With bespoke staircases, you must ensure they meet the requirements of the inhabitants of the home. This is one of the most important things our business has come to learn about them. We custom design all commissions and handcraft them at our ultra-modern workshop. To accomplish this, we use a myriad of timbers.
It is possible to create wooden stairs using one variety of timber or several at once. When built properly, they can last a lifetime. However, as time passes, they endure a substantial level of wear and usage. Without the appropriate maintenance and treatment, they can suffer. To stop this from happening, you must choose the right stair parts and finishes.
One such finish you can use is stair paint. The main advantage to this is that you have plenty of choice. You can cover the grain of your wood and add some colour to the stairs. This approach will involve a bit of preparation. However, painting a staircase is typically an easy affair. Just don’t make the mistake of picking any old paint. It has to be one that possesses enough durability to put up with the usage it receives. Ignore wall paints and go for harder floor or stair paints. In addition, make sure the surface won’t be slippery.
This is another practical finishing option. You are right in thinking that they are more famous for use outside. However, they are suitable for augmenting the colour of banisters and stairs as well. Different kinds of wood stain exist. Water and oil are both efficient choices. Saying this, water-based ones are going to dry faster than their oil counterparts. Even though they enhance the wood’s natural colour, stains don’t offer a seal for it. Therefore, we recommend that you introduce a varnish or sealing oil following the wood stain.
