Spiral Staircase Design

When designing a spiral staircase, it’s important to consider the following:

Will the staircase be outside or inside?

The location of the spiral staircase can have an overall effect on selecting the best material. For example, metal staircases and wood staircases react differently in an ever-changing climate or temperature.

Traditional, contemporary, or a modern spiral staircase?

There are many designs you can choose from, but the type of spiral staircase design should reflect the overall home or building space design as well.

How much space do you have to work with?

The great thing about spiral staircases is that they are already known as space-savers! The width of the step, as well as the height between each step can be fully customized to your taste, preference, and space.

Simplicity or complexity?

Spiral staircase designs can be simple or complex in nature. Every aspect of a spiral staircase can be custom-designed to you. If you’re unsure of what type of look you’re going for, call us!
