Why stairs and handrails are a bigger deal than you think

If you are embarking on a home renovation, you might not give much thought to the idea of new stairs & handrails. However, if you happen to get the wrong ones, or you aren’t pleased with some aspect of what you wind up with, it can be an expensive oversight. The fact is, while these are some very functional aspects of any home that has stairs, it’s also an important element of style. They can blend in and become an amazing asset to your décor, or they can clash and create an eyesore.

Stairs & handrails that really work

A common mistake that is often made when it comes to stairs & handrails, is leaving the handrail off the wall. While it isn’t completely necessary, it’s true, it does add an extra measure of security that can really come in handy. This is especially the case if one person happens to be ascending the stairs, while another is descending.

However, poorly installed handrails can create more problems than they solve, especially if installed too high or too low. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional who knows all the stair-railing codes for residential stairs & handrails. Much like the codes for electrical and plumbing work, these are put in place for safety. Attempting a DIY installation, especially if you don’t know the codes, can be a risky venture.

The stairs themselves can often be overlooked as well, as many homeowners simply don’t give much thought to them. In reality, you have a great many options to choose from, and many products that can suit your tastes and décor. For instance, some people simply choose wooden stairs, while others choose to have them carpeted. If safety is a great concern, there is also the availability of stair tread, which leads to less slipping.
