Not only can a well made and durable set of spiral stairs add beauty and style to your home, it also adds exceptional value. Here’s how:
This type of home design opens up your home by taking up to 70 percent less space than traditional stairs –and yes, that is correct. This option is perfect for homes that are limited in space or are narrow in design. It’s a great way to “fake” space.
Your stairway should be well made with quality materials. For instance, a high quality, professionally made wooden spiral staircase is more valuable than one made from a cheap do it yourself kit. When choosing your final product, you want to choose something that will stand the test of time as opposed to a 10 year warranty. This is also a key factor for resale value if you would choose to sell it in the future. Whether you purchase a well made pre-assembled stairway or hire an experienced carpenter, a well made set of spiral stairs isn’t hard to come by. Just make sure that the proper research is taken before making any decision.
Also, it is vital that before the stairway is installed that the proper measurements for the opening at the top of the stairwell be taken. This is determined by the manufacturer of the stairwell. Consider if you are installing this yourself as a do it yourself project. If you make the opening to big, you risk taking away value from the home. That is why it is important to make the proper measurements or have it professionally installed.
An exterior wooden spiral staircase is a perfect complement to any deck. Not only does your deck add value to your home but by having this unique stair alternative adds immediate style as well as neighborhood envy. You can customize your stairs to your deck by size and finish. You can also add this exterior feature as a unique, alternative exit from any room in your house. Plus, with this type of addition, you can always be a step ahead of the competition in the home market. Ultimately, how many people do you know who have spiral stairs?
So basically, whether you are installing interior or exterior spiral stairs, it is important to research your options that are best for you and ultimately the value of your home. You want to choose high quality materials to build your staircase, whether it is pre-assembled or installed professionally. Do it yourself kits can be used, but you’re not sure if the parts are made from high quality products or low durability products like veneer. You want something that will hold up for years to come, something with staying power.
Spiral stairs add not only value to your home, but extra space. Remember, this design only takes up 70 percent less space compared to a traditional set of stairs. Just think what you could do with all that extra space.
