Designing the Craftsman Rustic Staircase

At the moment, one of our most popular style requests is a craftsman rustic staircase design. Known for handiwork, simplicity, and natural materials, the craftsman style movement continues to grow in popularity.

Solid wood construction adds to the cozy, charming appeal of craftsman homes and commercial spaces, especially with hardwood floors. Plus, many people are choosing this look for other parts of their property such as a guest house to create a “cabin feel.” Other people have opted to design a rustic deck railing. No matter what part of your home its for, a craftsman rustic look works with great with exterior and interior design.
