Safety in using stairs should be the main concern when planning the stairs. Its form and design should be rooted on safety. Beauty is useless without proper function. Since a stair’s function is to safely take people to different levels in a multi-level home or building, it should be made in a way that will not compromise those who will be using it. A good way to ensure its safety is to start at the beginning of the installation of the stairs itself. A stair’s foundation lies on the quality of the stair parts used. Therefore, investing in good quality stair parts is a must for ever homeowner and stair builder.
Choosing the right parts to incorporate into your stair’s design is a very critical decision to make. Everything should be chosen based on safety, function, and visual appeal. Safety is ensured when there are no sharp edges or abrasive surfaces found in the parts to be used. Function is dictated by how well the parts fit together, with no loose baluster or wobbly stair rails. The visual appeal is how the parts when incorporated into a single design will look. The resulting stairs should be coherent to the space where the stairs are installed. Its impact is seen on how well it blends with the existing furnishings or how it compliments the space’s design elements.
