the difference between a simple décor and a simply beautiful one.
