Hardwood is an excellent material choice for your staircase project

When it comes to choosing the best flooring options to use for your stairs, you need to keep in mind that they are a high traffic area, so the materials must be able to endure the volume expected. Whether you’re constructing a residential or a commercial staircase, the same amount of planning is required when choosing the materials. Some of the most durable materials available are tile, carpet, wood, and glass.

One of the most popular kinds of flooring for staircases is hardwood. Hardwood stairs have an elegant appeal, although there is also something comforting about a carpeted staircase. The great thing about this is that you can choose to combine them and get the best out of both worlds.

When it comes to hardwood stairs, you need to apply the same safety measures that you would use with glass or tile, as wood can become slippery when it is wet. Adding a carpet runner can improve the safety of hardwood stairs while creating a beautiful setting.

Hardwood durability is one of its greatest advantages

Hardwood is a very durable material, so you can rest knowing that it will withstand the use received in high traffic areas. There are many other materials you can use in building a staircase, but work with an expert builder to make sure you are picking the flooring that will make the most sense for your space and purpose you have envisioned.

Choosing the color is also important

White oak tends to be neutral, red oak has a naturally pinkish shade, and there are also some other types of wood that have a more natural tone. Whichever you pick, you can go wrong. Hardwood staircases will forever remain elegant and glamorous, and will always add beauty to your home.
