There is something special about wooden stairs. Wood feels warm and inviting, offering a fabulous, eco-friendly material for Green building and decorating. Traditional wooden staircase designs are the most challenging stairs projects, but these functional architectural elements add fantastic decorative details to house facades and backyard entryways. Local building codes set the requirements for safety that wood staircase builders have to follow, but homeowners can choose a unique design, materials to complement wooden stairs, and creative accents that beautifully customize modern dwellings. Lushome shows attractive wooden stairs that are elegant, formal and casual, offering great inspirations for accentuating houses and summer cottages.

People got used to unappealingly ordinary staircases, but it is possible to build your wooden stairs in a way that add flair and unique style to your modern houses. While being functional elements of architectural designs, customized staircases give a fantastic chance to create beautiful, warm, and unique homes with personality. High-quality wood and other materials help add chic to staircase designs, increase home values, and accentuate front doors in an elegant, expensive, and beautiful way.

Custom wood stairs show off unique designs and creative details, making stunning focal points of the houses. While blending functionality, safety, durability and universal appeal of the natural material, the stairs can demonstrate unusual, creative and modern design. Staircases are investments, home decorations that last for years and used every day. Although custom staircase designs can be expensive, their gorgeous, warm and welcoming look is worth the money.
