Wall and Stairs Remodeling Ideas
Pairing a Compact Staircase with a New Wall Design
By reducing the run of a staircase through either adding a landing or replacing it with a spiral stairway, the overall floor area it takes up is drastically reduced. When paired with a new wall design that has involved knocking down a nearby wall, the result is a revitalized, open space that projects sophistication and luxury.
Upgrading an Existing Staircase with New Railings and Details
Elaborate balustrades, fillets, and finials can make an otherwise dull stairwell design look like an architectural gem from the past. Why not add the extra stairwell design touches that can make an ordinary home interior appear like its railing was completed by an Old World craftsman?
Adding a Bullnose and Volutes
When it comes to a full stair remodeling, why not include features, such as a bullnose and volutes, that can make even a modern home look like it was built in the 1920s? The extra space at the foot of the stairs provided by a bullnose starting step even provides a casual place for guests and children to sit and relax during crowded parties.
While wood is always a beautiful stair remodeling material, various types of metal railing materials, including wrought iron, are available.
Applying Retro Moldings/Trim
Stairwell design often involves keeping the actual supporting structures exposed, however moldings and other types of artistic trim can be applied for a more elaborate appearance.
Adding a Dramatic Balcony
The upper floor of an open concept stairwell design can also serve as a functional balcony. Perhaps taking down a wall on a home’s second floor to create this effect is what’s needed for your home?
Open Concept Wall Design
Knocking down a wall can do more than just provide space for a new stairwell… It can also make the interior of a home look more welcoming and grand. Conversely, putting up a wall can create new, practical work and entertainment niches.
Adding a New Stairwell
Not every aspect of stairwell design has to be about a major change to a home’s appearance. A staircase remodel can actually add a second or third set of stairs to a home simply to improve privacy or accessibility.
