If you are looking for custom spiral stair cases for your home, consider the following when opting for a wood finish.
Easy to clean
Yes, you may need to use some cleaning product designed specifically for the job, but ultimately, these are easy to clean and maintain. Spillages can be easily wiped up and you don’t need to consider a broken glass of red wine a disaster. No one will ever know.
Can be cheaper than carpets
Though they cost a lot to install, hardwood flooring only needs to be installed once, and can be cheaper than some high-end carpets, which would need to be replaced in a couple of years anyway. Buyers also pay more for homes with hardwood flooring.
Lots of styles
Floorboards are lovely, but so is parquet flooring. There is a lot to choose from, so look at different types of woods, their grains and their colours before your settle on one.
Despite all the benefits they can be quite problematic if you are in a flat with noise-sensitive neighbours below. They offer little to no soundproofing. Consider whether you could minimise this with rugs, or a runner, or whether this is a deal breaker for you.
As well as not insulating against noise, these floors also fail to insulate against cold. Without a solid layer between you and the elements, wooden floors can be quite cold. Even if they don’t affect the actual temperature of your home, they can feel cold underfoot in the winter.
