4 benefits of timber staircases

When it comes to building projects, it can be difficult to decide on the best type of staircase for your home. You’ll want a structure that can withstand the test of time whilst still making an eye-catching hallway feature.

Whilst there are a number of design and material options to choose from, understandably, we have a soft spot for a touch of timber. Here are some of the benefits of timber staircases we think you should know.

1. Durability

Although timber is a fairly lightweight material, it’s strong and resilient yet also flexible. As a result, it’s perfect for heavy-duty structures and will make a great choice if you’re looking to add a little flair to the design. Our experts in the Multi-Turn workshop can easily manipulate the wood to create curves or other unique features. And, providing your timber staircase is treated correctly and maintained to protect it from everyday use, it will hardly show signs of wear.

2. Design flexibility

From completely customising your design to every wood grain and shade being unique, you have the opportunity to create a truly bespoke feature that adds a natural and elegant feel to the home. If you’re one for making a statement, a staircase crafted from quality timber will certainly achieve this.

3. Sustainability

At a time where the environment, and deforestation in particular, is a top concern, we’re making sure we’re doing our bit to reduce our carbon footprint where possible.

Timber is a natural renewable resource providing trees are being replanted at a similar rate to which they’re being cut down. That’s why we offer sustainably sourced timber to our customers, who ensure that wood is produced from well-managed forests.

Added to this, timber is recyclable and is also far more energy-efficient than other materials such as concrete or steel.

4. Add value to a home

A timber staircase can add significant value to your home – and we’re not just talking in terms of numbers here. Potential buyers are known to have made a fairly accurate decision on whether they like a home or not within seconds of walking through the door, and as the stairs are often the first thing they’ll see, you’ll want to get it right. A beautiful bespoke wooden staircase will not only be timeless and attractive but also a practical addition that will catch everyone’s eye.
