Turn Your Staircase Into a Work of Art With Denver Custom Woodworking


June 20, 2018

You may not pay attention to the staircases in most homes. They probably function just fine, but there is nothing all that special about them. But with Denver custom woodworking at TGB Flooring, your stairs can literally become a work of art because they will make a one-of-a-kind statement. We can take your boring, run-of-the-mill staircase and ensure it makes a statement. We can create curved, spiral, straight, and flared designs for your staircase.
Take a look at our project gallery to see some of our beautiful hardwood work, including custom staircases.
If you have hardwoods in your home, you might wish to consider incorporating the warm look of hardwoods into your custom staircase. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your project:

Color

You’ll probably want to use the same color as your floors for your hardwood stairs—unless you are trying to create a particularly unique statement. But if you want things to flow, it is usually best to stick to the same color.

Finish

If you order wood for your staircase that is already finished, you run the risk of having it damaged during the construction process. Putting in stairs is hard work, so nicks and dings are likely to happen as part of the process. It’s usually best to have the wood for the stairs finished on-site.
Don’t miss these pro tips on taking care of your custom wood staircase so it looks beautiful for years to come.

Risers

The riser is the vertical space between steps, and although you can’t see them much while you are on the stairs, when you are viewing the stairs from a distance, they are quite visible. With Denver custom woodworking, you have plenty of options for the risers. You can make them match the stairs, or you can create a contrasting look. Or they can be painted for a more traditional design.

Plank Size

You can choose wide or narrow planks, depending on your personal preference. You might also want to consider what plank size your home’s hardwood flooring has and have the stairs match.

Wood Grain

You’ll want to make sure the wood grain of your stairs matches that of your hardwood floors to create a more integrated look. Otherwise, your custom staircase might end up looking out of place in your home.
