Stairway Placement And Elegant Design

By Greg Vanden Berge

One of the best pieces of furniture in anyone's home is going to be their stairway. Most stairways are centrally located and visible the moment that you open up the front door.
There is a reason for this and most architects don't want to share the secrets with designers or other professionals in the business.

Your stairway is a focal point for anyone entering your home and is usually designed in an elegant manner to make the house look more attractive. This has been an architectural secret for years.

Think about this for a moment, the next time that you walk into a two-story home. Open up the front door take one step inside and look around and tell me if I'm wrong. I have been building stairs for quite some time and I'm the one who has to make this stuff look great and I know why.

Your stairway placement in your new home should always be centrally located and near the front door for two reasons. Easy access and elegance. The reason why your stairway is placed in a central location, is to provide the upstairs users easy access to those parts of the home that are used most often, like the front door, bathrooms or kitchen.

Now the elegant design part of the stairway construction is my favorite part. Stair builders and stairway designers, have been making these works of art for centuries. I myself have seen and built some of the most elegant stairways in my area.

My passion for stairway construction could easily show up in this article, but I wrote it to give home designers and new home builders and idea about stairway placement and the importance of a nice elegant set of stairs.

If you're planning on building a new home, the stairway can provide you with a very appealing piece of furniture for your home. This is one place where you might want to spend a little more money and reap the rewards as you use it on a daily basis.
