Budgets are a reality more than ever, and we offer lots of options to customize a staircase without going overboard. Just adding twisted newels with regular balusters makes the stair more interesting and personal. Fluting, roping, and octagon facets are options for many of our styles, and these can be combined with standard parts for a really custom look.
Another idea is to make regular turnings a little larger–suddenly the whole stair is bolder and doesn’t look like the one next door. Ask about 2-1/4” balusters instead of 1-3/4”. And don’t forget to consider other handrail styles, as others are available (from us) for the same prices as the standards like 6010 (2-1/4″) or 6210 (2-5/8″). It’s always a good idea to look through books and magazines to get ideas before making any final choices.
