Staircases made of wood are most often used for the second floor in low-rise or wooden houses and cottages. As designers say, a staircase is not only the way of movement, but also the most important decoration in the house. After all, it is difficult to hide this bulky structure. More often it is in sight, catching an eye and setting the tone for the entire residential space.
The main advantages of wooden staircases include:
- ecological compatibility;
- affordable price;
- practicality, especially if the staircase is made of hardwood;
- no need for special care;
- an opportunity to embody almost any designer fantasy.
If you want to buy a wooden staircase, it is better to plan in advance who and how much will walk on it, what additional functions the future staircase will be assigneded to and in what conditions of air and humidity it will be operated. This determines the choice of material for the staircase and its design.
Staircases made of pine and spruce are less durable than those made of precious wood. However, the price for wooden staircases made of oak is much higher. Larch has the same properties as oak, but it is demanding of the microclimate. Wood has many nuances; so it is important to understand well at the outset what the wooden staircase is for and what is required from it.
